The Budget has taken a step forward in rationalizing the tax regime through sunset provisions for certain exemptions and deductions. It will also give a boost to manufacturing and to SMEs through the reduction in tax rates. Startups will be encouraged by the 3-year tax holiday and capital gains exemption for investors. The special patent regime is an innovative idea and will encourage indigenous research and development. The rules for place of effective management have been deferred by one year in response to representations by stakeholders.
This will give time to companies to make adjustments to align with the rules. The proposals such as stay of demand, easing of TDS requirements, the alternative facility for non-residents who do not have PAN, the procedure for e-assessment and time limits for passing effect orders will facilitate a taxpayer-friendly environment and in turn the objective of ease of doing business.
