TDS as 194J or 194C

Article Assistant


Dear Friends,

A Contract is given to a Company whose only works is Testing. The bills are raised as  testing charges.

So the company has to deduct TDS as 194 J ( as the testing charges are in nature of profesional fees Since the company has no other kind of income) or 194 C ( as the company has given him the contract )

TDS should be deducted under sec194J as 194C does not govern the deduction of tax at source from payments of fees towards Professional or technical services(In SRF Finance Ltd.v.CBDT)

Testing charges will be covered under section 194J as technical services.

I think, testing work falls under "technical services". Section 194J will apply.

Testing does not involve carrying out any work in the nature of physical activities and handing over the physical possession of the works or like carriage of goods or contract of advertising or any contract like a courier company .Testing involves,examination and expressing an opinion on the subject matter and may involve,if sought for,giving an advise on the findings of the test results.For example soil testing,water testing etc which is a Technical work.The meaning of the word contract used by the queriest is in the sense of an agreement and not to be construed as a "Contract" which is mentioned in Section 194C.Hence TDS will be under section 194J.

tds should be deducted under 194 j only since testing charges are technical services under 194 j
