- Section 194Q provides for TDS @0.1% if the payment is to be made to a “Resident Seller”. Hence in the case of import is done, the TDS u/s 194Q does not arise.
- CBDT vide Circular No. 17 of 2020, clarified that provisions of Section 206C(1H) clarify that the word “goods” u/s 206C(1H) does not include securities that are traded in the Stock Exchange. Thus the question of TCS does not arise.
- The term “Goods “refers to every type of movable property, thus the provisions of TDS do not apply to the purchase of immovable property by a developer.
These provisions are very confusing in practical life. There is an uncertainty whether the seller will collect the TCS or the buyer will deduct the TDS. Both the parties will have to rely on communication with each other from time to time.
