TDS On Transport Agent

Mukesh Katara (Account manager) (483 Points)

We have hired a truck from a union of transporter having its own PAN but no vehicle in its own name.One vehicle is provided to us by the union. As we have no oral or written contract with the vehicle owner the Section 194C should not be applicable. Please advice.

If the amount you would pay the transporter exceeds Rs 30,000 then 194c will be applicable.

in my view ... if union does not in the possession of any or more than 10 vehicle and union provide the declaration in writing that they are not in the possession of more than 10 vehicle any time during the previous year and also provide PAN no. then no Tds will be deducted by you .. see section 194(6) and section 44AE With explaination ... its my own personal view pls take other experts advice too

You can deduct tax under section 194C Contractor/Subcontractor. but if the PAN Holder don't want to get deducted TDS he can furnish self declaration under 194C(6) with detailed format. same he can also provide you on stamp paper with notary public.

No he cannot furnish declaration since 194c clearly says owning upto 10 truck since he is not owning so declaration invalid and tds needs to be deducted if above threshold.
Nd how can u not have any oral contract?
Then how can there be a transaction
Contract doesnt mean series of events
Even a single event is a contract

SIR, If We have contract of transportation with transporter who not owns any vehicle then what are provisions of tds ? and if truck owner gives declaration that he not owns more than 10 vehicles then what are provision of tds ? please clear my concepts in both the cases.
