Withholding tax for sales

Withholding tax or Tax collected at source:

In India tax has to be collected at source (by the seller) from buyer on specific items like alcoholic liquor, tendu leaves, timber, other forest produce, on mining/quarrying & scrap. Withholding tax rate or TCS rate is generally 1% – 5% varying from product to product. We will see below process configuration for TCS on sale of affected products by creating a provision for the same in sales pricing procedure.
