It is necessary that the assessee or the person concerned liable to deduct and pay the TDS must be responsible for paying to a resident any sum, by way of fees for professional services, fees for technical services, royalty or any sum referred to in clause (va) of sec. 28. Whereas just contrary to the said conditions, in the instant case, the assessee company has not paid even a single penny to its super stockiest. Rather, it is just the opposite. The super stockist is paying to the assessee company for the produce of Drugs.

If a particular sum is not income, requirement of making TDS non-existent

Section 201(1) uses the expression ‘any person, who is required to deduct any sum in accordance with the provisions of the Act…..’. Assessee’s stand was that there was no such requirement. As per the provisions of section 194C, an amount has to be deducted out of the sum in pursuance to a contract, at the time of payment/credit towards income-tax on the income comprised therein in terms of section 194C. When a particular sum is not income at all for an assessee, the requirement of making TDS is non-existent.

Claim of Assessee that he never received Notice not tenable if he attends on date fixed for hearing

The only question that arises for our consideration is whether the notice issued on 30.12.2004 under Section 143(2) of the Act was validly served upon the assessee-firm on 31.12.2004 as claimed by the Assessing Officer. We proceed on the assumption that the notice was not served on either of the two partners of the assessee-firm and that it was served on some person who was not specifically authorised to receive notice. Even so, we are not persuaded to hold that there was no valid service of the notice upon the assessee-firm.
