Budget 2023

There are so many complexities involved in the payroll process. Although the government constantly strives to simplify and rationalize the tax provisions, the processes continue to confound many. The recent tax regime changes and other legal amendments have been made for the benefit of employees and employers.

CA Amaranath A.S., Co-founder, Arush India, was at our Parichay webinar to demystify the recent payroll changes made for the financial year (FY) 2023–24. Take a quick look at the highlights before watching the session recording.

  • The new regime is the default regime if the employee doesn't make a choice
  • New tax rates and slabs have been relaxed to benefit employees
  • A Standard Deduction of INR 50,000 applies to salaried persons. Those earning a family pension are also eligible for a deduction of INR 15,000 or one-third of the income, whichever is lower
  • The tax rebate has been raised from INR 5 lacs to INR 7 lacs
  • The surcharge for those earning more than INR 5 crore has decreased from 37% to 25%
