Every foreign remittance made for the purpose of business is required to file Form 15CA in Income Tax Portal declaring the amount of remittance, currency, country of payee and nature of transaction for which payment is required to be made.
No bank can clear foreign remittance request of the business until they submit the Form 15CA. So before requesting foreign payment to the Bank, you must have filed the Form 15CA.
Form 15CB is a certification form issued by a qualified chartered accountant who certifies the amount of tax to be paid in India against the amount of foreign remittance made outside India.
The Income Tax Form 15ca is mandatory to be furnished irrespective of the amount of foreign remittance. Form 15CA is divided into 4 parts [Part A, Part B, Part C and Part D]. Each Part of Form 15CA required to be filed in different circumstances.
However, filing of Form 15CB is required only in special cases where foreign remittance exceeds INR 5 Lakhs.
Income Tax Form 15CA is the mandatory form to be submitted to the income tax department when India’s business makes the payment outside India.
Every taxpayer in India should file form 15CA when Foreign Remittance is done as it is the basic declaration defining the details of the payment to non-resident or a foreign company.
It is mandatory to submit Income Tax Form 15CA under Income Tax Act. The major reason why Income Tax Form 15CA is mandatory is to helps the Income Tax Department to track the foreign remittances and their classification to determine the taxes due or the tax liability.
# Part A of Form 15CA
When the foreign remittance is less than Rs. 5 Lakhs in a specific financial year to a single foreign entity then you need to file Part A of Form 15CA only.
# Part B of Form 15CA
Part B of the Form 15CA is needed to be filled when the remittance amount exceeds five lakh rupees in the Financial Year and Indian taxpayer has Income Tax Order/Certificate* w.r.t specified foreign parties which suggest not to deduct tax or deduct tax at low rate.
# Part C of Form 15CA
Similarly, when the foriegn remittance exceeds Rs. 5 Lakhs and possesses no special income tax rate certificate then Part C is required to be filed.
In addition to PartC of Form 15CA, you also need to submit the form 15cb issued by a chartered accountant.
# Part D of Form 15CA
You need to file only Part D of form 15CA if the remittance comes under a particular exemption list.
Important Note:If the remittance amount doesn’t exceed the taxable limit, no form has to be submitted. You might need to consult a CA to know the taxable limit for your payment.
Authorised Dealers/Banks are becoming more careful and ensure that such Forms are received by them prior to foreign remittance so that no income earned evade by Income Tax in India.
The updated Rule 37BB now imposes a responsibility on banks to provide Form 15CA (received from the remitter) to an income-tax department.
The Income Tax Department has recently established an online filing system. As a result, the tax authority requires that Form 15CA be filed electronically.
The proof of the online application should then be obtained. This copy must be presented to the banks as evidence of tax clearance by the relevant tax authorities.
Form 15CB is required when foreign remittance is above ₹5 Lakh outside India. Form 15CB is prepared and issued by CA. Form 15CB includes the details of the payment, TDS rate, TDS deduction and other details of nature and purpose of remittance.
In other words, Form 15CB is the Tax Determination Certificate in which the CA examines income tax chargeability on foreign remittance as per Income Tax law and DTAA.
Form 15CB required to be submitted online and no time limit is prescribed for filing the Form.
Previously, anyone sending money to a non-resident had to provide a certificate in a format prescribed by the RBI. This was done because anyone earning the income in India should also pay the taxes to the Indian Government.
Furthermore, The primary goal was to collect taxes at the time of remittance or as a TDS(Tax Deducted at Source) because collecting taxes from Non-Residents at a later time can be impossible or less feasible.
As a result, to efficiently monitor transactions and collect taxes, the government implemented e-filing of form 15CA and 15CB instead of the certificates.
Now, The deduction of income tax on payments made to non-residents is made mandatory by Section 195 of the Income Tax Act of 1961. An undertaking (in Form 15CA) and a Chartered Accountants Certificate (in Form 15CB) must be provided by the individual sending the payment to a non-resident individual or a company.
|Form 15CA||Form 15CB|
|Required to be file in all the circumstances.||It is required to be file only if payment amount exceeds Rs.5 Lakh.|
|You don’t need to mandatorily get it signed by a CA.||It must be signed by a Chartered Account.|
|Form 15CA doesn’t need any information from Form 15CB.||Form 15CB requires several details from 15CA.|
|Individuals can self-certify the TDS Rate and Deduction.||Only CA Certifies the TDS Rate and Deduction.|
If an assessee who is required to file Form 15CA and 15CB fails to do so before transferring a remittance to a non-resident, he would be subject to penalties under section 271 of the Income Tax Act of 1961.
Even if the individual provided false information, the penalty clause will apply.
Furthermore, The assessing officer can mandate the assessee to bear the consequences and pay the penalty of Rs.1 lakh if the assessee fails to comply and submit form 15CA and 15CB.

The DTAA charges and restrictions differ from nation to country, based on the specific agreement signed by both sides. TDS rates on interest generated are either 10% or 15% in most nations, while rates might range from 7.50 percent to 15% in some cases.
