The Finance Bill, 2021 takes the same recourse by inserting Section 194Q, Section 206AB, and Section 206CCA.
Section 194Q: Earlier Govt. has proposed and implemented 206C(1H) on the sale of goods. Now similar provision is applicable from 01st July 2021, that ’buyer’ being a responsible person for paying any sum to any resident seller for the purchase of goods is liable to deduct TDS @0.1% (if PAN not available then 5%)
Section 206AB & 206CCA: We have already well versed with Section 206AA of the Act which provides for the higher rate of TDS for non-furnishing of PAN. Similarly, section 206CC of the Act provides for the higher rate of TCS for non-furnishing of PAN. Now similar provision has been inserted by Finance Act 2021, w.e.f. 01st July 2021. As per new section 206AB as a special provision for providing a higher rate of TDS and also a new section 206CCA for providing a higher rate of TCS for non-filers of ITRs.
For more details, kindly refer to the below table for quick reference of newly inserted sections:-
|TDS U/s 194Q- TDS on Purchase of Goods
