Yet another battle may be brewing between a telecom player and the taxman. Bharti Airtel has filed a petition against the tax department's claim of Rs 1,067 crore, reports CNBC-TV18ís Kritika Saxena.

What is the Taxmanís claim

When anyone travels abroad there is a certain amount of fee that your service provider makes to its international partners to ensure that you have services on a roaming basis. So, the payments which Bharti Airtel has been making since 2007 to 2011 to its international partners have been taxed by the tax department. The demand notice that was given to Bharti Airtel in January pertains to these payments.

If one breaks up the claim of Rs 1067 crore, sources says that for 2007-2008 they had asked for Rs 202 crore, for 2008-2009 it was Rs 329 crore, for 2009-2010 it was Rs 303 crore and 2010-2011 it was around Rs 221 crore

Bharti Airtelís action

Bharti Airtel is looking at fighting this and has filed a petition in the Delhi High Court. The petition outlines that they have adhered to all tax rules and the demand on tax for international roaming payment is not valid.

This is an industry wide case, if the taxman is filing a case and fighting against Bharti Airtel, some other players might also be taxed. Bharti Airtel would take this up and other telecom players might be looking at taking it up if there is any kind of tax claim case against them.
