Flag raised in Form 15G or H despite income exceeding exemption

Flag raised in Form 15G or H despite income exceeding exemption
CPC(TDS) feels glad to provide you with the new feature of downloading Form 27D, the Tax Collection Certificate for Deductees forming part of TCS Statements, filed in the form of 27EQ.

Centralized Processing Cell (TDS) has observed from its records that Flag "B" (for 15G/H Forms) has been wrongly raised in the quarterly TDS Statements as per the provisions of section 197A(1B) of the Income Tax Act, 1961. Following are the provisions of section 197A(1B) for your ready reference:

"The provisions of this section shall not apply where the amount of any income of the nature referred to in sub-section (1) or sub-section (1A), as the case may be, or the aggregate of the amounts of such incomes credited or paid or likely to be credited or paid during the previous year in which such income is to be included exceeds the maximum amount which is not chargeable to income-tax".

What is Form 15G/ H and its relevance :
Under section 197A of the Income Tax Act 1961, Form 15G / H is a self-declaration, which is provided by a person resident in India (not being a Company or Firm) to their deductor that the tax on his estimated total income of the previous year, in which such income is to be included in computing his total income, will be NIL.

The Declaration is made in the following Forms :
Form 15H - For Senior Citizens
Form 15G - For other than Senior Citizens
Consequences, if deductor wrongly raises Flag "B" for Forms 15G/H :

If the deductor raises Flag "B" for non-deduction of tax, despite the total payments made by him exceeding the taxable amount, this results into incorrect reporting in the TDS Statements.

Your attention is invited to provisions of section 201 of the Act, which reads as follows :
Where any person who is required to deduct any sum, does not deduct or does not Pay or after deduction, fails to pay,the whole or any part of the tax, then such person shall be deemed to be an assessee in default in respect of such tax.

Under section 277 of the Act, if a person makes a statement in any verification under this Act or under any rule made thereunder, or delivers an account or statement which is false, and which he either knows or believes to be false, or does not believe to be true is punishable.

Invalid PAN of deductee in TDS statements

Invalid PAN of deductee in TDS statements
Centralized Processing Cell (TDS) has observed from its records that you have reported deductees with invalid PANs in your quarterly TDS statements. These PANs appear structurally valid, however, they are actually invalid, as they are not available in the PAN Master records.

For example, ARUPS4625S appears to be a valid PAN according to the alphabets and numerals in its structure, however, this is an invalid PAN, as this is not available in PAN Master.

What is the impact :
The impact of such errors is significant in nature, in view of following :
As per section 206AA, the tax is to be deducted at a higher rate, in case of reporting of invalid PANs. Therefore, Short Deduction is charged even if the tax has been deducted at the Section Rate, due to the applicability of section 206AA.

The deductor will not be able to generate TDS Certificates for their deductees with invalid PANs.

The taxpayer will not be able to avail correct TDS Credits

What actions to be taken :
The impact of such errors is significant in nature, in view of following :
PAN Verification facility on TRACES can be used for verifying the deductees. You are requested to Login to TRACES and navigate to "Dashboard" to locate "PAN Verification" in the Quick Links menu.
You can also use "Consolidated TAN - PAN File" that includes all the valid PANs attached with the respective TANs. Toavail the facility, Login to TRACES and navigate to "Dashboard" to locate "Consolidated TAN - PAN File".

To correct an invalid PAN reported earlier, a C5 Correction Statement is required to be filed.
The PANs can also be corrected using our Online Correction facility with Digital Signatures. To avail the facility, you are requested to Login to TRACES and navigate to "Defaults" tab to locate "Request for Correction" from the drop-down menu. For any assistance, please refer to the e-tutorial available on TRACES.

Power of attorney- When give power to work as your behalf

5:49 PM 0
Power of attorney- When give power to work as your behalf
Ditching someone is the common practice now a days. Shahrukh Khan plays the same role in the film Baazigar when he took revenge of ditching to his father by getting Power of Attorney from the employer. 

These are many cases in real life too.

