Why is witholding tax being charged to individuals below INR 500,000 income? The law specifically states the exclusion of such individuals provided PAN card is provided. I am attaching the screenshot of the law which states this. I have written to Finance regarding this but they do not reply. Instead i get automated replies that are vague. is anyone facing this issue?
sorry i dont understand these Capitals and your one line question. Please be specific and clear.
In principle i refuse to open my properties on booking.com till some human gives me a satisfactory explanation of why this has happened instead of being analysed by artificial intelligence. Our business is related to being human and hospitality. If this huge company can hear my small voice i would like to say.... your success is because you work with a business of being human and hospitable. It wont take long before you are brought down to your knees because you do not listen to human voices and to your partners who reach out to you.
Thank you Phibomarco for your kind and reassuring words. We will survive because we are human and we treat our guests and partners with kindness. We are happy never to charge our guests even if they cancel at the very last minute because we are blessed with walk ins.
I have had the same issue with debit notes issued to us six months after a claim by BDC that some guests stayed with us and were not reported or were asked to cancel. Why was this not brought to our attention immediately is my question? Why have we been asked to pay six months later without giving us a chance to explain or provide evidence of our own?
its three months now no one is replying and the debit notes are still outstanding. We refuse to make payment for charges that are baseless and an attempt to bring in revenue we presume that they lost due to the pandemic.
Is this the way a company like BDC works? I am shocked and appalled at the treatment meted out to us, their "partners".
I received the following message along with debit notes for commission payable to them for guests who they claim to have stayed with us.
We regret to inform you that your property is temporarily suspended for the upcoming 14 days from the Booking.com platform due to a breach of the Accommodation Agreement (please refer to article 7.3 c) (ii) of the General Delivery Terms). The suspension is effective immediately.
The suspension is taking place because at least one of the following behaviours has been detected:
1. In some reservations the guest stayed at your property but the reservation status has been modified incorrectly on your end in order to avoid paying commission.
2. In some reservations the guest has been asked to cancel the reservation made via Booking.com and make a direct booking at your property.
These behaviours are not allowed per contractual terms.
We kindly request you to honour all outstanding reservations you have on our platform prior to the effective suspension date, regardless of whether the date of the guests’ departure is before or after the date of suspension.
We also encourage you to conduct an internal investigation and make sure that your staff are marking the reservations correctly following the standard procedure.
In accordance with the terms of the Accommodation Agreement, we also request you to pay any outstanding commission due to Booking.com BV (plus costs, expenses and interest, if applicable).
After 14 days you will have a chance to set your property’s listing bookable again - we will send you more details about this once you are eligible.
If you have any questions, please reply to this message and a member of our support team will get back to you.
