Is there a Permanent Establishment (PE)? - Recent trends in taxation of PEs in India

Existence of PE has emerged as a contentious international tax issue for multinational enterprises doing business in India. The question "Is there a PE?" is probably the most frequent tax treaty issue that Courts have to deal with. Even though the concept has existed in tax treaties for several decades, globalization of international trade and development of the digital economy, has made the application of the concept a vexed issue. A spate of recent rulings by Courts in India point to a trend towards increasing the number of situations in which PE would be found to arise, and at the same time providing clarity on situations where a PE does not arise.

Watch LIVE audio webcast, where Rajendra Nayak, Partner - International Tax Services, EY India, will discuss recent trends in taxation of PE in India in light of recent case laws and implications on business arrangements commonly used by multinational enterprises for establishing operations in India.
