Dear Members/friends
Need help to know that how TDS is calculated?Also my other question is , Does the tds calculation include Services tax Amount mentioned in the invoice/bill?
Thanks regards

TDS is calculated on the gross amount of bill (excluding service tax)
Bill amount Rs 100
Service Tax Rs. 12.36
Total 112.36
Then, if rate of TDS is 10%, then you will deduct TDS on Rs. 100/- @ 10% i.e. Rs. 10
The payment to vendor shall be Rs. (100-10)+12.36 - 102.36
I hope the matter is clear now.

Hi Avika,
Greetings,& Thanks for clarifying my doubt.However When we raise Bill, the amount against services + service tax, Makes my total Bill, In such case
Some of our clients deduct tds on this Bill Amount.That means they include services tax amount also for the deduction.Upon asking they say," the tds will be deducted on total bill amount .And same is mentioned in the bill which also include service tax amount.How do we justify? Pls tell me are they correct.
Also Pls explain me about the tds% deductions applicability.?
Thanks and warm regards

Dear Bijay,
Earlier TDS used to be deducted on Gross Amount of the Bill (Other than Rent), But Now CBDT has issued circular to clarify the issue :
Please Refer Circular No. 1, dated 13.01.2014 :
....... if as per the terms of the agreement between the payer and the payee, the amount of service tax is to be paid separately and was not included in the fees for professional services or technical services, no TDS is required to be made on the service tax component.*
You can refer the circular to your clients in case tax is deducted on Service Tax Part of the invoice.
Thanks & Regards,

*So, While entering into agreement with your vendors, Put a clause that Service Tax would be charged Separately other than Fees or Value agreed.

Dear Sukhwinder sir,
Thanks for clarifying the doubt with supporting circular.
Can you pls explain me the % deduction part of tds.As some clients deduct 1% & some 2%.What is the upper limit of such %.
Appreciate your reply sir.

Dear Bijay,
If this is about Contract like supply of labour etc Rate of TDS would be 1% (if you are not a company) and 2% in case of Company. (Pvt. Ltd. Or Ltd.)
If this is about Professional or Technical Services Rate for all type of Payees would be 10%.
Hope, This would help, still have any doubt. Let us know.
Thanks & Regards,
Sukhvinder S. Bhatia

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your support in learning and sharing knowledge.I am actually not so qualified to understand the legal matters related to finance hence face practical problems when dealing with my clients in the business.Your inputs helps me a lot. Thanks once again.
I have query on service tax exemptions issue.Many of my clients say they will not pay for service tax because they/their business is exempted from the same.For Clarification they show me the notifications under the finance act, in this respect.Considering this should we accept that they are exempted or is it necessary for them to get exemptions for their organisation individually on the basis of the relevant notifications.?
In short - Can we simply consider the general notifications for considering the exemptions for all relevant organisations/business categories mentioned in the notification.
Also what about the exemptions for the companies working in SEZs?

TDS rates for contracts are 2% for direct contractors and 1% for sub contractors. There are some other special rates applicable. Please tell us what services you are providing and to whom
