My payment was reversed from my bank account (Return back payment)?

We tried processing your payments but your bank refused to process it. Don't worry, your payment is safe with us, and we'll try and process it again in the next payment cycle.

Payments are reversed mainly due to one/more of following reasons: 

1. Bank details submitted by you are incorrect.

2. Your bank details pertain to an account which is not operational.

3. Bank details provided by you pertain to an account which is JOINTLY held by more than 1 party.

4. Your name as per our records does not match with the name available in bank records.

Sorry, we ONLY accept details of bank accounts that have been opened in your name (Joint Accounts are also not accepted). 

In case you submit the account details do not belong to you, your details will not be processed and hence no payment will be processed.

Why have you deducted 10% TDS from my Payment?

As per the Income Tax Guidelines:
We are required to deduct 10% TDS (Tax Deducted At Source) on all Expert payments that we process. For all such deductions made, we will provide you with a TDS certificate/Form 16A every quarter which you may use for claiming IT refunds (if eligible) at the time of filing your Income Tax Returns.

You can claim your deducted TDS by filing Income tax returns, please refer to a professional Chartered Accountant.

My payment is not included in the TDS!

Payment credited month is considered for TDS submission. For example, the payment for March 2022 was carried out in April 2022, so the TDS consideration will be for April in the case of the March payout.

Note: Q3 (October-December 2022) Form 16A will be available by 1st April 2023.
