Supplier TDS Rate in Bangladesh
Supplier TDS Rate in Bangladesh

TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) is a form of advance tax paid by the taxpayer when making certain payments such as salaries, commissions, rent, fees for professional or technical services, etc.

The TDS rate for suppliers in Bangladesh is not fixed; relatively, it varies based on the nature of payment and the supplier’s status. For example, suppose a residential supplier is paid for rendering professional services.

In that case, the applicable TDS rate will be 5%, and if the supplier is a nonresident, the TDS rate for the payment will be 20% higher.

In Bangladesh, TDS is governed by the Income Tax Ordinance of 1984. Today we will explore TDS and its rate broadly in the discussion.

Supplier TDS in Bangladesh

Payers and suppliers have specific responsibilities to comply with TDS regulations in Bangladesh. The payer must correctly deduct the TDS and submit it to the government within the specified time frame.

Meanwhile, the supplier must provide the necessary documents and information to the supplier to facilitate the TDS process. Under the Income Tax Ordinance, certain payments are subject to TDS in Bangladesh. The following are some of the common types of payments subject to TDS:

  • Salaries and wages
  • Rent paid on land and buildings
  • Interest paid on deposits and securities
  • Commission and brokerage
  • Royalty and technical fees
  • Payment to contractors for works contracts

The person making the payment is responsible for deducting TDS and depositing it with the government within a specified time. Failure to deduct TDS or to deposit the deducted amount with the government can result in penalties and legal action.

TDS is an essential mechanism for the government to collect advance tax and ensure compliance with tax laws. Businesses and individuals must understand the TDS provisions and comply with the relevant rules and regulations to avoid penalties or legal consequences.

Tax Deduction From Salary In Bangladesh

Tax deduction from salary in Bangladesh is generally related to Tax Deducted at Source( TDS) or Pay As You Earn( PAYE). Employers must deduct TDS from their workers’ salaries and submit it monthly to the National Board of Revenue( NBR).

The quantity of TDS deducted from an employee’s salary depends on the employee’s gross salary, tax-free allowances, and prevailing tax rate. NBR issues a tax arbor every time, which gives an idea of different duty rates applicable for different income situations.

The employer issues a pay slip to the hand showing the quantum of TDS subtracted from the employee’s payment. Workers can file their income tax responses with NBR using that pay slip.
