Aug 10, 2018 | 1 year ago | Read Time: 1 minute | By iKnowledge Team

Spent more than five years in a company? Now, you have one more income that you need to calculate tax on — gratuity.

When it comes to categorisation for gratuity, following three are the different types of employees with their taxable portion of gratuity—

Government employees:

Completely exempt from tax on gratuity

Employee working for employer covered by the Payment of Gratuity Act

Pay the least of either of the following:

  1. 15 days’ of last-drawn salary × Number of years worked* × Last drawn salary
  2. Rs 10 lakh
  3. Entire gratuity

*The number of years is rounded off to the nearest number. Thus, 12 years and 5 months is considered to be 12 years, while 12 years 7 months is considered to be 13 years.

Employee working for employer not covered by the Payment of Gratuity Act

  1. 15 days’ salary (from the last drawn) × Number of years worked* × Last drawn salary
  2. Rs 10 lakh
  3. Entire Gratuity

*The number of years not completed are discarded. So, 12 years and 5 months is considered to be 12 years. Even 12 years and 11 months is considered to be 12 years.
