Budget Effect: Secondary adjustments to become a reality under Indian transfer pricing regime

The move, which aligns the country's transfer pricing.
India has been consistently moving towards a non-adversarial tax regime. Efforts taken in this regard include measures to curb litigation on controversial matters such as transfer pricing treatment of issuing securities at premium and applicability of a minimum alternate tax levy to foreign companies. India has taken the next big step in its transfer pricing framework with the budget ushering in the concept of ‘secondary adjustments’. The move, which aligns the country’s transfer pricing.
Transfer Pricing
A new Section 92CE has been introduced to provide for secondary adjustments in certain cases to align TP provisions to OECD TP Guidelines and international best practices. Under new provisions, ‘secondary adjustment' is defined as an adjustment in the books of accounts of the assessee and its associated enterprise ("AE") to reflect that the actual allocation of profits between the assessee and its AE are consistent with TP determined because of primary adjustment, thereby removing the imbalance between cash account and actual profit of the assessee.

This section also requires that in the event of the primary adjustment to the TP results in increase in income or reduction of losses, the excess money that is made available to the AE, if not repatriated to India within a specified time, shall deemed to be an advance made by the assessee to such AE. Interest on such deemed advance should be treated as an income in the hands of taxpayer and shall be computed as per the prescribed manner.

Many countries in the world today permit secondary adjustment, namely, Canada, South Korea, South Africa and certain other European countries, by treating the difference between ALP and transfer prince as either deemed dividend or deemed loan or advance.
