Hello Everyone,

We are a start up IT company in Tamil Nadu. Our company was registered with a address in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu. However, we have rented offices in Chennai and Bangalore and few people are working from these two cities. We don't have any branch in Tuticorin as its a interior part of Tamil Nadu and we don't want to have people for us from there.

We started our company this financial year 2012-13 and till now we are deducting only TDS for our employees. But I was informed by one of the government official that we need to deduct professional tax for employees every six months and same has to be paid to local corporation or municipality. I managed to search online and got the appropriate tax slabs

Here is our question. As per company registration certificate, registered company address is in Tuticorin but our employees are working in Chennai and Bangalore. So, Where and How we need to pay this professional tax?

Your answers would be really helpful for a start up company like ours. Thanks in Advance.

For the employees who are working in Chennai & Tuti you shall pay in chennai. But for the employees in Bangalore you should approach for separate registration in Bangalore. Even the tax amount should paid in Bangalore only. Being PT as State act tax amount should paid in respective state only. In Karnataka PT should be collected monthly & should be deposited on monthly base only.

We would like to clarify your doubts on PT.

As far as Professional Tax concern in Tamil Nadu, the following payments are to be made in the respective corporations / or municipalities.

1) Professional Tax Employees Contribution - This has to be remitted where you have branch / employees in a particular location as per slab.

2) Professional Tax Employer Contribution - This has to be remitted where you have branch / employees in a particular location - based on highest slab rate.

3) Company Tax - This has to be remitted where you have registered your company & obtained Certificate of Incorporation - Constant Rs. 1000/-

Since you have not engaged employees in Tuticorin, you have to pay only the Company Tax amount in Tuticorin. And rest of the contributions should be paid in Chennai.

In order to remit the PT payment in Chennai / Tuticorin, you should register your branch / corporate office in the respective locations. Once you get the registration certificate under Professional Tax, you can start remit the payment once in six months.

There are two half yearly periods in PT remittance:

1st Half - April to September (should be paid on or before 15th September)

2nd Half - October to March (should be paid on or before 15th February)

We hope, we have clarified your doubts....

Dear Seniors, Kindly advise me on my below query. It will really appreciated your resonse.
there is no option of paying PT through online in Chennai.
If it is first time payment, then your establishment needs to be registered under the PT act at Corporation of Chennai and they will allot the new PT Assessment Number to your establishment (Unique) and you can start remit the payment, once in six months.
If already registered, you can make three different cheques in favour of "The revenue Officer, Corporation of Chennai" and remit the payment to the respective zonal office.
In case, you are looking for any support, please write to
One Cheque for Company Tax amount - Rs. 1000/- One cheque for Employees amount - One cheque for Employer’s amount - Rs. 1095/-
