Professional tax

It is a direct tax that is deducted from employees' gross salaries by the employer.

This tax is levied by the state government and thus can vary depending on the state employees live in. Grove HR will automatically calculate this tax according to each office the admin set up.

The tax is calculated based on the slabs. The admin can click on the “View tax slabs" line to view more or click on the Pencil button to edit. Each state can have different salary slab rates for calculating professional tax.

Labor welfare fund

This fund is managed by individual states, the applicable rules are also determined by individual states and union territories. And, if we have offices in multiple states, we must follow the changing rules. Grove HR has automatically updated the rules of the Labor welfare fund depending on the office you have set up.

📌 Note: Professional tax and Labour welfare fund will only apply to employees’ payroll when you enable it in Salary Policies settings or employees’ payroll.