A PoA is surely an agreement by what type can authorise another individual to use certain tasks with her/ his benefit. It can provide to buy, sell or rent property; carry out financial transactions like operating bank balances, receiving payments, generating investments, etc. Even so, if not executed carefully, it can be misused, and sizzling hot out could be considered a longdrawn court challenge.

A PoA can be executed in the name of family, friends, or real estate and stock agents. Sometimes, promoters of companies practice it in the titles of employees. The individual giving the PoA is called the donor as well as grantor, while the main one to whom it is given is known as the attorney.

The PoA can be between two parties inside same city, distinct cities or distinct countries.

Matters concerning powers of legal professional are regulated because of the Powers of Law firm Act.
Mumbai- based legal professional Rizwan Siddique says the majority of people executing aPoA do not understand it.

“There have been cases when a PoA is inclined to sell property, and the purchaser issues the cheque in preference of the attorney, rather than the property owner, ” this individual says.

“They do not understand that a PoA isn't a transfer involving title document in itself, but only gives limited power to the holder to deal with the property inside name of the donor. Any misuse with the PoA or collection of any money inside personal name with the attorney shall not only make the attorney accountable for criminal prosecution, but also the said transaction should be deemed illegal and invalid, ” this individual says.

Or there tend to be cases where substantial networth individuals provide PoA to brokers to use equity trading with the person. But if the broker trades recklessly next the client could finish up losing a small fortune. So, clients need to regularly keep an eye on their investments and talk with the brokers when they suspect something.

Then there are instances that the person granting the facility revokes it, though the attorney continues to utilize the power, states that Vijay . At instances, an attorney purely signs a doc without attending on the details, which creates problems for your donor.

“Sometimes, an employee might operate the power by contracting on behalf of the employer. Usually, we see realises in newspapers on the effect that a staff has left an organisation along with the employer states he/ she could not ratify the acts with the employee, ” Vijay said.

Types of PoA
You will find two types involving PoA — standard and specific. A general PoA is one that gives an legal professional the authority to accomplish multiple things. As an example, if one will be abroad on a great assignment, one can give a PoA inside name of his/ the woman's father, authorising him to operate a bank bank account, collect rent, etc.

A specific PoA is made for specific purposes and will mention all information on the task to become carried out. As an example, assume you are intending to buy a house along with the deal will fall through if the payment isn’t produced within 20- twenty-five days. In a really case, if you need to go out involving town, you can give a specific PoA to your broker, authorising him/ her to use the transaction for you. This PoA will certainly mention all details for example the property name, the purchase price at which the offer will be transacted, the seller’s name, the period by when the offer will be concluded, the person within whose name the cheques should be issued, etc. Also, one must point out the documents the attorney can sign for you.
Some other conditions which the PoA should essentially include are the time period by when the particular transaction ( that the PoA is being given) should be complete along with the region or geographical area within that your PoA is valid.

“It is better to give a unique PoA to persons apart from family members.

This will ensure it is not misused. Supply a general PoA only when you trust anybody, ” says Rajmohan Krishnan, co- inventor and managing representative, Entrust Family Workplace Investment Advisors.
It is necessary for a person who receives a PoA to maintain a copy of every document she/ he signs within the PoA. This means, one can produce it whenever needed to show he/ she hasn’t violated the terms with the power, says Vijay.

How to register a PoA
A PoA really needs to be executed on press paper. In Maharashtra, Article 48 involving Schedule I on the Maharashtra Stamp Act provides for the stamp duty over a PoA — occasionally, the duty is actually 100; intended for others, it is actually  500. In the event the PoA relates on the sale of immovable property and it is given to someone apart from a close relative ( like broker or afriend), the stamp duty is going to be about five percent of the property’s really worth.

A PoA might be notarised or signed up. If it pertains to immovable property, it must be registered; if it refers to movable property, notarisation will certainly suffice. In like cases, an advocate must identify the man or women giving the PoA.

Also, if a PoA is actually registered, it need to have a witness. Commonly, a witness should be an authorized, not someone relevant to either the grantor as well as the attorney.

