Tax Collected at Source (TCS) under GST refers to the tax collected by an e-commerce operator on behalf of a supplier of goods or services who makes supplies through the operator's online platform.
TCS will be calculated as a percentage of net taxable supplies. Section 52 of the CGST Act deals with TCS claim services for ecommerce provisions under GST.
TCS Claim Services under GST
TCS is payable by certain operators who own, operate, and manage e-commerce platforms.
TCS applies only if the operators collect payment from customers on behalf of vendors or suppliers.
In other words, when e-commerce operators pay the consideration collected to the vendors they have contracted, they complete the transaction.
In other words, when e-commerce operators pay the consideration collected to the vendors, they must deduct TCS and pay the net amount.
Here are a few exceptions to the TCS provisions for e-commerce platform services:
- Hotels and nightclubs
- (unregistered vendors)
- Passenger transport - motor cab, radio taxi, or motorcycle
- Carpentry, Plumbing, and other housekeeping services (unregistered suppliers)
TCS claim services calculation example
If a buyer purchases a car from a showroom that is worth Rs. 11 lakhs, the showroom will deposit Rs. 11,000 as TCS.
As a result, the total amount due from the buyer is Rs.11,11,000
The customer received an invoice for Rs. 12,000, on which 1% TCS was charged and collected at Rs. 120.
As a result, the total amount payable by the customer is Rs. 12,120.
