In the India version of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, you experience one of the following issues:

  • When you compute withholding tax (either tax deduction at source (TDS) or tax collection at source (TCS)) for a transaction than Indirect taxes and charges are automatically included in the gross transaction value for computation of withholding tax in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2.

    In certain specific scenario where withholding tax on a transaction required to be computed excluding indirect taxes and charges than incorrect withholding tax amount is computed and displayed by the system.

  • When you create a purchase order from a sales order, the tax collection at source (TCS) group field will be empty in interconnected transaction but it will be updated automatically in inter-company transaction.


This article describes that a country-specific update is available to exclude "Indirect taxes" or "charges" for withholding tax (TDS or TCS) calculation in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2.


The tax deduction at source (TDS) on rent under Income-tax Act is required to be deducted on the rent paid or payable excluding the service tax. While as per existing localization indirect tax amount and charges are automatically included in the gross transaction value for computation of TDS/TCS, while under specific tax deduction type user can exclude taxes and charges for computation of TDS or TCS.

This hotfix will enable you to exclude or include any tax or charges for withholding tax calculation (TDS/TCS). Two new lookup menu Exclude tax for TDS or TCS calculation and Include charges for TDS or TCS calculation is provided under withholding tax group (Navigation path: Main menu > General ledger > Setup > Withholding tax > withholding tax group) to exclude indirect taxes and charges for withholding tax calculation.

Two new fields Exclude tax for TDS or TCS calculation and Exclude charges for TDS or TCS calculation are added in the General tab of withholding tax group would be visible only when you unmark and mark again the parameter for TDS or TCS in General Ledger parameters form.

After you apply this fix, the tax collection at source (TCS) group field will be updated in intercompany transaction automatically. However, in case of inter-connected transaction, for example, purchase order from sales order, the TCS group filed will be blank. You have to select TCS group manually.
