Oh Digital India! E-commerce companies will now have to register in every state to collect tax

Brace yourself ecommerce companies. You will now have to register in every damn state where your suppliers are, in order to collect TCS, i.e. tax collected at source (TCS).

E-commerce operators have to obtain separate registration for TCS irrespective of whether they are already registered under GST as a supplier or otherwise and have a GSTIN. The amount collected by the operator has to be paid to the government within 10 days after the end of the month in which the said amount was collected.

From October 1, e-commerce companies will have to deduct 1% TCS before making payments to suppliers.
