Section 206CCA of the Income Tax Act, 1961 (the "Act") provides Collection of Tax at Source (TCS) from the customer/buyer /remitter at higher rates in the event of specific transactions (including outward remittance under LRS), if the customer/ buyer/ remitter is a specified person (i.e. non-filer of Income Tax Returns) as defined u/s 206CCA of the Act.
Section 206CCA is applicable from 1st July 2021.
The higher rate of TCS shall be also collected for transactions under LRS that exceed the threshold of INR 7 Lakh in a Financial Year and the customer/ remitter/ buyer is a non-filer of Income Tax Returns as defined u/s 206CCA of the Act. Higher TCS rates are also applicable for some other transactions as prescribed under the Income Tax provisions.
The TCS is required to be collected at higher rates than prescribed in the Act, if the person has not filed Income Tax returns for two Assessment Years relevant to the two previous years immediately prior to the previous year in which tax is required to be collected, for which the time limit of filing of Income Tax Return under section 139(1) has expired: and Going back to Point 6 'Example 1' in this FAQ document, the aggregate of TDS and TCS in this case is INR 50,000 or more in each of the two previous years.
If the buyer/ remitter/ customer fulfils the conditions in Point 12, then TCS shall be collected at higher of the following two rates :
a) at twice the rate specified in the relevant provision of the Act or
b) at the rate of 5%
Higher rates of TCS 10% instead of 5% will be applicable in the case of any LRS transactions (Foreign Remittance, International Debit Card, and International Pre-Paid Cards).
Example 2: A person has done LRS remittance in FY 2021-22 amounting to INR 4 Lakh. Additionally he used a Debit Card abroad for an international transaction of INR 5 Lakh on 5th July, 2021 and the same day he also used his Pre-Paid Card for another international transaction of INR 2 Lakh. The customer is a non-filer of IT returns as specified u/s 206CCA of the Act.
Calculation of TCS :
Remittance Transaction : INR 4 Lakh
Debit Card and Pre-Paid Card transaction : INR 7 Lakh (INR 5 Lakh + INR 2 Lakh)
Total Amount : INR 11 Lakh
TCS will be applied on INR 11 Lakh minus INR 7 Lakh (Threshold, no TCS will be deducted for international LRS transactions up to INR 7 Lakh in a Financial Year).TCS = INR 4 Lakh @ 10% (twice the existing rate) INR 40,000.00
Permanent Account Number (PAN) of the customer will be checked/ verified from the official India Income Tax website for the applicability of TCS rates. If the customer is a non-filer of Income Tax Return as per the Income Tax website, then a higher rate of TCS shall apply as per section 206CCA of the Act.
