GST with TDS Accounting

Accounts and Finance
Accounts with Taxes

Here we will learn how to deduct TDS if we get a bill of a party(vendor) with GST and what will be the entries in this case

Sometimes we get a bill of Party with GST

We need to deduct TDS on this bill

Should we deduct TDS on Base Value (Amt before GST) or Total (Amt including GST)

As per CBDT Circular

We need to Deduct TDS on Base Value (Amt before GST) in this case

Explanation

As we know GST is Added in to the amount and TDS is deducted from Bill

So first we add GST in Amount to arrive at total amount

Then from this Total amount we deduct TDS to arrive at Net Amount

However TDS is deducted on Taxable Value (amount before GST) and Not Invoice Value (Amt Including GST)

Deducting TDS on Total amount would mean deducting Tax on Tax. hence it would lead to double taxation

Example

Supposed Bill of Advertising is of 100000=18% GST = 118000 Total

Here 100000 is Taxable Value and 118000 is Invoice Value

TDS Rate is 10%

We need to Deduct TDS on @10% of 100000 = 10000

We need to pay to the Party balance amount of 118000 - 10000 = 108000

This tax deduction is same in case we get Input Tax Credit of this GST or not

Example 1, No TDS

Suppose Bill Received on 10 June From

Max Ltd

 Particular Amount Consultancy Charges 100000 Add Cgst 9% 9000 Sgst 9% 9000 Total 118000

Example 2, GST with TDS

Suppose in Example 1, TDS @ 10% is also applicable under 194J

Pass entry

In both cases,TDS will be deducted @ 10% on 100000=10000

Example 3, No TDS

The Company entered into connect with Max Ltd on 25 April for 100,000+ GST 18%

Whole amount paid in advance on that date to Max Ltd

Bill Received on 10th June from Max for Consultancy Service

Pass Entries assuming no TDS

There can be 2 Cases

Our Company is taking Input of GST (We are Service Providers registered in GST)

Our Company is not taking Input of GST tax as we are not registered in GST

Entry is different in both cases as shown below

Example 4 with Tds

Pass Entry in Example 3 assuming TDS is applicable

Entry is different in both cases as shown below

Example 5 No TDS

The Company entered into connect with Max Ltd on 25 April for 100,000+ GST 18%

20% paid in advance on that date to Max Ltd

Bill Received on 10th June from Max for Consultancy Service

Balance 80% Paid on 28 October

Example 6 With Tds

Entry is different in both cases as shown below
