Hi !
I have a company registered in one state(TN) but branches in 4 more states and all employees (approx 25 only) are currently given appointment letters / paid from that one state only (TN).
In such a case, isn't it sufficient to register for profession tax in the state where the company is registered / employees given appointment letters ?
I worked for a large company where we were given appointment letters from Delhi and no profession tax was deducted ever as Delhi has no PT.
Can anybody reconfirm that the position is still the same ?

Dear Sir,
Even though your company is registered in Tamilnadu and all payroll processing and payment is only from TN, since the Employees are in different states, the PT has to be calculated and remitted based on where the work place of the Employee is. The PT rates are also different and periodicity of remittance shal also vary from state to state.
Please feel free to clarify on this :

I would differ with the ab ove advice, To the best of my knowledge and experience, it is sufficient if you are registered under P/Tax in one state.
You don't need to take seperate registration everywhere as it would lead to additonal administrative inconvinience.

Thanks Mehul,
This is what I too firmly believe as I have seen it being practiced by large companies. But since this was about three years ago, i was not sure whether the same legal environment was still in place.
