O R D E R

The assessee is a company. It had filed its return of income declaring fringe benefit tax (FBT) at concessional rate of 5% on expenditure on conveyance, hotel and boarding facilities. According to the assessee, it is claiming concessional rate of 5% as against the normal rate of 20% since it is a ITES company.

2. The learned AR submitted that the issue of eligibility of deduction u/s 10A of the I.T.Act has been finally held in favour of the assessee by the Hon’ble High Court by answering question No.3 in favour of the assessee in ITA No.340/2014 (In income tax cases, the question of law No.3 was answered in favour of the assessee by holding that assessee is entitled to deduction u/s 10A of the I.T.Act).

3. We have heard rival submissions and perused the material on record. The present proceedings is out of fringe benefit tax. The assessee had claimed concessional rate of tax at 5% on certain expenditure stating its activities constitute ITES as specified in CBDT Notification. The assessee had claimed deduction u/s 10A of the I.T.Act on the ground that the activities of the assessee constitute ITES, and hence, it is a ITES undertaking, eligible for deduction u/s 10A of the I.T.Act.

4. In the result, the appeal filed by the assessee is allowed.
Order pronounced on this 01st day of September, 2021.
