Section 195 of the Income-tax Act, 1961

Under Section 195 of the Income Tax Act 1961, any individual or entity responsible for making payments to a non-resident, including a foreign company, is mandated to deduct income tax at the applicable rate before executing the payment. In addition to tax deduction, the remitter is required to submit an undertaking in Form 15CA, outlining the particulars of the payment to the non-resident. For payments exceeding INR 5 lakh, a certificate in Form 15CB, duly attested by a chartered accountant, is necessary. This certificate provides comprehensive details about the nature of the payment, the applied tax rate, and the amount of tax deducted. In essence, compliance with Section 195 involves both tax deduction at source and the submission of requisite forms (Form 15CA and Form 15CB), ensuring adherence to the prescribed procedures when making payments to non-residents.

Importance of Form 15CA and Form 15CB

Form 15CA and Form 15CB are necessary forms that must be submitted under the Income Tax Act, 1961, for any payments made by a resident to a non-resident.

In contrast, Form 15CB is a certificate issued by a Chartered Accountant (CA), ensuring that the provisions of the Income Tax Act and the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement have been complied with. Both these forms are essential for ensuring timely and accurate reporting of any payments made to non-residents and for ensuring that taxes are collected on time.

Form 15CA is a mandatory declaration for remittances made to a non-resident by an individual or a company. This form must be submitted online on the income tax department’s website before initiating a remittance to a non-resident. The primary objective of Form 15CA is to facilitate the tracking of foreign remittances by the income tax department, ensuring that the remitter complies with tax payment provisions as outlined in the Income Tax Act.

Form 15CB:

As previously mentioned, Form 15CB is a certificate issued by a Chartered Accountant (CA) under Section 195(6) of the Income Tax Act, 1961, specifically for payments to non-residents or foreign companies. This form is utilized to verify that the payment being made aligns with the stipulations of the Income Tax Act and any existing Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement (DTAA) between India and the respective foreign country.
