Tax Alert TDS of Oct , deposit during Diwali days


Dear all
Next month first week will be largely Holidays, Due to Diwali , Bhai Duj, Vishwakarma Puja, Chat Puja and other festivals across the Country.

And last date of TDS and TCS deposit remains 7th of next month. And the interest and penalty for non payment also remains the same.

So, do plan in advance.

Question is how you will estimate the TDS when staff will be on leave… and bills will not be passed ?

Taking an estimate based on past averages can be a good solution

This can be a method ( as per excel file attached)…that. you might try…

Do remember, the TDS return goes for October-Nov-December together in Jan 2022,

so, if you find a variation, that little bit can be deposited later also
but you are saved on other larger risk of non payment and its complications

We all know that GSTR2A reconciliation is very important.

And if the vendor’s Invoice does not reflect properly in Customer’s GSTR2A, then, the customer will not be able to get the GST ITC Credit on the same.

Now, How to protect yourself in this situation ?

How to make the customer aware ? and How to “stop loss” from future claims ?