Cancelling a new PoA
If a new PoA is notarised, you'll be able to cancel it simply by crossing the deed, akin to cancelling acheque. Even so, if it is actually registered, you have to help revoke the deed and publish advertisements within this regard in a few newspapers (preferably English and regional- language ones) that are circulated in the city that the attorney resides. After this, the deed is actually automatically revoked.

In the event that an attorney misuses a new PoA and causes harm to a grantor, there isn't a other option for your grantor but to move court. Also, the grantor must register the revocation, that'll involve a unique fee.
Sometimes, power is inclined to a sub- use outside agencies for, that is, the attorney can employ another attorney. Even so, in such cases, the donor might lose control and not keep in mind who the power have been sub- delegated to help. Therefore, donors can incorporate a clause saying the attorney must give a copy of every single document signed simply by him/ her on the donor soon following a document has also been signed, says Vijay.

Commonly, a PoA expires each time a donor or legal professional dies. “ In the event the donor dies, the attorney might not be aware of this kind of and might continue to use the PoA. Or maybe, the attorney could continue to use the PoA, despite knowing the donor has passed away, ” Vijay states that.

Legal sanctity
A PoA has legal sanctity, but it may be contested in judge. Nowadays, there are safeguards in the PoA — beyond just the signature, the photograph and thumb impression should be affixed. “But not surprisingly, a person might operate the PoA for incorrect purposes or sell property or an asset for just a lower consideration than he need to, ” says Vijay.

In such a case, the affected get together might move judge against either the PoA or it's use. Someone who loses by virtue of the employment of the power could also contest it. If the PoA is used despite the fact that the donor has revoked it, the donor may contest the validity and utilization of the power.

|Avoid a standard power of legal professional ( PoA) unless it is in the brand of close family member or someone an individual trust |Give a certain PoA with information on what the attorney are capable of doing and what documents she/ he is able to sign for you |Set a validity period for your PoA, after which will probably be automatically revoked |Get PoA signed up

|Though it isn’t obligatory, get the PoA vetted by the lawyer

How to set off losses against other heads income
People do a lot of work and efforts to make profits, but not always, as there is always a chance of losing money in business as well as other transactions.

Income tax is charged on the profits we make, but what about losses? Income tax department provides a mechanism where you can set-off your losses against profits and thus reduce your tax liability.

Assessee can set-off losses against other heads of profits subject to some conditions. There are 5 heads in Income tax where an individual can make profits and income which are as under.
- Salary
- Income from house property
- Business income
- Capital gains
- Income from other sources
The conditions are as under with which you can set-off your losses with other heads gains in income tax.

Capital gains and losses
If a capital asset is sold after three years of purchase, the resultant gain/loss is long term. If sold before three years, it’s a short-term capital gain/loss. Short-term capital loss can be set off against any capital gain — long or short term. However, long-term capital loss can be set off only against a long-term capital gain. Any capital loss after the set-off can be carried forward up to eight financial years. A short-term loss that is carried forward can be set off against any capital gain. But a long-term capital loss that is carried forward can be set off against only long-term capital gains.

Loss incurred on selling equity
Equity and equity-based mutual funds are considered long-term assets when held for at least a year. Any loss you make on the sale of equity stocks bought less than 12 months ago are short-term capital losses and can be adjusted against short-term capital gains as well as long-term gains. Also, the unadjusted losses can be carried forward for up to eight FYs. The loss incurred on selling equity stocks bought more than 12 months ago are long-term capital losses.

Long-term capital loss on listed equities where STT is paid cannot be adjusted because the income is exempt. However, if you sell the shares offline without paying STT, the loss can be adjusted against a long-term capital gain.

Business income
Losses from business/profession can be set off against all income heads other than salary, whereas losses from a speculative activity or owning/maintaining race horses can be set off only against profits under the respective heads. The loss can be carried forward up to eight FYs and set off only against the income from business/profession.

House property
Houses bought or constructed on borrowed money are eligible for deduction of loan interest from the net annual value while calculating the income from house property. The annual value of a self-occupied
House is treated as nil. So, the entire interest paid for it becomes a loss from house property, subject to the R1.5-lakh limit. House property losses can be set off against income from any other head, including salary, in the same financial year. The remaining losses can be carried forward up to eight FYs. In subsequent FYs, such a loss can be set off only against income from house property.

