Employees are expected to declare their investments at the start of every financial year. It is important to submit the documents and proof to support their investment declarations before the end of financial year. Tax is calculated based on their investment declaration. Empxtrack allows employees to generate TDS advice for the financial year on both the declared and the actual investment amount.
Empxtrack supports the new and old income tax regimes allowing employees to make the the right choice.
Note: The functionality to seek TDS advice is not available in Empxtrack Free Payroll and HR software. Upgrade to the paid version to allow your employees to generate tax advice in the system.
