    We haven't deducted TDS on commission for last financial year, which crossed Rs.15000, it has crossed on 07.09.2015, total commission paid for last year was Rs.33862.51.

    can we know how much penalty or interest need to pay to gov? is it necessity to pay interest as we haven't deducted any TDS yet?

    Pls guide me

    Sorry I misread the commission as something else.

    Yes that's correct. Earlier the limit was mere 5000 and the rate was 10%, now the rate is 5% and the limit is 15,000.
    But this has came in to effect from 01.06.2016.

    Prior to this date, the commission has been 11 ,432.03 out of which
    4125.5 pertains to the month of April and remaining 7306.53 to the month of May.

    You should have deducted the tax as soon as the limit was of 5K was crossed.
    Accordingly the interest should be charged @1% from the month of May till the month of actual deduction. [We have to consider the part of the month as a full month.]
    2 months interest @1% per month is payable by you on the amount of
    If there is delay in depositing the tax with govt. after the deduction of tax then there will be additional interest of 1.5% per month.
    [Penalty is not to be paid by you unless specifically asked to pay.]

    I am citing the relevant extracts for your reference.
