Finance Act, 2017 inserted Section 92CE in the Income-tax Act, 1961 to provide for Secondary Adjustment mechanism in the Transfer Pricing. As a result of Primary Adjustment, if there is an upward adjustment, such disallowance shall be construed as an Advance or Loan to AE and accordingly a Secondary Adjustment is proposed on the same.
CBDT now has notified new Rule 10CB which prescribes computation of Interest income pursuant to the Secondary Adjustment and the Time Limit for repatriation of so deemed Advance or Loan.
