Zoho Payroll: Product Updates For India & US - April 2023

As the energy of a new financial year continues to surge through India, we're thrilled to keep the momentum going by sharing the latest updates with you this month. This time, we have expanded our focus to cater to the needs of our users in both the US and India.

In a nutshell, we've unveiled non-taxable earnings for the US and the ability to export the Annual TDS Worksheet report for India. In addition to these country-specific updates, we have also made improvements to enhance the overall user experience in both the web and mobile app.

Discover how these updates can elevate your payroll management experience.

Introducing Non-Taxable Earnings (US)

Non-taxable earnings refer to specific types of income exempt from income tax. Some non-taxable earnings include reimbursements, health insurance premiums, qualified retirement contributions, fringe benefits, etc.

With our latest update, Zoho Payroll allows you to mark such earnings as Non-taxable with ease. By leveraging this functionality, you can ensure compliance with relevant tax regulations.

To add non-taxable earnings, navigate to Settings > Salary Component > Add Earnings and unselect the Mark as Active option.

Exportable Annual TDS Worksheet Report (India)

The Annual TDS Worksheet report simplifies your tax filing process by providing a comprehensive overview of employee details and TDS calculations for a given year. This report includes key information such as employee details, taxable amount and income, surcharge and cess amount, and the total TDS amount.

To download the report, go to Reports > Tax Deduction Summary > Export as > Annual TDS Worksheet report.

Personalize With New Branding Options (US and IN)

We're excited to introduce a unified custom theme feature in Zoho Payroll, empowering you to personalize your payroll interface according to your brand's identity. With our latest update, you can create a cohesive and tailored experience for your organization.

Key features of the unified custom theme include:

Default and Custom Colors: We have provided four default colors to choose from and the option to set a custom color. Using the color picker or by entering the exact color code, you can select the perfect shade that aligns with your brand's color scheme.

Dark Pane or Light Pane: You can choose between a dark or light pane for the corresponding colors, allowing for a layout that best suits your preferences and enhances readability.

We have added the Branding page under Settings > Organisation Profile to access and make changes to the custom theme easily.
