 Chief Guest: Smt. Anuradha Bhatia, Chief Commissioner of Income Tax-TDS-Mumbai

Over the years Tax deduction at Source (TDS) has emerged as a major tool of revenue collection in India. The provisions of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (the Act) dealing with the TDS give rise to several interpretational and procedural issues.  Adding to the complexity is a 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 drawn litigation. The 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.  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 is organizing a National Seminar on Tax Deduction at Source to deliberate on various intricate provisions of Tax Deduction at Source (TDS), as per the following schedule:
