It is general view that there is no change in tds rates w.e.f. 01.10.09. Only threshold limit has been changed. But special attraction is required to those who are making advertising payment as deductor. As earlier post or the TDS table given as below, It can be observed that deduction of tds under section 194C has been changed specifically in case of Payment to Advertiser. As per old practice, deductor is deducting 1% tds while making payment to Advertiser. Now criteria has been changed. It depends upon his Pan Status. If it relates to Individual/H.U.F. than TDS will be deducted 1% (same as earlier) , If advertisers gives Pan Number of his firm/company/trust etc., TDS will be deducted 2%( prior to 01.10.2009, it was 1%).
Status of Pan (Permanent Account Number)
Now, deductor has a question that how can he know that a PAN supplied by deductee relates to Individual/H.U.F. or not ?. It is easy to everyone to find out that It depends upon fourth character of the PAN digits. In case P or H. Pan relates to Individual/H.U.F. and in other case it do no relates to Individual/H.U.F.
PAN NUMBER = AAAPA2273P (This pan number relates to Individual due to "P" as fourth character in Pan)
