Raising the threshold for specified domestic transaction in section 92BA

Raising the threshold for specified domestic transaction


The existing provisions of section 92BA of the Act define “specified domestic transaction” in case of an assessee to mean any of the specified transactions, not being an international transaction, where the aggregate of such transactions entered into by the assessee in the previous year exceeds a sum of five crore rupees. 

In order to address the issue of compliance cost in case of small businesses on account of low threshold of five crores rupees, it is proposed to amend section 92BA to provide that the aggregate of specified transactions entered into by the assessee in the previous year should exceed a sum of twenty crore rupees for such transaction to be treated as ‘specified domestic transaction’.

This amendment will take effect from 1st  April, 2016 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2016-17 and subsequent assessment years.
[Clause 24]
