TDS on Work Contract

  • Forum

Hi All,

We have assigned a work contract to the main contractor who will take care about compleation of the turnkey project. The total project cost bifurcated as "material & labour" and "co-ordination fee".  In this scenario, what is the cost on which TDS 2% is to be deducted, is it on "material & labour" or only on "labour".  Aslo what would be the cost on which WCT is to be deducted by us.

Thank You

WCT TDS as applicable in the project state to be deducted from the total sales price , i.e.invoice value including material,labour,co-ordination fee etc,.

Yours being a turnkey lumsum indivisible contract,WCT shall be applicable on the gross total project value.

Incase the whole contract would have been awarded as a split contract , i.e.separate contract for supply,labour and co-ordination,WCT would not have been attracted , thus no WCT TDS.

Hope,I have adequately clarified , may revert for any further clf.

Thanks for your clarification on WCTDS.

But also wanted TDS as per Income Tax Act.

We are deducting TDS @ 10% on Co-Ordination Fee.

But my doubt is whether 2% TDS to be deducted on Labout as well Material or only labour ?
