How Do PTEC and PTRC Work?

Professional Tax Enrollment Certificates are called PTECs, and Professional Tax Registration Certificates are called PTRCs. In most states, these registrations are required to conduct business. Professional tax can also be paid by the business entity and the owner of the business with PTEC. PTEC enables companies to pay the professional tax of their directors and their companies, while individuals like professionals and sole proprietors must also register under the program (provided they do not have employees). PTRC, on the other hand, allows employers to pay professional tax certificate taxes to the government by deducting and depositing them from employees’ salaries. It is the responsibility of a regular company to pay its own professional tax, as well as that of all its employees, regardless of whether it is a PTEC or PTRC. If the Company or LLP does not employ any employees, it will only have to pay PTEC and not PTRC and pay Directors and Partners.

People engaged in any profession (business or service) but not partnership firms or HUFs must pay a professional tax of Rs. Every year after incorporation or the commencement of the business, the government charges Rs. 2,500/-. (LLPs and all companies are covered)

Every person who is obligated to deduct professional tax from any employee with a monthly salary above Rs. 7,500/- must obtain this certificate
