1. CONCEPT OF TCS
Govt. is taking step for increasing tax payers base. One such major step is levy of TCS on sale of goods u/s 206C(1H). Let us understand in simple term- If turnover of business is more than 10 Crores in F.Y. 2019-20 than it has to collect TCS @ 0.075% (Due to Covid-19) on sale of goods above 50 lacs particular sale party.
2. 7 RULES FOR COLLECTION OF TCS
- Rule No.1: Turnover of seller selling goods in previous F.Y. 2019-20 should be more than 10 Crores.
- Rule No.2: TCS should be collected if you receive more than 50 lacs from buyer from 1st April 2020 on sale of goods. Sale of services is not included.
- Rule No.3: TCS should be collected only from 01/10/2020. It means limit of receipt of 50lacs should be seen from 1st April 2020 but TCS should be collected from 01/10/2020 only.
- Rule No.4: There is no relation with time of sale made. TCS should be collected when you receive the amount from party. It is applicable on Receipt basis.
- Rule No.5: Rate of TCS from 01st October 2020 to 31/03/2021 is 0.075% i.e. for every 1lakh rupees, Rs.75/- is required to be collected. But actual rate is 0.01%. Due to Covid-19 25% rate has been reduced. If PAN is not provided by buyer, than rate of TCS shall be 1%.
- Rule No.6: The limit of 50lacs is per year per buyer.
- Rule No.7: TCS is to be charged on sale figure including GST.
3. LET US SEE SOME EXAMPLES-
Shankar Trading Company (STC) supplies Plastic containers to Gupta Industries(GI). Turnover of Shankar Trading Company in F.Y.2019-20 is 25 Crores.
- Case-1: Sale made to Gupta Industries from 01/04/2020 to 30/09/2020 is Rs. 65 lakhs. STC received 55 lakhs during 01/04/2020 to 30/09/2020 and balance 10lakhs is received on 02/10/2020. Now STC has to collect TCS @0.075% on whole 10 lakhs i.e. Rs.750/- at the time of receipt of Rs.10lakhs. Therefore amount to be received from Gupta Industries is 10lakhs+750=10,00,750/-. Now this Rs.750/- is required to be deposited by STC upto 7th of Next month i.e. upto 07/11/2020 to credit of Central Govt.
- Case-2: Sale made to Gupta Industries from 01/04/2020 to 30/10/2020 is Rs.20 lacs. STC received Rs.10 lakhs between Apr-Oct 2020 and remaining 10 lakhs is received on 02/10/2020. Then TCS is not required to be deducted because receipt during the half year does not exceed Rs.50lacs.
- Case-3: Same as case-2 but STC received previous balance of Rs.50 lacs between Apr-Oct 2020, than TCS would be required to be deducted on 10lacs because receipt exceeded 50lacs.
- Case-4: Receipt from Gupta Industries on account of sale of goods is Rs. 60lacs from Apr-March 2020. Advance is received of Rs. 70 lacs on further sale than also TCS is required to be deducted on 70 lacs.
4. NOT APPLICABLE–
