Tax Planning & Management

Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Most of us work really hard round the year, but give very little priority to the important activity of tax-planning.


Waiting till the last date of tax filing or submission of investment proofs may not give us sufficient time to think through our investment decisions and at the same time puts undue pressure on our cash flows.

Here are a few points to keep in mind while you start planning for your tax:

paymentUnderstanding the components of your income

vasUnderstanding the exemptions and deductions available
