Twitter Session – CoinDCX with Vinay Tiwari

As the government had mentioned in the budget session 2022 that there will be 1% TDS applicable on crypto starting July 1, 2022, along with the 30% tax on virtual digital assets, the Head of Finance at CoinDCX, Vinay Tiwari sat with Simplykasif and Meyya to describe the very same for our community. 

Twitter thread recording

To summarise the session:

  • Firstly, what is TDS? TDS stands for Tax Deducted at Source.
  • The 1% TDS in crypto will be applicable to your crypto selling transactions and not on your crypto profits.
  • According to the new Income Tax Law, the concept of TDS was introduced to cut the TDS from the income source itself.
  • The amount deducted as TDS is then remitted to the Central Government’s account by the tax deductor. 
  • To understand the concept better, let us take up a non-crypto example:
Mathematical deductions 

ABC Ltd. to pay Mr. XYZ = ₹ 40,000

TDS = 1%

TDS by ABC Ltd. = 1% of ₹40,000 = ₹400

Net payment done to Mr. XYZ = ₹39,600

Tax credited to govt. account = ₹400

  • Now let us take a crypto example to understand the TDS better.

Suppose Mr. XYZ has bought BTC worth ₹ 40,000. When he goes to sell the BTC, the amount went up to  ₹ 40,500. Thus, the profit is ₹500 and the 1% TDS will be ₹ 45. This ₹ 45 will be deducted from Mr. XYZ when he sells the BTC.

  • You can use the CoinDCX app to download your TDS statement. 
  • Now, since the profit from these transactions has been ₹500, there will be a 30% tax applicable on the profit amount. This amount however will be paid by the investor directly. The 30% tax will not be deducted by the exchange.

Top Questions Asked?

  • Can you clear my doubt? For each and every trade(any value) TDS will calculate and deducted from our trade?

Anytime you sell any crypto, there will be a deduction of 1% TDS from the value. Deposits, withdrawals, or on purchasing of crypto-asset there will not be any TDS applicable.

  • Would be TDS applicable on transferring on other exchanges or wallets? 

No. TDS is only applicable when you are selling any crypto.

Sumit Gupta’s – Twitter 

Now that we have understood what TDS is and when it will be applicable for investors, here’s Sumit Gupta, the CEO, and co-founder of CoinDCX, take on TDS and why it is a decision that needs to be relooked at. 

¼  TDS on CoinDCX

@CoinDCX has implemented the TDS on all products as per government regulations and is fully compliant. But for the sake of the industry and for the government’s own benefit the government needs to rethink this decision

2/4 TDS’s effect on the Government

By imposing 1% TDS on every trade, the government will be losing out on tax revenue

1.00% TDS – 96.88% loss of tax

0.10% TDS – 49.47% loss of tax

0.01% TDS – 1.52% loss of tax

Here’s the excel sheet explaining the calculations

¾ Effect of TDS on Exchanges

With 1% TDS, trading frequency is likely to drop in just 7 months! And volumes are expected to go down in 10 months.

Whereas with 0.01%, we see consistent growth in trading volumes and frequency even after 18 months!

4/4 IS TDS the only Way?

Tracking transactions can be done via different methods. Is TDS really the right solution? Or will it cater towards creating more problems?

Top Questions Asked?

  • And one more thing sir, we should be allowed to set off losses either with other crypto pairs or with other fiscal years? 

Setting off losses is not allowed. However, the 30% Tax will be applied to the profit garnered during every financial year.
