*n.e.c. – not elsewhere classified
Before filling out the form, you are advised to read the following-
(1) Computation of total income
(a) “Previous year” is the financial year (1st April to the following 31st March) during which the income in question has been earned. “Assessment Year” is the financial year immediately following the previous year.
(b) Total income is to be computed as follows, in the following order:
(i) Classify all items of income under the following heads of income-
(A) “Income from house property”; (B) “Profit and gains from business or profession”; (C) “Capital gains”; and (D) “Income from other sources”. [There may be no income under one or more of the heads at (A), (B), (C) and (D)].
(ii) Compute taxable income of the current year (i.e., the previous year) under each head of income separately in the Schedules which have been structured so as to help you in making these computations as per provisions of the Income-tax Act. These statutory provisions decide what is to be included in your income, what you can claim as an expenditure or allowance and how much, and also what you cannot claim as an expenditure/allowance.
(iii) Set off current year’s head wise loss(es) against current year’s head wise income(s) as per procedures prescribed by the law. A separate Schedule is provided for such set-off.
(iv) Set off, as per procedures prescribed by the law, loss (es) and/or allowance(s) of earlier assessment year(s) brought forward. Also, compute loss (es) and/or allowance(s) that could be set off in future and is (are) to be carried forward as per procedures prescribed by the law. Separate Schedules are provided for this.
(v) Aggregate the head wise end-results as available after (iv) above; this will give you “gross total income”.
(vi) From gross total income, subtract, as per procedures prescribed by the law, “deductions” mentioned in Chapter VIA of the Income-tax Act. The result will be the total income.
(2) Computation of income-tax, surcharge, education cess including secondary and higher education cess and interest in respect of income chargeable to tax
(a) Compute income-tax payable on the total income. Special rates of tax are applicable to some specified items.
(b) In case, the tax liability computed as above is less than 18.5% of book profit, the company is required to pay minimum alternate tax (MAT) under section 115JB at the rate of 18.5% of the profit. The excess tax so paid is allowable to be carried forward for credit in the year in which tax liability under the normal provisions of the Act is more than MAT liability. Such carry-forward is allowable up to 15 years. However, in case of an assessee in International Financial Service Centre (IFSC) and subject to the specified conditions the rate of MAT is 9%.
(c) Compute surcharge on tax payable on deemed total income or total income as applicable. If income includes income of the nature referred to in section 115BBE, surcharge @25% of tax on such income is to be computed. Further,-
(i) in case of a domestic company, if total income exceeds Rs. 1 crore but does not exceed Rs. 10 crore, calculate surcharge on balance tax (i.e. tax on total income minus tax on income chargeable u/s 115BBE) at the rate of 7%. If total income exceeds Rs. 10 crore, calculate surcharge on balance tax (i.e. tax on total income minus tax on income chargeable u/s 115BBE) at the rate of 12%.
(ii) in case of a foreign company, if total income exceeds Rs. 1 crore but does not exceed Rs. 10 crore, calculate surcharge on balance tax (i.e. tax on total income minus tax on income chargeable u/s 115BBE) at the rate of 2%. If total income exceeds Rs. 10 crore, calculate surcharge on balance tax (i.e. tax on total income minus tax on income chargeable u/s 115BBE) at the rate of 5%.
(d) Add Education Cess including secondary and higher education cess at the rate of 3% on the tax payable and surcharge thereon.
(e) Claim relief(s) as prescribed by the law, for double taxation and calculate balance tax payable.
(f) Add interest and fee payable as prescribed by the law to reach total tax, interest and fee payable.
(g) Deduct the amount of prepaid taxes, if any, like “tax deducted at source”, “advance-tax” and “self-assessment-tax”. The result will be the tax payable (or refundable).
