The Domestic Companies are requirec to pay the Dividend Distribution Tax u/s 115 - O on the amount of dividend declared, distributed or paid by it.

The tax on distributed profit shall be paid within 14 days from the date of -

a. declaration of any dividend

c. payment of any dividend whichever is the earliest.

The provisions of the Finance Bill will come into effect w.e.f. 01/04 except in certain specific provisions where the provisions proposed in the budget will be effective from any other date usually 01/06.
