Declare income tax on behalf of an employee

Updated in February- 2024 | Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

Income tax (IT) declaration estimates an employee's tax for the year and ensures correct Tax Deduction at Source (TDS). Declare investments at the start, during salary changes, or when modifying details. Review and update investment plans anytime, with tax calculated based on declarations and regime selection.

IT Declaration page in the greytHR Admin portal helps you assign regimes to employees and declare employees' investment details. As an admin, you can view the plans declared by the employees and create, edit, and delete a plan on their behalf. You can also download an Approved plan.

To view the IT Declaration page, click Payroll > Published Info > IT Declaration.

The page displays the plans under two sections:

  1. Plans created by the employee displays under the Declared by employee section.

  2. Plans created by you display under the Declared by admin section. These plans are automatically approved.

You, as an admin or your employees, can create a maximum of four plans at a time. Each plan displays a regime comparison and the status of the plan, such as Approved, Considered, In Process, and Overridden.

You can perform the following actions on the IT Declaration page:

  1. Declare investments on behalf of an employee.

  2. View a comparison between the old and new regimes.
