Tax Deducted At Source(TDS):

As per the Income Tax Act, any company or person making a payment is required to deduct tax at source if the payment exceeds certain threshold limits. TDS has to be deducted at the rates prescribed by the tax department.

For example, According to the rules and regulations of Section 194J of the Income Tax Act, 1961, a person must deduct their Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) only at the rate of 10% when certain payments are made to a certain resident.

An individual should deduct TDS at the rate prescribed, when the following payments are made to a resident, in a fiscal year (higher than Rs.30,000):

  • Amount charged as professional services fee
  • Amount charged as technical service fee