Central excise department issued a circular no. 982/2014 dated 15 May 2014 about classification of rice-par boiling machinery. Full circular is as under.

I am directed to draw your attention to Circular No. 924/14/2010-CX dated 19.05.2010 on the subject of classification of rice par-boiling machinery under the Central Excise tariff.  References have been received from trade and field to re-examine the circular consequent to the judgement of the Hon’ble Tribunal in case of M/s Jyoti Sales Corporation [2011(272) E.L.T. 689 (Tri – Del) & 2011 - TIOL – 1498 – CESTAT-DEL].  The circular has since been re-examined.

2.         The classification of rice par-boiling machinery would be guided by Note 2 to Chapter 84 read with Note 3 to Section XVI.  The par-boiling machine and dryer are self-contained machines which are designed to be installed independently and which perform their respective functions independently.  Therefore, though they may be installed in a rice mill to work in conjunction with the milling machinery, the par-boiling machine and dryer do not appear to satisfy the requirements of Section Note 3 to be called composite machines/multi-function machines meriting classification under CETH 8437.  Further, par-boiling machinery does not constitute grain dampening machine as the end result of par-boiling of rice is reduction in the moisture of paddy.   In view of the above, rice par-boiling machine and dryer would merit classification under CETH 8419 as per Note 2 to Chapter 84.

3.         Circular No. 924/14/2010-CX dated 19.5.2010 is rescinded and it is directed that classification of rice par-boiling machine and dryer may be made under CETH 8419.  Necessary action to protect the revenue interest in respect of past clearances may also be taken.

ITR 2: For individuals or Hindu Undivided Families (HUF) with income from all heads applicable to ITR 1; house property (more than one); income from capital gains; income from other sources; and those who own foreign assets.

ITR 3: For an HUF or individual, who fulfils the criteria for ITR 2 and also is a partner in a firm, but does not carry on a proprietary business or profession.

ITR4: For individuals with income from business or profession.

ITR4S: For individuals with income from presumptive business.

 Give correct personal details
Each year, a large number regarding returns are rejected regarding incorrect personal details. The ITR form requires both your physical along with email address. Ensure a valid and functional email ID is provided inside form. If you are remaining in a rental accommodation or a hostel, avoid mentioning that address for the form. Instead, mention your current permanent address, even if it’s in a smaller town.

If you miss typing in one number or character of one's permanent account number (PAN), the contour cannot be processed. Apart from, you could be levied an excellent of R10, 000 a great incorrect PAN entry, much like income-tax rules. Similarly, you need to be careful about TAN of one's employer, which you will see in your Form 07. If you are expecting a refund, you must mention your bank’s family savings number and the nine-digit MICR variety. Ensure you fill this info correctly or your refund may get delayed unnecessarily.

Include many income
There are certain incomes which might be left out erroneously including income from other resources. Even though long-term money gains and dividends through equity mutual funds and listed securities will not be taxable, they form an element of your income from other sources and it is advisable to give details about these inside form. While only short-term results are taxable for value mutual funds, both short- in addition to long-term gains from debts funds are taxable.

Numerous Form 16s
If you’ve altered jobs in the middle of the financial year, ensure that you just collect Form 16s from both the employers. Many make the error of reporting only the existing employer’s income in their own returns. Since you’ve availed tax benefits from both employers, there could be a superb possibility that you still have additional tax liability during the time of filing returns.

TDS information for interest income
As all banks deduct duty at source for interest accrued on your fixed deposit accounts, it doesn’t mean you won’t assess your duty liability and mention it with your form. In reality, banking companies only deduct 10% duty on interest income, whereas you might be in the higher duty slab of 20% or 30%. Recently, the income-tax department has started reconciliation of TDS facts received from banks along with the interest income reported by individuals within their returns. So, if you don’t give information regarding interest income in your return form, there is a chance that you may receive a notice through tax department. The portal will consider Form 16A details you’ve added and compute the info.

