** While creating the ideal salary structures, there are three things you should keep in mind
-It should be tax efficient: This means that it should give employees the opportunity to save as much tax as possible. Salary amounts should be divided into components giving the employee the opportunity to avail as much tax deduction as possible.
-Reduce the employer’s liability: The salary structure should reduce the liability of the employer. The employer’s contribution to PF, Gratuity etc. should be kept as low as possible.
-It should be compliant: Compliance norms like minimum wages and PF laws should be kept in mind while drafting the salary structure.
