Dear All, I have gone through the act but i am unable to find that:
As per sec.10 minimum bonus 8.33% is mandatory, can this mandatory bonus can be paid on monthly basis.
If Yes then can this monthly bonus be deducted from the bonus calculated on allocable surplus.
If yes should the return be submitted on monthly basis or on yearly basis.
The employee who has left the services in mid of financial year is entitled to get bonus more than 8.33% based on allocable surplus.
Seniors are requested to guide on the matter.

Bhanu, I never heard of paying bonus on monthly basis. What advantages you will get in disbursing monthly? pon

Dear Bhanu,
I had never hard about monthly statutory bonus payment.
There is no hard and fast rule that it cannot be paid. We have to pay the certain amount on 8.33% for the financial year. If employee had left also he can claim for that.
I would like expert for their view.

Once the amount of bonus is calculated, it is to be disbursed within eight months of the end of the financial year. That means, bonus for the financial year 2010-11 should be paid before 30th Nov 2011. Therefore, you can pay it in eight installments provided the employees agree to it.
Regarding Bonus as part of CTC, it is only an adjustment whereby the total remuneration is boosted to attract employees and nothing else. It has no legal sanctity.
Moreover, if you predetermine the bonus and pay it on a monthly basis along with monthly salary (as it is as per CTC) then it will attract ESI because any payment made other than reimbursements in an interval of not more than two months shall be treated as wages for the purpose of ESI.

Branches of a group can be clubbed together for determining bonus liability. However, if each unit has separate registration and each unit prepares separate Financial Statements (P&L A/C and Balance Sheet) and files separate It returns, then each will be taken separately for bonus payment. But an establishment once paid bonus can not abstain form it due to the reason that it is running in loss, but has to pay at least the statutory minimum bonus of 8.33%.
If the declared bonus is above 8.33%, then that should be paid to left employees as well. This is because, bonus within the limits of Payment of Bonus act, is considered as deferred wages.

Dear Bhanu,
As per the provisions of the Payment of Bonus Act, Bonus payments need to be done after the finalization of the balance sheet of the company. You will agree with me that no company makes balance sheet on monthly basis. Hence the computation of allocable surplus can not be done as provided in the Act and accordingly no question for provide monthly bonus.

I Think if the employees give a undertaking that they need the bonus to be paid along with the monthly salary it can be paid. This trend is very popular in case of contractual support staff these days.
