What are the taxes that will be levied?

All ads run on Hotstar are subject to GST (Goods and Services Tax) and TDS (Tax Deducted at source). 
  1. 18% GST is charged on your campaign amount at the time of making the payment
  2. All campaign charges are net of TDS, i.e., you pay Hotstar 100% of the amount due, you pay TDS to the government as is usually due, and Hotstar will reimburse this TDS amount to you once you furnish the TDS certificate. You are requested to furnish the TDS certificate within 120 days of the date of the invoice in order for this payment to be verified and the TDS amount to be refunded to you. 
If you are exempt from paying GST and wish to run ads on our platform, please reach out to us at advertise@hotstar.com
