How it works🔗

  2. When you upload an invoice and select the vendor, the TDS component is auto-calculated according to the TDS rate selected for the vendor.
  3. When you make a vendor payment, the TDS amount is recorded against the relevant category. The TDS amount is NOT deducted from your account balance at this stage.
  4. TDS payment for the previous month will be paid automatically on the 4th of every month. The TDS amount is deducted from your account balance at this stage.
  5. Once the TDS is successfully paid, the challan is available for download on the Dashboard.
  6. You can download the challan and file the TDS as per your convenience.

Mark As Paid🔗

There is a possibility that you paid TDS using some other method. In such cases, you can mark a TDS payment as paid from the RazorpayX Dashboard.

Note:

  • You can only mark a TDS payment as paid after the 1st of the following month.
  • Late fees, if any, will have to be paid by you.
