Section 194Q which will be effective from 01-July-2021, and applicable to Any person, being a buyer who is responsible for paying any sum to any resident (hereafter in this section referred to as the seller) for purchase of any goods of the value or aggregate of such value exceeding fifty lakh rupees in any previous year, shall, at the time of credit of such sum to the account of the seller or at the time of payment thereof by any mode, whichever is earlier, deduct an amount equal to 0.1 percent. of such sum exceeding fifty lakh rupees as income-tax.
The TDS is only required to be deducted by those people (i.e buyer) whose total sales, gross receipts or turnover from the business carried on by him exceed ten crore rupees during the financial year immediately preceding the financial year in which the purchase of goods is carried out.
Reason to come up with Section 194Q
Last year the government implemented TCS provision for Seller on Receipt of Sales of Goods, more than Rs. 50 Lakhs as sale consideration, during the current financial year. The TCS is payable on the amount of receipt which is greater than 50 Lakhs and received after 1st. Oct. 2020. The rate of TCS is 0.1% and Due to COVID-19 Pandemic Rate of TCS reduce by 25 % until 31 March 2021 and its effective rate is 0.075%. Another Condition for its applicability was 'seller' means a person whose total sales, gross receipts or turnover from the business carried on by him exceed ten crore rupees during the financial year immediately preceding the financial year in which the sale of goods is carried out.
There were instances where Seller Turnover is less than 10 Crore but his receipt from sales of goods to a particular buyer exceeding Rs.50 Lakhs. Therefore, there was no liability of TCS on seller. To handle this situation Government come up with a similar type of provision for Purchaser (Buyer) via TDS applicability.
