Interest calculation on Late payment of TDS

Consultancy in International Taxation

Dear friends

Kindly resolve my below doubt.

Suppose a payment u/s 194C is made on 25/02/2011 and TDS is also deducted on 25/02/2011 as per TDS Rules. But this TDS is deposited to the Govt. treasory on 10/03/2011. Now my query is whether interest u/s 201(1A) @ 1.5% shall be levied for one month or two months ??

Regards

Tds deducted for the current month has to be deposited on or before 7th of the following month of the month so deducted, For late deposit of TDS after deduction: Intererst @ 1.5% for every
month or part of the month.

INTEREST @ 1.5% PER MONTH OR PART OF THE MONTH WILL BE CHARGEABLE AFTER BECOMING DEFAULT IN DEPOSIT OF TDS WITHIN 7TH OF THE SUCCEEDING MONTH FOR APRIL TO FEB AND 30TH APRIL FOR MARCH MONTH..IN THIS CASE THE DUE DATE WAS 7TH MARCH,11 WITHIN WHICH IT WAS NOT DEPOSITED.AND DATE OF DEPOSIT IS 10TH MARCH,11.ONLY 3DAYS ELAPSED.SO IT COMES UNDER THE PURVIEW OF PART OF THE MONTH i.e. LESS THAN ONE MONTH AND INTEREST WILL BE CHARGED @ 1.5% ONLY FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH,11.NO QUESTION OF 2 MONTHS.

As per Sec 201 (1A) Interest will be charged  @ 1% till 30th june2010 & 1.5% from 1st July 2010 per month or part of the month on the amount of such tax from the date on which such tax was deductible to the date on which such tax is actually paid. Hence this seems to be Interest levied for Two Months as per your case.

And this is also a practical calculation which TDS officials are taking at the time of finalisation of the TDS Assessments.

Friends

For this Query M.N.Jain, I would like to quote wording of Section 201(1A) .....principal officer does not deduct the whole or any part of the tax or after deducting fails to pay the tax as required by or under this Act, he or it shall be liable to pay simple interest,—

               (i)   at one per cent for every month or part of a month on the amount of such tax from the date on which such tax was deductible to the date on which such tax is deducted; and

             (ii)   at one and one-half per cent for every month or part of a month on the amount of such tax from the date on which such tax was deducted to the date on which such tax is actually paid,

Now Mr. Jain's query falls in Sub Section (ii) of Section 201(1A). In this Query

Date of Deduction is 25.02.2011

Due Date of Deposit is 07.03.2011

& Date of Deposit is 10.03.2011

Two Part Months are there (February and March) so literally 1.5% for Every Part Month makes it to 3% for Two part months.

In my View Effective Rate of Interest for delay in deposit is 3%

(Kindly Correct me if  i am wrong in my interpretation)

It will be for one month. Interest is charged from date of deduction to date of deposit which in your case is less than a month. It will be rounded up to one month.
