Hero MotoCorp—the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer—on Thursday said it has received a tax demand notice from the Income Tax Department for a total 605 crore including interest for six assessment years (FY14 to FY18 & FY20).

“The company has on April 3, 2024, received assessment orders/demand notices dated March 30, 2024 pertaining to six assessment years from the Income Tax Department,” Hero MotoCorp said in an exchange filing.

The company has received the aforesaid orders/notices pertaining to six assessment years, amounting to a tax demand of Rs. 308.65 crore and interest thereon of Rs. 296.22 crore. This is on account of certain disallowances, for the assessment years 2013-14 to 2017-18 and 2019-20,” Hero MotoCorp added.

The assessment orders and demand notices are for six assessment years including FY14, FY15, FY16, FY17, FY18 and FY20. The notice is on account of certain disallowances in the mentioned assessment years.

“The company is examining the orders/ notices received and shall take appropriate steps, including the filing of appeals and rectification applications” Hero MotoCorp added.

“In the opinion of the Management, the demand raised is unsustainable in nature and is unlikely to have the exchange filing read.
