Indians With Indirect Holdings In Offshore Firms Come Under Tax Scanner

Indirect investments can be explained as the next-level holdings or investments in other overseas firms by an entity, wherein a resident Indian has his or her stake. IT department officials have asked individuals to specify their indirect investments in B, C and D, while at the same time also disclose investments made in A in their income tax returns, the report said.

The department has asked these high profile individuals as to why they have not disclosed their indirect investments even when they happen to be the ultimate beneficial owners (UBO) of the offshore firms.

Further in accordance with the report, non-disclosure of these indirect holdings may attract a fine of Rs. 10 lakh. And if the response received is not found to be satisfactory by the department, it may likely invoke the new black money law against the individual.
