No More TDS On 14 Service Sectors In IFSC From April 1  

| Updated: March 9, 2024 12:34

In a move to reduce tax compliance burden, the government has exempted payments including referral fee and brokerage income made to units of 14 service sectors in International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) from TDS provisions. 

The notification will come into force from April 1, 2024, and relaxations provided therein shall be applicable for 10 consecutive assessment years. Further, the payer will also be required to furnish the particulars of all such payments in the TDS statement. 
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said that no TDS will have to be deducted for payments to units in sectors like fintech, banking, fund management entity, finance company, credit rating agency, insurance intermediary and investment banking. 

The TDS exemption will now be applicable on payments like professional/referral fee, brokerage income, interest on external commercial borrowings, loans, insurance commission, dividend and credit rating fee. 

International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) in GIFT City is being developed as a tax-neutral enclave for the financial sector. 
Previously, exemptions from withholding tax were limited to payments associated with leasing of ships, leasing of aircraft among others. However, the recent notification broadens the scope, encompassing various payments such as interest on ECBs, professional fees, referral fees, dividend income to finance companies, banking units, etc, established in IFSC. 
The notification by the CBDT offers a significant relief by exempting specified payments made to the units in IFSC from TDS, said Nangia & Co LLP Partner Amit Agarwal. 
“From an M&A perspective, the inclusion of payments like investment advisory fees and professional fees to Investment Advisors and Fund Management entities respectively, enhances the appeal of establishing fund structures in IFSC,” Agarwal said. 
The process laid down includes the furnishing of Form No. 1 by an IFSC unit to the payer following which the payer shall not deduct the TDS.
