3. How to Collect TCS?
TCS to be collected when you receive payment more than Rs. 50 lacs that means when you receive the payment. So, TCS NOT TO BE INCLUDED in INVOICE. The TCS can be collected by charging through debit note in the month end, when you receive payment.
You sold goods to amber worth Rs. 1.10 crore. AMBER ENTERPRISE makes payment of Rs. 60 lacs to you in NOV 2020. (ASSUME YOU HAVE ALREADY COLLECTED FROM AMBER RS. 50 LAC EARLIER)
Now when you receive payment from AMBER ENTERPRISE, you have to raise A DEBIT NOTE in NOVEMBER end FOR RS. 4500 (RS. 60 LACS X 0.075%).
4. Why Debit note is a better option?
The logic for issuance of debit note may be that debit note to be issued after the time of collection received so that it can be charged only when Condition of 50 Lac collection triggers. And no hassles of write off, kasar, bad debt, sales return, price change, credit note etc. (which would otherwise problematic if TCS charged on Invoice). Also, it will shift liability only when You receive the payment (so is the provision says)
On a month end, issue a debit note of Amount equal to TCS -à collect the amount from him —-à pay to the Government
5. How to do Accounting Entry?
i. In Above Example, On Last Day On Month When You Receive Payment From Amber Enterprise –

Extract of Press Release On 30-9-2020
It has been reported in the media that TCS has been made applicable to the amount received before 1st October, 2020. It is clarified that this report is not correct.
