It has been specifically mentioned in Memorandum of Union Budget, that any payment made in the nature of salary on which TDS under Sec 192 is deductible, will not fall under this provision (ie provision of TDS @ 10% under Sec 194J).

However, on sitting fees or any other payment, 194J will be applicable.

Section 194J of the Act – Tax deduction at source from payment to director

Under the existing provisions of the Income-tax Act, a company, being an employer, is required to deduct tax at the time of payment of salary to its employees including Managing director/whole time director. However, there is no specific provision for deduction of tax on the remuneration paid to a director which is not in the nature of salary.

It is proposed to amend section 194J to provide that tax is required to be deducted on the remuneration paid to a director, which is not in the nature of salary, at the rate of 10% of such remuneration.

Impact - By insertion of the new clause, now any amount payable to a director of a company, by way of remuneration or fees or commission, which is not in the nature of salary, shall be liable for tax deduction under Section 194 at the rate of 10%.  Accordingly, any payment to a director (whether whole-time or not) including siting fee made by a company would be liable for tax deduction at source. This would levy an extra compliance burden and responsibility on the companies for deducting taxes on payment made to its directors

Plz note that TDS u/s 192 is deducted on the Directors Remuneration in current provision also, and in the amendment and as you have told "any remuneration or fees or commission by whaat ever name called,other than those on which tax is deductible u/s 192, to a director  of a company"

It can be concluded that TDS u/s 194J is not deducted on Directors Remuneration.

Please refer Memorandum of Direct Taxes of Finance Bill, in which it has been clearly stated:

 

"Under the existing provisions of the Income-tax Act, a company, being an employer, is required to deduct tax at the time of

payment of salary to its employees including Managing director/whole time director. However, there is no specific provision for deduction of tax on the remuneration paid to a director which is not in the nature of salary.

 
It is proposed to amend section 194J to provide that tax is required to be deducted on the remuneration paid to a director,
which is not in the nature of salary, at the rate of 10% of such remuneration.
 
 
This amendment will take effect from 1st July, 2012."
 
Director Remuneration is not covered under Sec 194J

What if a director receives Remuneration which is subjected to TDS U/s 194-J by the paying Company, then Can that director claim deductions like Depreciation on his own car or interest on car loan which he used for providing services as director to that company?
