TCS in TallyPrime

TCS (Tax Collected at Source) is the tax that a seller collects from the buyer during the sale of specific goods under provision 206C, or any other goods on the basis of realisation. TallyPrime not only supports the latest budget changes for TCS but also provides you with a comprehensive TCS solution for your business needs. You now have the flexibility to calculate TCS either after receiving the payment or during billing.

If you are a seller of goods such as timber wood, tendu leaves, scrap, and so on, then you have to collect TCS at the time of sale. However, as per the latest budget changes, TCS will be charged for other goods as well when the value of sales or receipt crosses Rs 50 lakhs for a particular party. This is applicable only for sellers whose annual income has exceeded Rs 10 crore in the previous financial year. TallyPrime provides you with the option to track the threshold limit for a party. TCS will be automatically calculated when the sales exceeds the threshold limit (Rs 50 lakhs, for instance) for the party across transactions.

You now have the choice to calculate TCS on either realisation/receipt of the invoice value or directly in the invoice (accrual method), depending on your business practice. If you choose accrual, then you will collect TCS while billing the customers. If you choose realisation, then you will collect TCS on receipt of the invoice value. TallyPrime provides you with the flexibility to apply either method of calculation as per the Nature of Goods. Once you have selected the basis of calculation, it will be applied to all your transactions under that particular Nature of Goods. For instance, you can set TCS calculation on accrual for the sale of goods such as luxury cars or timber wood, and on realisation for any other goods. Accordingly, TallyPrime will keep aggregating the values for each party across transactions and calculate TCS once the aggregate amount crosses the threshold limit for a party.

Apart from recording transactions based on realisation and accrual, you can also calculate TCS on advance receipt and record TCS-exempt transactions for government-listed buyers and buyers deducting TDS. You can view and track the status of your TCS-related transactions in Form 27EQ in TallyPrime, and identify any incomplete information or mismatch in details. Once you verify the details, you can export the details as a text file and proceed for filing TCS returns.

What’s more, with TallyPrime you can easily configure TCS in either the stock items or in the sales ledger, which will help you calculate TCS with great ease and accuracy. If you have hundreds or thousands of stock items, then you don’t have to configure TCS for each stock item. You can just configure TCS in the sales ledger, and the TCS amount will be calculated in the transaction. For some reason, if you do not want to calculate TCS in the transaction, then you can set TCS to Not applicable in the stock items or sales ledger.

Calculate TCS on Realisation

TallyPrime provides you with the choice to calculate TCS on either realisation of the invoice value or directly in the invoice, depending on your business practice. If you choose realisation, then you will collect TCS after receiving the payment from the buyer. You can apply the realisation method of calculation in the relevant Nature of Goods, and it will be applied to all your transactions under that particular Nature of Goods. TallyPrime will aggregate the values for each party across transactions and calculate TCS once the aggregate amount crosses the threshold limit for a party.

Set up tax calculation and threshold limit
  1. Press Alt+G (GoTo) > Create Master/Alter Master > TCS Nature of Goods, and select the relevant Nature of Goods.
  2. Enter relevant details such as the name of the Nature of Goods, Section, Payment code, Threshold/exemption limit, and applicable TCS rates.
    Note: You can set TCS rates for different time periods by pressing Ctrl+I (More Details) > TCS Details (History).
  3. Configure the following options:
    1. Tax calculation based on realisation – Set this option to Yes to calculate TCS on realisation in the transactions involving this Nature of Goods.
    2. Calculate tax on value exceeding Exemption Limit – Set this option to Yes to calculate TCS on the amount exceeding the threshold limit, as recommended by the latest department rules. If you set this option to No, then TCS will be calculated from Rupee 1.
      Illustration: Let us consider the Threshold/Exemption Limit as Rs 50 lakhs. Now if the value of sales is Rupees 57 lakhs, then the Taxable Value will be Rs 7 lakhs if this option is set to Yes. However, if this option is set to No, then the entire amount of Rs 57 lakhs will be taxable.

    You can see that that TCS was calculated on the Amount exceeding the overall threshold limit. The total amount for TCS consideration is Rs 60,00,000 (Rs 35,00,000 + Rs 25,00,000), which exceeds the threshold limit by Rs 10,00,000. Thereby, TCS will amount to Rs 1,000 (at 0.1%).

Calculate TCS on Accrual

If you choose the accrual method of calculation, then you will collect TCS while billing the customers. TallyPrime provides you with the option to configure the accrual method for the relevant Nature of Goods. Once you have selected the accrual method, it will be applied to all your transactions under that particular Nature of Goods.

Override the Method of Calculation from Realisation to Accrual

You may have set the method of calculation as realisation in the Nature of Goods, but for a particular party you may want to override this calculation to accrual.

Calculate TCS on Advance Receipt

When a buyer makes an advance payment for future sales, then TCS has to be charged on the advance amount. Accordingly, you can use TallyPrime to issue a receipt voucher to the buyer by charging TCS on the advance amount. TCS will be applied once the receipt amount crosses the threshold limit.

    You can see that TCS was calculated on the Amount exceeding the overall threshold limit. The total amount for TCS consideration is Rs 75,00,000, which exceeds the threshold limit by Rs 25,00,000. Thereby, TCS will amount to Rs 2500 (at 0.1%).

TCS Exemption for Buyers Deducting TDS

If your business has buyers who deduct TDS while making payments, then you don’t have to collect TCS from such buyers. TallyPrime provides you with the flexibility to set the exemption for such buyers during the transaction. If you are calculating TCS on accrual, then record a sales voucher for this transaction.
