Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) was developed by the Indian Income Tax Department to collect tax from all sources of income. It is the amount deducted from a person’s income and remitted to the Central Government by an authorized deductor.

It is an advance tax and is totally a deductor’s (the one paying an income to the other) responsibility. If the payment exceeds a certain threshold limit, a company making payment is required to deduct tax at source according to the rates prescribed by the tax department. 

There are various sections of TDS that suggest the nature and rate of TDS to be deducted while making payments. Having clear knowledge about the same is essential in the filing of TDS.

TDS applies to many expenses, some of them are –

  • Salaries (Section 192)
  • Rents and commission (Section 194 I and 194 H)
  • Consultations and professional fees (Section 194 J)
  • Interest payments to banks (Section 194 A) and more.

 

Filing TDS is imperative and inevitable for your business. 

  • The tax department is strict with late payment of TDS and takes it very seriously. Any delay or non-payment of TDS is subject to penalty. A penalty of Rs.200 per day shall be charged after the specified date of TDS filing in case of delay. In more serious cases, non-payment of TDS is punishable by imprisonment from 3 months upto 7 years.
  • TDS acts as a measure for tax evasion as it automatically gets deducted from one’s income in a periodic manner.
  • It makes paying tax convenient.
  • TDS plays a major role in tax audits and makes the audit season less dreadful for businesses.

Manual Filing of TDS is a time consuming task and is prone to many errors. You can’t afford to go back and forth from the website to your software to cross check every minor mistake. Investing in cloud accounting software that cuts down various tedious steps of filing TDS becomes essential in this case.
