Can I calculate TCS on purchases? or How to handle TCS in Purchases?


Tax Collection at Source is collected by the seller from the buyer of the goods. As per Income Tax Act 1961 it is mandatory on the part of the buyer to pay a predetermined value of TCS to the seller, while purchasing a particular commodity.

In case of purchases, TCS will become a part of his purchase expense and the same need to be paid to the seller. Hence in Buyer books TCS can be grouped under Expense / any group as required, since the same is not eligible for set off.

To claim the Refund for TCS on purchases (similar to refund on TDS), a TCS Receivable Ledger, grouped under Current Assets can be created and used for recording purchase transactions, and the TCS amount can be entered manually. Once Refund of TCS is received from the Department, the same can be reversed.



Can a TCS Certificate number be generated automatically?


TCS Certificate number cannot be automatically generated since,  TCS certificate is a report and not a record.


I am unable to change the TCS rates during a voucher entry, even though the option ' allow TCS alteration in vouchers' has been set to YES. Why?


The option ‘Allow Alteration of TCS Rates’ available at F12 Configuration in voucher entry is only for modifying the ‘Lower Collection application’. 

At the ledger creation screen (while creating the supplier’s a/c) enable the option ‘Is Lower/No Collection Applicable?’. This would allow you to modify TCS for lower Collection. Please note that the statutory figures of TCS cannot be modified.



Form 27D is blank. Please suggest a solution.


Please follow the entry procedure, select the appropriate TCS ledger and then take a print out of Form 27D.

For example:


1.     Book the Sales with full amount (Sales Voucher) including TCS to be collected.

2.     Use TCS Helper (Alt+S) for TCS payment entry.

3.     Reconcile the TCS Account

4.     Print Form 27D. While printing the Form, select the appropriate TCS ledger, Date (From & To) and the Challan Till Date
