     points raised by issue of a circular in the form of questions and answers as follows:

Question 4: Whether TCS is applicable on each sale of motor vehicle or on aggregate value
of sale during the year?

Answer:    Tax is to be collected at source at the rate of 1% on sale consideration of a motor
vehicle exceeding ten lakh rupees. It is applicable to each sale and not to aggregate value of
sale made during the year. This can be explained by way of an illustration:

Ill ustration: Motor vehicle worth 20 lakh is sold and for which payments arc made in
instalments, one at the time of booking and the other at the time of delivery. At the time of
booking 5 lakh rupees are paid and 15 lakh rupees are paid at the time of delivery. Tax at the
rate of 1% on 5 lakh rupees at the time of booking and at the rate of I % on remaining 15
lakh rupees at the time of delive ry shall be collected at source.

Similar will be the position with regard to collection of tax at source under sub-section (1 D)
of section 206C.

Question 5: whether TCS at the rate of 1% on sale of motor vehicle is applicab le in case of
an individual?

Answer:     The definition of "Seller" as given in clause (c ) of the Explanation below sub-
section (II) of section 206C shall be applicable in the case of sale of motor vehicles also
Accordingly, an individual who is liable to audit as per the provisions of section 44AB of the
Act during the financial year immediately preceding the financial year in which the motor
vehicle is sold shall be liable for collection of tax at source on sale of motor vehicle by him.

Question 6: I-low would the provisions of TCS on sale of motor vehicle be applicable in a
case where part of the payment is made in cash and part is made by cheque?

Answer: The provisions of TCS on sale of motor vehicle exceeding ten lakh rupees is not
dependent on mode of payment. Any sale of Motor Vehicle exceeding ten lakh would attract
TCS at the rate of 1%.




Question 7: As per sectio n 206C(1 D) , tax is to be collected at source at the rate of 1% if
sale consideration received in cash exceeds 2 lakh rupees whereas as per section 206C(lF)
tax is to be collected a1 source at the rate of I % of the sale consideration of a motor vehicle
exceeding 10 lakh rupees. Whether TCS will be made under both sub-section( lD) and (IF)
of the section 206C @ 2% ,wherepartofthepayment for purchase of motor vehicle exceeds
2 lakh rupees in cash?

f.nswcr: Sub-section (1 F) of the section 206e of the Act provides for TeS at the rate of 1%
on sale of motor vehicle of value exceeding 10 lakh rupees. This is irrespective of the mode
of payment. Thus if the value cfmotor vehicle is 20 lakh rupees , out of which 51akh rupees
has been paid in cash and balance amount by way of cheque, the tax shall be collected at
source at the rate of 1% on total sale consideration of 20 lakh rupees only under sub-section
( I F) of section 206e of the Act. However, if a vehicle is so ld for 8 lakh rupees and the
consideration is paid in cash, tax shall be collected at source at the rate of I % on 8 lakh
rupees as per sub-section(l D) of section 206e of the Act.
