    We have given a single PO for installation of EPABX and phones. Vendor has given separate invoices for Material and Labour charges with VAT and service tax respectively. Whether this transaction is to be treated as Works Contract Tax – whether WCT TDS under Maha VAT and Reverse charge under Service tax are applicable on this transaction?

    Thanks in Advance

    Hi, your article does not mention the threshold limit of 5 lakhs. My question I paid the vendor for Rs 2,00,000 in June 2014 assuming that the threshold limit will not be met. I again paid the vendor for 3,50,000 in october 2014. While making the payment i need to deduct TDS at 5,50,000 or at 50,000.

    Thanks,
    Prateek
