ITAT gives partial reprieve to Uber in tax demand case
In a partial reprieve for Uber India, the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) has granted a stay against a tax demand levied on the cab-hailing company and restrained the authorities from imposing any penalty. Uber had approached the tribunal after income-tax authorities carried out a survey and alleged that the company had not deducted tax at source on payments made to driver-partners. The tribunal partially stayed the demand, subject to Uber India depositing Rs 20 crore in three instalments pending disposal of the appeal. The main issue of applicability of tax deduction at source on payments will now be heard on December 11.
