It is important to understand various forms and due date for filling purpose to NSDL for ETDS return.

Uploading ETDS return on NSDL server is mandatory for all type of assesses. Tally.erp 9 support generating of ETDS return for 26Q and form no. 27 which can be directly uploaded to NSDL server after verification of file through file verification utility.However for this purpose, one need to make proper entries in tally.erp 9 for TDS

The Income Tax department has now notified ‘Electronic Filing of Returns of Tax Deducted at Source Scheme, 2003’. It is applicable to all deduct or’s furnishing their TDS return in electronic form. As per this scheme,

  • It is mandatory  for corporate dedicators to furnish their TDS returns in electronic form (e-TDS return) with effect from June 1, 2003.
  • For government deductees or’s it is mandatory to furnish their TDS returns in electronic form (e-TDS return) from the financial year 2004-2005 onwards.

Dear Rupesh,

I do not like that a tally nine reader post his/her comments on irrelevant topic. Your first commented about cheque printing in the post “”How to create excise duty ledger in tally.erp 9?”
Now you wanted to post another comment relating to inventory on an article which is related to ETDS ! Sorry I can’t approve it.
I will suggest you either to post your comments to related articles. your post it to our Support Forum

What do u mean by” one needs to make proper entries in tally9 erp

Mahendra Rana - 6 years ago Reply

Dear Chavan,
What I meant to say is that to Generate your ETDS Return perfectly, you need to make your TDS entries properly in tally.erp 9. The word TDS is an anchor text which contains a link to another article on how to make tds entries properly in tally.erp 9. You should pass all tds entries in automated mode and not in manual mode. only after that you can be able to generate a valied ETDS return as well as tds certificate will be prepared by the tally.erp 9 software itself.
Please revert back in case of further information/clarification

Hi Mahendra,
Recently our Software has discontinued Form 27A and replaced it with Form 26Q. Can you please tell me the reason why it could have done? Is 26Q a statutory replacement for 27A ?

Mahendra Rana - 6 years ago Reply

There is no such replacement. Both form are compulsory and you must comply with both of them.
