Hello! Happy Elite Authors from India…

We have crossed 1 Crore Rupees (10 Millions) as an income this year from TF :). We are in a situation to pay almost 1 million rupees as Tax.

Our tax consultant is not sure is there are any exemption available for the template/software export.

Hope, fellow indian authors earns like us can help with this situation.

Note: We withdraw the earnings every month via Swift, so getting USD converted as INR after forex service tax etc.,

I’m also interested to know about that.

Also I have found that we do not have to pay Income tax. We should pay Service Tax as we are doing software exports(kinda).

Service Tax (Current rate is 12.36%. ) is applicable only if your turnover exceed Rs. 10 lacs. ( Your’s is 1Crore :-D ). Google Ad sense Revenue is exempted if any.

If you are doing freelance, Service tax can be billed to your clients. If the amount is deposited in USD to your bank (Bank converts to INR), No need to pay tax for that.
