# What is Tax Collected at Source (TCS)?

This provision is applicable only for E-Commerce
Operator under section 43C of MGL. Every E-Commerce
Operator needs to withhold a percentage (to be notified
later on the recommendation of the GST Council) of the
amount which is due from him to the supplier at the time
of making actual payment to the supplier. Such withheld
amount is to be deposited by such E-Commerce Operator
to the appropriate GST account by the 10th of the next
month. The amount deposited as TCS will be reflected in
the electronic cash ledger of the supplier.
