The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), last week, came out with draft guiding principles for determination of Place of Effective Management (PoEM) and had invited stakeholder comments on the same by January 2.
     
"Representations requesting for extension of the last day for submitting comments and suggestions, have been received and considered. The comments and suggestion on the above draft guidance may now be sent by January 9, 2016," the ministry said in a statement.
     
The draft PoEM guidelines have suggested two-stage process for determining the place of effective management of a company, with a view to assess its tax liability.
    
According to the draft guidelines, the first stage would be identification of the persons who make the key management and commercial decision for the company and secondly the determination of the place where these decisions are made.
    
The modification of the existing norms, it said, is necessary as many companies skip tax liability by misusing the guidelines.
