TDS on repair & maintenance

Group Financial Accountant

Circular : No. 715, dated 8-8-1995

Routine, normal maintenance contracts which includes supply of spares will be covered under section 194C. However, where technical services are rendered, the provision of section 194J will apply in regard to tax deduction at source.


As per the above notification wheather we should deduct tds on spares also?

Plz also tell what is the meaning of technical services in this regard?


yes under contract parts are included in value


depending on your a/c policy if u book the spare parts in purchase or capital asset, or book it as consumables then its pure purchase, and no TDS, in this case you have to deduct TDS only on non spares section.


technical service means any service provided by architect, designer, professional, consultant. in relatin to technical field of business.

So u mean that in all these 3 cases tds will not be deducted.

can u give an example in which case tds will be deducted

also Wheather repair of computer or its parts by a person falls under technical services


hardware maintainance with out without parts is and maintanance, TDS applicable

if you computer engineer change a fan in motherboard and does not bill you separately then its combined in repair and maintanance, TDS applicable

but if you buy a scanner for computer then it get capitalized under fixed assets here no TDS


software maintanance is technical services, TDS applicable
