“Inner strength of character cannot be measured by any means but performance in the time of need.”
By K.L. Toth
With respect to GSTR-1 there is no special treatment of sales to TDS/ISD. Same is with ANX-1. Unlike SEZ, Exports or Deemed Exports, these sales are not reported separately. However, when we talk about TCS there is a special treatment given to TCS registrations. If taxpayer sales through an e-commerce operator, he has to provide the GSTIN of e-commerce operator while disclosing such sales. This also remains same in new returns only addition to this is a separate table is also added in new returns for e-commerce related transactions.
However, what is additional for taxpayer is to file GSTR-2X. Whenever a taxpayer supplies goods/services to a TDS/TCS registrant, TDS/TCS has been deducted by such registrant. Taxpayer can file GSTR-2X and get the refund of such deducted amount in his cash ledger.
- The max rate of TDS is 2% under GST, to be notified by CBIC.
- If the total value of supply under a contract exceeds Rs 2.5 lakhs then the person/entity would be liable to deduct TDS.
- The deductor would be liable to make the payment of TDS by the 10th day of the next month.
- For example: A department of State Government deducts TDS @2% from Y on 5 August 2017 then it is liable to make payment by 10 September 2017.
- Following people are responsible for deducting tax-:
- A department or establishment of the Central or State Government, or
- Local authority, or
- Governmental agencies, or
- Such persons or category of persons as may be notified, by the Central or a State Government on the recommendations of the Council.
E-commerce aggregators are required under the GST law for deducting and depositing tax at the rate of 1% from each of the transaction.
Any dealers/traders selling goods/services online would get the payment after deduction of 1% tax
