Section 52 of the CGST Act, 2017 deals with the provisions of TCS mechanism under GST. It states that every e-commerce operator, other than an agent,shall collect an amount of tax @ notified by the Government, not exceeding 1%,of the net value of taxable supplies made through it by other suppliers where the consideration w.r.t. such supplies is to be collected by the operator.
Now, the term “net value of taxable supplies” = The aggregate value of taxable supplies, except the ones mentioned in Sec. 9(5), made during any month by all registered persons through the operator (-) the aggregate value of taxable supplies returned to the suppliers during that month.
