Corporate and Professional updates on 11th July 2019

Direct tax Updates:

  • The taxman will ‘suo motu’ allot a fresh PAN to a person who files tax returns with only Aadhaar as part of a new arrangement to link the two databases, the CBDT chief said after the Budget proposed that only the biometric ID is enough for tax purposes.
  • The government has ruled out a rollback of the ‘super-rich’ tax on foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) organised as trusts or association of persons. The tax on such FPIs will yield an estimated Rs 400 crore, as against the overall revenue gain of Rs 12,000 crore from the surcharge. 
  • Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her maiden Budget last week proposed a hike in surcharge for the super-rich from 15 per cent to 25 per cent for incomes between Rs 2 crore and Rs 5 crore, and from 15 per cent to 37 per cent for incomes above Rs 5 crore a year.
  • The move will hit 40 per cent of the FPIs. According to reports, about 2,000 FPIs operate as trusts and not companies due to several advantages related to flexibility and tax-efficient repatriation. “There is no question of a rollback. We are not targeting any one section. If you are a non-company, you will be taxed as an individual, the same way you also enjoy the tax or other advantages of being operating as one. We can’t treat them separately.”
  • Due date for submitting income tax returns is 31st July 2019 for all cases in which income tax audit is not mandatory. make sure to file your returns within time to avoid penalties.
  • Finance ministry shows that about 40% of foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) — those that follow the trust structure will be impacted by the higher surcharge levied in the budget. The majority 60% of FPIs that use the corporate structure will not be impacted.

RBI Updates:

  • RBI norms on large exposures for banks are not only compliant with the Basel requirements, they are stricter in some areas as well, according to the findings of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.
  • Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) six-member monetary policy committee, oil prices and their impact was a key factor that pushed two members to vote against a cut in the policy repo rate. RBI deputy governor Viral Acharya and nominee member Chetan Ghate voted against a rate cut on the basis of their concerns that rising crude oil prices have the ability to push up everything from headline inflation to inflation expectations. Ghate observed that core inflation, which remains around worrying levels of 5%, will be buttressed by rising crude oil prices, and this makes inflation management challenging.
