With Budget 2020, major amendments made with regard to TDS are as under:
1. Amendment has been made in section 194A, 194C, 194H, 194I and 194J wherein now the individual/ HUf whose turnover from business exceeds Rs. 1 crore and from profession exceeds Rs. 50 lakh would be liable to deduct TDS. Earlier also limit was the same, however since it was derived from section 44AB and now there are 2 limits u/s 44AB (1) and therefore Income tax department has made it direct based on turnover rather than deriving it from another section.
2. Now TDS would be deducted u/s 194 on dividend received for equity shares which was earlier covered under DDT. Such TDS shall be deducted at 10% if the amount of dividend exceeds Rs. 5,000.
3. Also u/s 194A now a co-operative society would deduct TDS if it’s turnover exceeds Rs. 50 crore in previous year and the amount being paid to payee exceeds Rs. 50,000 in case of senior citizen and Rs. 40,000 in any other case.
4. Under section 194J TDS shall be deducted at 2% for technical services and for royalty in the nature of consideration for sale, distribution or exhibition of cinematographic films.
