Please find below my clarification for your query
I'm talking about the entire payment paid by me as a client to upwork.
For example, if I hire a freelancer for 100$+ 3$ (Processing Fee) = 103$. I'm referring to this entire 103$. I've been advised to deduct TDS on the same.
I apologize for the delay in following up on your question. Please note that we'll definitely update this thread once we receive more information regarding the specific process you asked about. Thank you.
Hi, I'm an Indian client and have recently hired an Indian freelancer via upwork. Upon discussions with my CA, he is asking me to deduct TDS on the amount paid to Upwork for the contract as per some Income Tax Act Clause. However, I'm unable to understand the process. Can somebody from Upwork help resolve my query?

True. Upwork should provide some way to comply to this. This is the reason I, being an Indian, don't hire Indian freelancers.
I have avoided Indian clients till recently because of the Tax Issues,I have one now and his first payment will open a pandora's box for me.
With the Indian government growing desperate for revenue and imposing heavy fines on the smallest mistake, Upwork needs to consult their CA and resolve these issues asap....
