Freelancers and Taxes

A 9 to 5 job is not something that appeals to everyone. Some people like to change a little so they can pursue other interests, spend more time with their loved ones, or simply avoid the boring routine. That’s why people work for the comfort of their sofas at home, a cool cafe, or workplace. In terms of income tax laws, freelancers are as obligated to pay income tax as other leading or business taxpayers.

1. Free operating income

Freelancing income goes into the picture when you are hired to work on certain part-time jobs and get paid for the job when you are completed and sent. You will not be a company employee or listed. You will not receive any benefits (such as PF) from the Company Law. You do not have to go to the office - in fact, you can complete the work comfortably (with a previously agreed deadline) at any convenient location. Any money you earn by demonstrating your intellectual or manual skills is income from work in accordance with the income tax laws of India. Such income will be taxable such as “Profit and Profit from Business or Professionalism”. Your total income will be the sum of all receipts you received while doing your job. Your bank account statement is a document you can rely on to extract this information, as long as you receive all of your revenue through bank channels.
