As per the Indian Income Tax Act, any payment/services on which TDS is applicable, the payment to the party should be done after deducting TDS.

If any payment is made outside India, then there is one problem that the tax cannot be collected from them at a later stage.  Therefore, to track this type of transaction, where any payment is made to the Non – Residents, filing of Form 15CA and 15CB introduced.

It also contains the information for nature of payment and what amount in Foreign Currency is being remitted. Also, remittee (Non-Resident) details are mentioned in this Form.

When a person desires to remit any money to non-resident, the bank do check whether the tax was paid or not.
