Corporate Updates – 14-09-2016


CBDT has issued 14 FAQs on the Direct Tax Dispute Resolution Scheme, 2016 (‘Scheme’). CBDT has clarified that assessment orders resulting in reducing loss are not eligible under the Scheme, however Scheme may be availed if an appeal is pending before Commissioner (Appeals) in respect of penalty order framed as a result of variation in quantum loss. Further, the board has clarified that where an appeal was pending before CIT(Appeals) as on 29.02.2016 and the CIT(Appeals) has already disposed of the same before making the declaration, the declaration under the Scheme cannot be filed. The scheme provides an opportunity to tax payers who are under litigation to come forward and settle the dispute in accordance with the provisions of the Scheme.
