EQUAL TRATMENT IN PAYMENT OF ROYALTY
UNDER FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY COLLABORATION


It has now been decided by the Government that all companies irrespective of the extent of foreign equity in the shareholding, who have entered into foreign technology collaboration agreements may henceforth be permitted on automatic approval route to make royalty payments at 8% on exports and 5% on domestic sales without any restriction on the duration of the royalty payments. The ceiling on payment of lumpsum fee/ royalty on the automatic route would continue to apply in all cases.

Earlier only wholly owned subsidiaries were permitted to make payment of royalty at the same rate to their offshore parent companies without any restriction on the duration of the royalty payment.
