  • Column: Big win for Sogo Shoshas | The Financial Express
    situation The Berry Ratio is in effect a mark up on operating costs of the trading activity that is measured by comparing the extent to which the gross profit covers operating costs without reckoning the value of traded goods The revenue authorities challenged such position on the ground that it was not consistent with the Indian transfer pricing regulations This was despite the transfer pricing officer s own finding that Sogo Shosha is a unique trading model which entails that low risk high volume and observations of the Delhi High Court in Mitsubishi Corporation s own case that it is akin to trading but not trading It was a case where the revenue authorities fell back on the literal language of the statute without giving any consideration to the business realities being extremely thin margins The tribunal put the matter in pictorial perspective stating that if a line were to be drawn between two extreme points one being trading and the other being agency then the Sogo Shosha would fall somewhere in between And it is precisely because of the model s uniqueness that comparability poses a challenge there are no Indian Sogo Shosha companies and hence it warrants a different measure of profitability for comparability purposes The Tribunal after deeply analysing the uniqueness of the model held that the PLI has to be consistent with the functional analysis regardless of the accounting treatment hence the Berry Ratio is an appropriate profit level indicator The impact of this ruling could be massive Japanese businesses have made advocacy efforts with Indian government including approaching Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent visit to Japan arguing for ease of doing business in India And responding to which the government has committed a conducive environment to grow and upgrading its relationship to the level of a Special Strategic and Global Partnership In this context the ruling of the Tribunal which makes a specific parting remark At a time when there is a clarion call by the government of India at the highest level to simplify the process of implementing the laws and ensure certainty friendly measures to the foreign enterprise doing business in India we would perhaps fail in our duty if we do not though within whatever be our inherent limitations rise to the occasion and discharge our judicial functions in a comprehensive rather than superficial manner and contribute to the dispute reaching finality sooner rather than later comes as a shot in the arm The currency of the ruling is notable the location savings theory advanced by the revenue authorities is demolished with reference to the OECD guidance on intangibles as part of the ongoing base erosion and profit shifting BEPS project Several Sogo Shosha companies have filed for advance pricing agreements APAs most Japanese APAs are bilateral and this ruling coupled with the amendment to Japanese transfer pricing regulations in 2013 recognising the Berry Ratio as an acceptable profit level indicator consistent with the OECD guidelines should pave the way
