Direct Tax Compliances

Direct taxes, often known as income taxes, are levied against people or organizations directly based on their revenues and cannot be passed along to other people.

The provisions of the Indian Income-tax Act, 1961 (the “Act”) govern income tax in India. The Act operates on the self-assessment principle, which requires every person receiving income or any amount to compute their total income under five categories of income—salaries, income from real estate, income from businesses or professions, capital gains, and income from other sources—and to pay their taxes prior to filing an income tax return. Additionally, the payer of the income must adhere to specific compliances, such as those that are related to TDS/WHT. The Act contains an internal system to guarantee correct and prompt compliance. The Act allows for the imposition of interest, a fine, and legal action based on the scope and kind of failures. Every person must generally comply with the following obligations within the allotted time:

  • The submission of a self-assessed income tax return using ITR-1, ITR-2, ITR-3, ITR-4, ITR-5, ITR-6, and ITR-7 forms.
  • Advance tax payment, TDS/WHT reporting on Forms 24Q and 26Q, and payment of advance tax are all required.
  • Submission of the SFT form, which lists all of the financial transactions made during the year.
  • Submitting the tax audit report (Form 3CD) and the transfer price audit report (Form 3CEB) prior to submitting the income tax return
