All the case decisions compiled below are selected on the basis of their practical applications in periods 201 the Income Tax proceedings. These cases are pronounced between the periods Nov 2010 to NOV 2011 specifically applicable for CA FINAL May 2012 term. 2012 Section 2(22)(e) : A partnership firm is a shareholder for applicability of section 2(22)(e), even though shares held in names of individual partners : [CIT vs. M/s National Travel Services (Delhi HC)(Very Important)]

The assessee was a partnership firm consisting of three partners being Naresh Goyal, Surinder Goyal and Jet Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. The assessee was the “beneficial owner” of 48.18% of the share capital of Jet Air Pvt. Ltd which were held in the name of its partners Naresh Goyal and Surinder Goyal. The assessee took a loan of Rs. 28.52 crores from Jet Air Pvt Ltd. The AO held that the said loan was assessable as “deemed dividend” u/s 2(22)(e) in the hands of the assessee which was reversed by the Tribunal, but High court had decided the same in favour of the department by giving the said principle: The first limb of s. 2(22)(e) is attracted if the payment is made by a company by way of advance or loan “to a shareholder, being a person who is the beneficial owner of shares”. While it is correct that the person to whom the payment is made should not only be a registered shareholder but a beneficial share holder, the argument that a firm cannot be treated as a “shareholder” only because the shares are held in the names of its partners is not acceptable. If this contention is accepted, in no case a partnership firm can come within the mischief of s. 2 (22)(e) because the shares would always be held in the names of the partners and never in the name of the firm. This would frustrate the object of s. 2(22)(e) and lead to absurd results. Accordingly, for s. 2(22)(e), a firm has to be treated as the “shareholder” even though it is not the “registered shareholder”.
