The CBDT further said that the Section 194R will be applicable on distribution of free samples to by a company to a doctor who is an employee of a hospital.

The tax will be deduct by the company in the hands of hospital as the benefit/perquisite is provided to the doctor on account of him being the employee of the hospital.

CBDT Said :

“The hospital may subsequently treat this benefit/perquisite as the perquisite given to its employees (if the person who use it is his employee) under section 17 of the Act and deduct tax under section 192 of the Act. In such a case it would be first taxable in the hands of the hospital and then allow as deduction as salary expenditure. Thus, ultimately the amount would get tax in the hands of the employee and not in the hands of the hospital,”.

The CBDT has also provide relaxations on sales discount, cash discount and rebates given to customers from the ambit of the new Section 194R as the inclusion would put sellers into difficulties.

This deduction is not require to be made, if the value or aggregate of value of the benefit or perquisite provide or likely to be provide to the resident during the financial year does not exceed Rs 20,000, the CBDT clarified.
