Handy Tips
The TDS rates are subject to change as per government guidelines. Refer to the income tax website for the latest TDS updates.

TDS Calculation🔗

TDS is calculated on the invoice subtotal, that is, the invoice amount without GST, Cess and other taxes. Unpaid transactions are not taken into account while calculating TDS.

Watch Out!
RazorpayX Tax Payments follows Cashflow Accounting where the TDS is paid based on the date of payment instead of the invoice. For example, if the invoice dates 8th October 2021 and the payment dates 8th November 2021 then the TDS will be paid on 7th December 2021.

Handy Tips
As per the government norms, the TDS rates are reduced by 25% till the end of FY21.

Let us say TDS for a vendor is set to 7.5%.

CopySubtotal (Amount without GST, Cess and other taxes.) = ₹5,000 TDS = ₹5,000 x 7.5% TDS = ₹375
