The term ‘Professional Services’ means services rendered by a person carrying on –

Legal;

Medical;

Engineering or architectural profession or accountancy profession;

Technical consultancy or interior decoration or advertising;

or such other profession as notified by Board for the purpose of section 44AA.

2. Fees for technical services –

The meaning of the term ‘Fees for technical services’ is the same as that provided in Explanation 2 to section 9 (1) (vii).
