TDS Applicable on Lease Hold Land Purchase

This query is : Resolved 

10 February 2024 If we have purchase a Leasehold Land of Rs. 2,00,00,000/- from SIDCUL for setup a factory. and Lease Rent paid to the SIDCUL Authority in future.

TDS applicable or Not u/s 194IA on Leasehold Land Purchase of Rs. 2,00,00,000/-@1%.

Kindly confirm for TDS deduct or not on above transaction.

11 February 2024 TDS not applicable.
It is possible to argue that lease premium paid for leasing land and/or building for long period (say 99 years) does not result in withholding tax liability u/s 194-IA. However, care must be taken to draft the agreement between the lessor and the lessee substantiating the intention of the parties to the contract. The ownership in substance, if retained with the lessor throughout the tenure of the lease clearly indicates that what is transferred is the rights of usage of land and/or building and not the asset itself.

17 February 2024 Thanks sir,
one more point is if Lease Rent not paid in future then TDS liability arise or not.

18 February 2024 Check with SIDCUL what has been done by other lease holders.
