 Dear Prithi,

 

No section covers the laibility to deduct TDS on software license. According to me License fees does not attract TDS.

 

Sorry but i don't know any case law on the same.

I dont Know Any Case law. but Answer to Your Question is

IT IS COVERED UNDER SECTION 194 J. FOR EXAMPLE

WE ARE USING COMPUTDS SOFTWARE. IT IS POLICY TO RENEW IT BY EVERY YEAR.THEN IT IS PROVIDING US SERVICES SO TDS IS DEDUCTED.

HEY SUDHANSHU

IF LICENSE FEE IS RELATED TO PRIVATE CO THAN IT IS COME UNDER FEE & PROFESSIONAL CHARGES 194 J

IF LICENSE FEE IS RELATED TO GOVT. CO. THEN THERE IS NO TDS TO BE DEDUCTED

We need more clarification in this case. What kind of renewal it is. Is it a yearly renewal or more than a year?

Hi!

Tax need to be deducted U / Section 194J if the gross payment exceed Rs. 20,000.00 for a F.Y. Please read Section 44AA for a better understanding.
