  2. Dear Sir/Madam,

    Ours is a manufacturing company and received a bill towards exhibition participation fee. Is TDS deductible in such case?

    and also should tds be decucted on freight charges

  3. dear raju chaudhary sir,


    i am an accountant of the educational institute and institute run under trust.

    i would like to know

    if I pay the bill of Rs. 45000/- by cheque, what about tds on this


    if the same amount is paid in cash what about tds ?

    and if i have no working capital to meet the expenses of the business

    then what amouint should i borrow from others to avoid tds

    amount in cash —————-

    amount by cheque ————-

    can i take donations ? if yes, what is the limit

    • Hi rajendra shah

      Payments exceeding Rs. 20,000/- cannot be made in cash. If the same are made, the expense will be disqualified.
      TDS has to be deducted if the same falls under the relevant sections concerning TDS. It makes no difference as regards to TDS whether the payments are made in cash or through bank.
      If the required TDS is not deducted, 30% of the expense will be disallowed in the current year.
      To the next query, borrowing working capital has nothing to do with TDS. You can borrow any amount but TDS provisions will still be applicable.
      There is no limit on donations but it is better to get donations with the name and address of the donor. Anonymous donations should be as few as possible.

  4. Nice chart one query is that u/s 194c if the one time payment 30000 or whole year amount exceed 75000 that time no need to deduct the tax wef 01062015 if receiving the declaration
