Registration For Profession Tax Enrollment Certificate (PT-EC)
Taxpayers registered under Goods and Services Tax in Maharastra are now facing a new challenge as they are compulsorily required to register under Professional Tax. Many of the taxpayers have received the following notices.
As per the amendments in the Profession Tax Act 1975, a person (natural / legal) registered under MGST Act is liable to enroll for Profession Tax Enrollment Certificate (PT-EC) and pay Rs.2500 per annum. In addition, if the business is having any employee whose monthly salary is above Rs. 7500/- is also required to obtain Profession Tax Registration Certificate (PT-RC) and pay tax after deducting the same from the employee’s salary as per the provisions of law.From our office records, it is seen that despite being registered under MGST Act, you have neither obtained PT-EC nor PT-RC.
