Every quarter, millions of Indian businesses are required to pay Advance Tax.

Advance Tax is the amount of income tax paid much in advance every quarter, rather than a lump-sum payment at the year-end. Also known as earn tax, advance tax is paid in installments as per the due dates decided by the income tax department.

Both individuals and businesses are liable to pay advance tax if their tax liability is greater than or equal to INR 10,000 post TDS payment in a fiscal year.
