Tax Collected at Source (TCS ) is the tax payable by the seller which he collects from the buyer at the time of sale , say, while purchasing a motor vehicle exceeding Rs 10 Lakhs . Budget 2020 has proposed to widen the scope by including TCS on Sale of Goods w.e.f. 01/04/2020—Sec 206(1H) .
Q 1. Who is the Seller?
Ans: Seller means a person whose total sales, gross receipts or turnover from the business carried on by him exceed Rs 10 Crore rupees during the financial year immediately preceding the financial year in which sale of goods is carried out.
Therefore, if your turnover in FY 2019-20 exceeds Rs 10 Crores, you are covered under the new TCS provisions for FY 2020-21.
Q 2. Which transactions are subjected to collection of TCS?
Ans: If the seller makes sale of goods of value or aggregate value to a buyer exceeding Rs. 50 lakhs, he needs to collect TCS at 0.10 % at the time of RECEIPT of the consideration on the amount exceeding Rs. 50 lakhs.
The TCS rate will be 1% if there is no PAN/Adhar of the buyer is available with the seller.