India soon have Single window system to pay all the bills

India soon have Single window system to pay all the bills
Do you think you're still paying your bills the older way? Still writing cheques along with having these delivered to your biller with regard to clearance? Or standing up in long lines and making income payments? All that will change soon. In the event the new system associated with bill payment mooted with the Reserve Bank associated with India ( RBI) moves on stream, users are able to pay bills – of kinds – with the click of the button or anyplace through other third- celebration vendors.

RBI is along the way of setting way up an Indian Expenses Payment System, a centralised check gateway to make a myriad of bill payments clean. The payments process will be instituted through the GIRO ( govt internal revenue order)based process, where all the billers for example utility payments, income taxes, university fees, examination fees and premiums, among others, come on a common platform that will enable payers to make payments directly for you to billers.

Bill payers routinely have to make a number of bill payments by simply either setting personal online accounts on billers website, making use of cards, visiting charging companies or dropping cheques, which could be cumbersome and time- ingesting. Besides, billers have to setup multiple options for accepting a myriad of payment methods. This makes the item difficult to track bills that usually are paid, both for your billers and this payers.

A committee build by RBI termed the GIRO Advisory Party has given an investigation which proposes to setup two organisations — this Bharat Bill Payment Services plus the Bharat Bill Check Operating Units.
Affirms Pramod Saxena, inventor and managing director, Oxigen Services, the payment solutions corporation: “The new entity can have connectivity to all billers by using a single standardised podium. We don’t must use multiple interfaces. This may increase bill installments online and allow it to become real time, an incredibly small amount right now. ” This entails setting up a centralised national infrastructure, by bringing all the billers and banks on the new bill podium. This new organisation will be created on the lines with the National Payments Firm of India, which usually handles inter- bank transfers.

The new centralised charges system allows all bills to be listed at just one location, where you can go and pay. This is an element of the ongoing effort with the central bank to further improve the payment along with settlement systems as laid out in the Check Systems Vision ( 2012- 15).

RBI wants to develop this system because a great deal of bills are paid through cash or maybe cheques at billers’ locations, while bill payment centres usually are not easily available throughout rural areas. There is also no single web site where all bills could be accessed and paid.

How it may help
At the instant, to pay your bills, you must visit multiple vendors for example insurance or phone companies and a number of agencies. In the revolutionary system, people will gain access to all utilities and all the bill payment managing units. You can make payments to any or all utilities and education institutions around the world through a sole platform.

Paying online on individual billers’ sites is tedious — you will need to remember the website addresses and different passwords. Besides, there is also to provide your money or credit greeting card details to a number of billers, which raise your risk on the internet. In the fresh bill pay support, you can pay your complete bills with just one user name then one password.

Some banks have tied up with individual payment payment gateways and pay many distinct billers through your own personal bank account. Facilities for example Bill Pay, include listed various billers. However, most of these kinds of billers are often telephone, insurance or maybe utility companies. Educational institutions, universities, preservation bills, school service fees, and subscriptions are not an element of the system, especially where charges are paid annually or so.

Paperless along with hassle- free
Further, banks bill with regard to such payment features. Fees vary concerning banks, depending on the number of billers, which could range from a fixed regular fee to adjustable fees.

One mode associated with payments banks encourage is setting up of an electronic clearance system or maybe ECS, where the biller directly debits your money of the costs towards your payment.

Says Saxena: “ Regarding payments of charges in Delhi, you've got only in 2030 outlets. A lot associated with service points can open which have been serviced by us all, accepting cash to bill payments.

One can also pay charges across cities. And also, many other unique variations of billers can arrive online as this system progresses. The majority of the bill installments happen in income, and you can bring all of these into this fresh system. ” The brand new system will also assist you to and the billers to maintain things electronically protected and essentially lessen hassles. While the fact that consumer will be charged is not known, more plus much more types of payments may very well be added. It will likely help keep a brief history of your installments to various billers and tabulate your payments for future reference. Your credit along with payments history will be easily available to you, while it will lessen your paperwork.
