Dear seniors
Am working as HR in pharmaceuticals marketing company based at Chennai. We have around 300 employees in sales and marketing working in different state in all over India. We do not have branch office other then Chennai.
We are starting deduction of professional tax for our office employee.
My question is whether can we deduct professional tax for our field employee (medical representative) and do have to pay at Chennai corporation...?
Please clarify..

From India, Madras
As you are confirming that you are not having any branch offices, other then Chennai, we would suggest to deduct the PT from all your employees and remit in Chennai corporation.
Since it is the sole responsibility of Employer to deduct the PT from the appropriate / applicable employees and need to remit to the local body, this can be initiated now.

Thanks for your response.
Suppose,if an employees can remit themselves PT at their local corporation as per their local slab rate.
1. Can we also deduct here at Chennai?
2. Can we must reimbursed the actual payment what they paid already?

How come the employee remit the PT themselves, they have to take the PT Code, wherein they have to mention the Company's Name and Address, and since you do not have Branch Office this is not possible. Secondly how would you satisfy your auditors as well as your corporation officials.
