FAQs on Tax deducted at Source (TDS) on Dividend

Finance Act 2020 has introduced the new tax regime for taxing the dividend income in the hands of shareholders. Prior to April 01, 2020, dividend distribution was subject to Dividend distribution tax (DDT) in the hands of the company and such dividend income was exempted in the hands of shareholders.

However w.e.f. April 01, 2020, DDT has been abolished and Dividend income is now taxable in the hands of the shareholders, which needs to be deducted by the company at the time of payment of dividend. Taxability of the dividend shall depend upon class of the shareholder(s), quantum of dividend and country of their residence.

The objective of this FAQ is to bring clarity on the possible concerns of the shareholders.

Note: This FAQ shall not be construed as a legal advice and the shareholders should consult their advisors for any further clarity.
