Guys, TDS means "Tax Deducted at Source", Upwork here is the source for all work we do on the plateform so as GOI mandate they must withhold whatever percentage Govt. decides and follow procedures so it gets reflected on our accounts!

 

I just hope they are not having any troubles with IT department, as they mostly collect in USD so how is it going to reflect in ones account and what currency conversation rates will apply and whatnot, if I understand it right!!

 

Hope this gets done quickly, we all are in edge right now!

  1. Why can't Upwork pay this within the big fat 20% or 10% they are earning from us?
  2. Is there any clarification on how the Upwork earnings come under foreign e-commerce operators? I mean it makes sense for purchasing connects, purchasing membership etc. How exactly is working for a client an e-commerce transaction?

Nitin in my opinion you are right. The TDS should not be applicable for freelancers. We are earning forign exchanges. The new tax rule is applicable for transations where one pays to foriegn e-commerce companies in Indian rupee which is converted to foreign currency. This is applicable for any purchases eg from amazon.us or google us and similar.

 

Upwork needs to look into it in more detail and take more consultation.

 

Here is more details from bloomberg https://prnt.sc/uhu8o7
