Is TDS applicable for situation:- We have made the payment to printing and stationery vendor for printing the company invoice and envelop. We have no agreement with the vendor. He is also charging the VAT . Plz suggest.
It would come under sec. 194C of the IT Act liable to TDS.
There is no requirement of existence of a written contract. Agreement / contract can be oral. It is evidenced by conduct of the parties.
This is merely a purchase and sale transaction. hence do not confuse with tds. If the vendor charges separately for labour(separate bill for labour charges only), it will come under 194C.
No TDS is not applicable in the given situation.
As per SEC 194C TDS APPLICABLE ONLY FOR LABOUR CHARGES AND IT SHOW SAPARATE LINE ITEM IN THE ORGINAL INVOICE. BUT IN YOUR CASE TDS NOT APPLICABLE Regards Kariyappa
With due respect to the experts, I beg to differ.
The queried situation is not a merely transaction for purchase of stationery. It is a composite contract for printing of stationery involving supply of materials. This issue has already been examined vide circular no 715 dtd. 08-08-1995. The board is of the view that, TDS is attracted on supply of printed materials. It would be of benefit to refer to the following as well. http://www.caclubindia.com/forum/message_display.asp?quote=39100&group_id=6016
