Postponement of provision relating to TDS (Section 51) and TCS ( Section
52) of the CGST / SGST Act 2017
With the objective of ensuring smooth rollout of GST and taking into
account the feedback received from the trade and industry regarding the
provisions of deduction of tax at Source under Section 51 of the CGST / SGST
Act 2017 and collection of tax at source under Section 52 of the CGST / SGST
Act 2017, the following has been decided :-
1. The provisions of Tax Deduction at Source (Section 51 of the CGST /
SGST Act 2017) and Tax Collection at Source (Section 52 of the CGST/SGST Act,
2017) will be brought into force from a date which will be communicated later.
2. Persons who will be liable to deduct or collect tax at source will be
required to take registration, but the liability to deduct or collect tax will
arise from the date the respective sections are brought in force.
3. The persons who were liable to be registered under clause (ix) of
Section 24 of the CGST / SGST Act, 2017 (as they were supplying goods or
services through electronic commerce operator who is required to collect tax at
source under Section 52) will not be liable to register till the provision of
Tax Collection at Source is brought under force. In other words, persons
supplying goods or services through electronic commerce operator liable to
collect tax at source would not be required to obtain registration immediately,
unless they are so liable under Section 22 or any other category specified
under Section 24 of the CGST / SGST Act, 2017 .
This step has been taken to provide more time for persons liable to deduct
tax at source / E-Commerce Companies and their suppliers to prepare for the
historic tax reform.
