Section 194Q was inserted by the Act No. 13 of 2021, w.e.f. 1-7-2021 which says to deduct TDS on purchase of goods subject to certain conditions fulfilment.


Can you please let us know when will it be introduced by Intuit, Quickbooks?

Hi there, @Mehta S. I'd be pleased to outline the steps below so you can use TDS in your QuickBooks Online (QBO).


To begin, here's how:


  1. Go to Expenses.
  2. Select Suppliers at the top.
  3. Select the supplier name for whom you want to enable TDS and select Edit.
  4. In the supplier information pop-up, enter the PAN number and select the TDS Applicable checkbox.
  5. Once you select the TDS Applicable checkbox, you'll have the option to select Entity Type and default TDS section applicable to the supplier. Please select relevant options. TDS will be calculated for the supplier according to the threshold prescribed under the selected section during entry of a Bill or Expense. However, if you want to override the threshold and enter the TDS amount manually, please select the checkbox, which reads Override Calculation Threshold.
  6. Select Save.


Once TDS is enabled for a particular supplier, you can create invoice for that supplier and you'll get the option to select TDS section and enter the TDS amount applicable in that invoice or other sales form.

We are not looking for generic answers.

Please understand there is still no option of 194Q-TDS in your software. 


It should not take 2 years for development team to introduce make a change on TDS list of categories.


Can you please add our request to support/agile?





I understand that having the 194Q-TDS option would be advantageous to your business, Mehta S.
