Chief Guest:Shri Devendra Prasad Sharma, Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Pune
 
Over the years Tax deduction at Source (TDS) has emerged as a major tool of revenue collection in India. However, the way the provisions of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (the Act) dealing with the TDS are worded, taxpayers have to deal with several interpretational and procedural issues.  Adding to the complexity is plethora of judicial rulings on these issues. This is a cause of concern both for the taxpayers and Revenue. While the taxpayers grapple with consequential issues of cash flow, disallowances, interest, penalty and long drew litigation. Revenue, apart from litigation, has to deal with administrative issues of refund processing.

In addition, the numerous compliance requirements add significantly to the compliance cost to the business. This is felt particularly in case of cross border payments. In case of non-residents there are further practical difficulties of extra- territorial application of the provisions, compliances and availability of Treaty benefits.
 
Need has been felt to deliberate on key issues on the various provisions and new developments relating to TDS. Therefore, ASSOCHAM with the support of Ministry of Finance is organizing a National Seminar on Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) on 22nd January, 2015 at Pune to deliberate on various intricate provisions of Tax Deduction at Source (TDS). Shri Devendra Prasad Sharma, Principal Commissioner of Income Tax, Pune has already consented to inaugurate the Seminar in Pune.
