What is Dependent Agency PE (DAPE)?
f a person resident in India represents or acts on behalf of the foreign enterprise, his presence in India may be regarded as the presence of a foreign enterprise in India and could trigger the establishment of a PE in India of that foreign enterprise.

The circumstances which lead to the creation of DAPE of the foreign enterprise in India are when ALL the following conditions are satisfied:

1) A person is dependent on the foreign enterprise

2) Such person acts on behalf of the foreign enterprise

3) He has the authority to conclude contracts on behalf of the foreign enterprise

4) He habitually exercises such authority to conclude contracts on behalf of the foreign enterprise
What is Permanent establishment (PE)?
Permanent establishment (PE) is created by business activity that is sufficient for a corporation to be viewed as having a stable and ongoing presence in a foreign country.

If the activity results in some type of locally created revenue, then the host country may impose corporate taxes at the local rate. As the term implies, ‘permanent establishment’ will be triggered by a company’s activities that reflect ongoing and persistent revenue creation, rather than sporadic or isolated business efforts.
What is Construction PE and Service PE?
In the case of a construction or installation project, a taxable event will arise in India only when the activities of a foreign enterprise constitute a "construction PE" in India. A Construction PE exists when the construction site or an installation project is carried out for a period more than the prescribed period under the respective Tax Treaty with that country.
What is the concept of Permanent Establishment?
The concept of Permanent Establishment is one of the most important concepts in International Taxation. The existence of a Permanent Establishment or otherwise, would in most cases determine the exposure to domestic tax liability in the country of source. It is, therefore, imperative to understand the concept fully before embarking on the structuring of activities in another jurisdiction.
State the type of PE's that India has signed with various countries??
Fixed Place PE:
A fixed place PE of a foreign enterprise exists in India (source country) when the following tests are satisfied:

Physical place:
There must be a physical place of business. It does not matter whether this place of business is owned or leased.

The place of business must be a fixed place. The residence of an employee may also be treated as a PE if the same if used as an office for business.

The place of business must be for a fixed and reasonably long period of time. The term 'carried on in the definition connotes that a mere passing, transient or casual activity, though carried out from a particular place, does not fall within the scope of the definition of PE. There should be a reasonable degree of continuity and regularity.

At Disposal:
The place must be at the disposal of the foreign entity. If the place of business is situated in the business premises of another enterprise and the foreign enterprise has a certain part thereof at its constant disposal, that premises may be considered as having a PE in India.

Business activity:
The proper business activity must be carried out from such a fixed place.
