What is the due date for payment of GST TDS?

The due date for the payment of TDS is the 10th day of the next month in form GSTR-7. 

For instance, if the ‘X’ department of the Central Government deducts TDS @2% from ‘Y’ on 3 November 2022, then it has to make payment by 10 December 2022.

When GST TDS is required to be deducted?

TDS @ 2% (1% CGST+1% SGST or 2% IGST) is deductible from payments to suppliers of taxable goods or services if the value of such supply under a contract exceeds Rs. 2.5 lakh rupees.

The Rs. 2.5 lakh limit applies to a single contract, not the total value in a month or year. So an individual supply can be less than Rs. 2,50,000/- but if the contract amount exceeds Rs. 2,50,000/-, TDS must be deducted.

The following shall be excluded from the calculation of the contract value:

  • Central GST
  • State GST
  • Union Territory GST
  • Integrated GST
  • Cess

How is TDS calculated on GST?

For a better understanding of TDS provisions, consider the following example.

The selling price of 10 Tablet @ Rs. 10,000/- per tablet (Taxable Value)- Rs. 1,00,000

If the rate of tax (CGST) on the Tablet is 28%

CGST @ 14% – Rs. 14,000

SGST @ 14 % – Rs. 14,000

Total Invoice Value – Rs. 1,28,000


TDS deduction will be

TDS calculated on taxable value = Rs. 1,00,000/-

TDS rate in GST = 1% of (CGST) and 1% of (SGST)

Calculation made excluding the tax amount (Rs. 1,28,000 – Rs. 28,000)

In the given example, the TDS calculation will be

Rs. 1,00,000 x 1 % = Rs. 1,000 (CGST)

Rs. 1,00,000 x 1%. = Rs. 1,000 (SGST)
