Dear Vijay, Return under the Bonus Act has to be submitted within 30 days after the expiry of time limit specified for payment of bonus, which is 8 months from the close of the financial year.
Hello Rajeev Verma Ji,
Thanks for your advice. Now our company have paid bonus in sep.08 so up to 31st oct.08 can we submit return and pls. tell me what is the procudure to submit the return.
Dear Vijay,
The actual time for the submission of the Return is December. But it can also be submitted well before the time, there is no issue in that.
It is a one page format, which is attached in the previous post. Just filled the same and submit it to the Labour Department. Hope that is the Competant authority under the Bonus Act and keep an acknowledged copy for your record purpose.

Dear All,
In our CTC structure for Sr. mgmt Cadre, we have a reimbursement component as "Driver's bonus" which is paid in cash. The driver is not provided by the company. The employee himself hires the driver.
Can the company pay the reimbursement in cash? Can the company ask for the Bonus return from the employee.
Looking forward for the advice.
