TDS on Payment to Google Ads/FB for Advertisement
If you are making payment to Google Ads or Facebook for advertisement then you are required to deduct TDS under section 194C of income tax act. You have to first check whether you are falling under section 194C or not.
Now the question arises how one can deduct tax from payment to google ads/facebook when payment is done through credit card or debit card. There is no option at that point to deduct any amount.
The policy of google and facebook ads about TDS is that the payer i.e you have to deposit the TDS amount from your pocket to the government. You then have to submit the TDS certificates to the Google Ads/Facebook and then the amount will be credited back to your ad account.
TDS rate is 2%. No surcharge or education cess is applicable on this.
For eg if You pay Rs. 50,000 for advertisement then you have to pay Rs. 1,000 to the government.
