Now, you all know who is responsible to deduct TDS and on which payment they are liable to deduct TDS in our previous articles. But now it is the primary duty of the deducter to deposit TDS to the government account on behalf of deductee/payee. So deductees can claim it on their income tax returns.

Time to Deduct TDS

It should be done at the time of credit to the payee’s account or payment thereof, whichever is earlier.

Tax is to be deducted at source at the time of credit to the payee’s account or on accrual of the payment at the end of the accounting year or at the time of payment in cash or by cheque or draft or any other mode, whichever is earlier.

TDS should be deposited into the Govt. account within the prescribed time along with Challan No.281 or e-payment of TDS through NSDL website.

E-payment of TDS is mandatory for those who are required to get their accounts audited u/s 44AB and all companies. The E-payment can be made by internet  banking, debit card or credit card. See how to pay income tax online?
