94H is now not applicable on Flipkart and Amazon they call it Fees and not Commission.
In Amazon they name it as EasyShip Weight Handling Fee, Fixed Closing Fee, Listing Fee, Refund Processing Fee,
So how can this come under 94H. It should be considered under 94C
Kindly update if I am wrong.
From April 2016 turnover limit of Rs 1 Crore has been increased to Rs 2 Crore? Is this information correct?
TDS category for Ecommerce market place is not very clearly defined in the law books.
The idea of Deducting the TDS is to Establish a Transaction trail between two parties and to ensure that the commission receiver / contract money receiver is under the Ambit of Laws.
As such if their is a slight difference in TDS category that you deduct doesn't make you a defaulter.
All seller should deduct TDS except below category.
1. Proprietorship Firm which are not under the ambit of Audit.
Different TDS category for ecommerce
1. 94C- contract = shipping charge / logistic charge paid to market place/ Advertisement charges paid to market place. 2%
2. 94H- commission/brokerage = all Commission paid to market place. 10% upto 31st May 2016 / 5% from 1st June 2016.
However there is a catch in the invoices raised by marketplace.
----Amazon - It says it is Business support Fee. This should ideally come under 94H. Since the nature of transaction is also commission type.
----- Flipkart : - it clearly bifurcates Shipping charges and other. So shipping charges will go under 94C and balance under 94H
----- Other MP - as per description on the invoice raised by them.
Please note that TDS is applicable only on the Basic amount and No TDS should be deducted on service tax.
People to remain on safer side generally deduct the TDS in the higher slab category.
Also friends please don't worry if you have deducted TDS on a higher side. The amount will be completely reimbursed to you.
In case of any query please report here.
Increase the turnover limit under Presumptive taxation scheme under section 44AD of the Income Tax Act to ` 2 crores to bring big relief to a large number of assessees in the MSME category.
All type of business entity except Unaudited Proprietorship Firm have to compulsorily deduct TDS depending on the nature of the payment.
