TDS Rate

Under section 194Q, Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) shall be applicable at 0.1% on aggregate purchases over and above 50 lakhs from a supplier in India in a financial year.

When to Deduct?

When the value or aggregate of purchases from a supplier or payment, whichever is earlier, exceeds Rs.50 lakhs during the previous year, the provision will be effective as TDS will have to be deducted at 0.1% of the Purchase Transaction or payment.

Who should Deduct?

The buyer is responsible for making payment to a resident to purchase goods when the value of purchases from a supplier exceeds 50 lakhs during the previous year. The Purchaser, hence, is responsible for deducting TDS as applicable.

Consequences of non-deduction by the Purchaser

If the Purchaser fails to comply with the provision to deduct TDS as applicable, Section 40A(IA) provides that the value of such Purchase Transactions will be subject to 30% disallowance.
