Workshop on TDS on 22nd March 2018 at New Delhi

Tax deduction at Source (TDS), has been one of the vital tools of revenue collection for the Government. To avoid any leakage and non-compliance, onerous consequences (including prosecution), are present in the law. Further, with keen focus on revenue collection by the Government, there has been a substantial increase in litigation and notices received by taxpayers relating to TDS defaults and compliances, which adds to the compliance costs of business. Further, numerous interpretational issues arise at the time of making foreign remittances with DTAA provisions coming into picture and has been observed to be a pain point for the business. 

Need has been felt to deliberate on key issues on the various provisions and new developments relating to TDS, especially relating to foreign remittances. Therefore, ASSOCHAM is organizing a Workshop to deliberate on various intricate provisions and compliance requirements pertaining to TDS, as per the following schedule:
