India TDS Deduction, Tracking, and FAQ

TDS Deduction:

 

When you trade on KuCoin, if both your (i) KYC identification; and (ii) IP address are from the Republic of India, you may be considered an Indian Taxpayer and may be subject to Indian Tax Law.

 

In this case, you are required to provide your Permanent Account Number (PAN) to KuCoin. Please note that it is mandatory to provide your PAN to us as we will deduct the TDS on your behalf and transfer it to the Income Tax Department in the form of INR. If you have not provided your PAN to KuCoin, please click here.

TDS is applicable when you sell in the INR/Crypto market, buy/sell in the Crypto/Crypto market & sell in the P2P market. TDS is not levied when you buy in the INR/Crypto market. 

The following table illustrates when TDS will be levied on your transaction.

Under the Indian Tax Law, a higher TDS rate of 20% should be imposed if both your (i) KYC identification; and (ii) IP address are from the Republic of India, but you have not provided KuCoin with your PAN.

However, on KuCoin’s platform, if you refuse to provide your PAN, you will not be allowed to trade or use KuCoin’s services which would attract TDS.
