HOW ARE YOU, I HAVE A QUARRY WE ARE IN BUSINESS OF IMPORT AND WHEN WE ARE IMPORTING GOODS AND TRANSFERING ADVANCE MONEY AGAINST IMPORT OF GOODS WE SUBMITTED FROM NO 15CB AND 15 CA TO OUR BANK i.e BANK OF BARODA. BECAUSE OUR BANK i.e BANK OF BARADA DOES NOT TRANSFERED MONEY WITHOUT FORM NO 15CA & 15CB. BUT AT THE SAME TIME THE OTHER BANK LIKE CORPORATION BANK, AXIS BANK THEY DO NOT ASK FOR FORM NO 15 CA AND FORM NO 15CB FORM TRANSFERIGN MONEY AGAINST IMPORT.
MY QYARRY IS WHICH BANK IS RIGHT OR WHICH BANK IS WROUNG. AS I HAVE PERSONALLY VISITED TO CORPORATION THEY TOLD ME THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT OF FORM NO 15CA AND 15 CB AS PER RBI CIRCULAR.
PLEASE I WOULD LIKE TO KN0W IF BANK OF BARODA OUR BANK IS WROUNG THEN I WOULD LIKE TO OPEN MY C/A WITH SOME OTHER BANK BECAUSE IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR US TO GO TWICE OR THRICE TO CA OFFICE FOR FORM NO 15CA. IF SOME TIME CA IS AVAILABLE WE CANNOT TRANSFERED MONEY IN THAT CASE.
Form 15CA & 15CB both are must to be submitted to bank while remitting foreign payment alongwith Form A-2, these as per guidlines issued by RBI. You can not give excuse that CA is not available. Every Form A-2, payment should accompanied with Form 15CA & 15CB.
I don't agree with Mr. Kapil and Mr. Sanjay. if this is import of goods then no need of 15CA and 15CB. only A-2 is sufficient. 15CA and 15CB is for payment for services. For import of goods these are not applied.
Could you please help me out that there is no requirement of FORM NO 15CA OF 15CB IN the case of import of goods. i mean is there any circular where is mentioned these forms means payment only for services. so that i can show this to our Banker.
Sir, I will feel highly oblidge if you get this work done.
Dear Mr. Negi These are form is applicable vide circular no 4/2009 dt 29-6-2009. this is applicable u/s 195 and 195 is for TDS on services. on purchase or import of material sec 195 is not applicable so these forms will also not applicable. some part of circular is given below:
Section 195 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 mandates deduction of income tax from payments made or credit given to non-residents at the rates in force. The Reserve Bank of India has also mandated that except in the case of certain personal remittances which have been specifically exempted, no remittance shall be made to a non-resident unless a no objection certificate has been obtained from the Income Tax Department. This was modified to allow such remittances without insisting on a no objection certificate from the Income Tax Department, if the person making the remittance furnishes an undertaking (addressed to the Assessing Officer) accompanied by a certificate from an Accountant in a specified format. The certificate and undertaking are to be submitted (in duplicate) to the Reserve Bank of India / authorised dealers who in turn are required to forward a copy to the Assessing Officer concerned. The purpose of the undertaking and the certificate is to collect taxes at the stage when the remittance is made as it may not be possible to recover the tax at a later stage from non-residents. 2. There has been a substantial increase in foreign remittances, making the manual handling and tracking of certificates difficult. To monitor and track transactions in a timely manner, section 195 was amended vide Finance Act, 2008 to allow CBDT to prescribe rules for electronic filing of the undertaking. The format of the undertaking (Form 15CA) which is to be filed electronically and the format of the certificate of the Accountant (Form 15CB) have been notified vide Rule 37BB of the Income-tax Rules, 1962.
But as per Rbi Circular:- .6 Reasons for Change: Section 195 of the Income Tax Act 1961 mandates deduction of tax from payments made or credit given to non-residents at the rates in force and CBDT circular No.4/2009 (Annex IV) dated June 29, 2009 provides that an undertaking in Form 15 CA accompanied by Chartered Accountant’s certificate in Form 15 CB needs to be furnished by the person making the remittance or giving credit to a non-resident.
3.7 Basically, any non-business related expenditure or payment does not attract TDS. Therefore, if the remittance is not related to any business transaction or the remitter is not claiming it as business expenditure and the payment is by debit to the bank account of the resident individual the question of submitting Form 15 CA/CB does not arise
