TDS U/S 194Q ON PURCHASE FROM KACHHA ARTIYA, Income Tax
|TDS U/S 194Q ON PURCHASE FROM KACHHA ARTIYA|
"A Person Has , Let's Say Mr A, Turnover Above 10 Crore In AY 2021-22. He Is A Trader In The Grain Market. Mr A Buys Goods From Agent I.E. Kacha Adatiya. This Agent Acquires Goods From The Different Farmers In The Gram Market. Agent Issues A Sale Bill To Mr A In Which He Charges The Cost Of The Goods, Commission And GST. Mr A Does Not Know Who The Actual Seller Is, He Only Knows The Agent. The Agent Reports Only Commission Income In His Books Of Account And The Cost Of The Goods He Charges In The Bill Gets Adjusted Against The Farmer's Payment. Hence, The Cost Of Goods is Not Turnover/Sale Income For Him. Now My Question Is From View Point Of Buyer I.E. Mr A: "Whether He Is Required To Deduct TDS U/S 194Q On Cost Of Goods Paid To The Agent? He Already Deducts TDS U/S 194H On Commission Paid To The Agent."

As per my understanding about you query;
Your client's turnover exceeds 10 crores hence any amount paid / credited exceeds 50 lakhs then he is liable to deduct TDS U/s 194Q on value of Goods less Commission amount which liable to deduct TDS U/s 194H.
TDS U/s 194Q to be deducted on Goods Value.
No TDS U/s 194Q on Commission Portion which liable to deduct TDS under another section.
if the goods dealt are agricultural goods and the seller is exempt from tax under section 10(1) being agriculture income, you can take shelter under 'Guidelines under section 194Q of Income tax Act, 1961' under Circular 13 of 2021, which clarified as below:
4.5 Whether tax is to be deducted when the seller is a person whose income is exempt
4.5.1 It is requested to clarify if the provisions of section 194Q of the Act shall apply to a seller whose income is exempt. To remove difficulty, it is clarified that the provisions of section 194Q of the Act shall not apply on purchase of goods from a person, being a seller, who as a person is exempt from income tax under the Act (like person exempt under section 10) or under any other Act passed by the Parliament (Like RBI Act, ADB Act etc.).
4.5.2 Similarly, with respect to sub-section (1H) of section 206C of the Act, it is clarified that the provisions of this sub-section shall not apply to sale of goods to a person, being a buyer, who as a person is exempt from income tax under the Act (like person exempt under section 10) or under any other Act passed by the Parliament (Like RBI Act, ADB Act etc.).
4.5.3 The above clarifications would not apply if only part of the income of the person (being a seller or being a buyer. as the case may be) is exempt.
