Dear Sir

My client is a Pvt Ltd company. It makes online payment to compnaies located outside India for purchase of Domains & servers. Plz let me know following:

1. Whether any service Tax to be paid by my client on reverse charge basis ?

2. Whether any TDS to be deducted ? if yes, at what rate ? As, there is no provision for deduction of TDS while making online payment, whether my client has to deposit TDS from its pocket ?

Service Tax is applicable on reverse charge basis.

TDS has to be deducted as per section 195. while making payment you have retain tds component and balance to be transferred.

If service is in the nature of online database retrival service then POPS would be outside india and not chargeable to service tax. Otherwise its an import of service and service tax has to be paid on reverse charge basis. As far as TDS goes TDS should be retained and then transferred. Tds rates should be considered as per sec 9 rw relevant dtaa.
