Form 16 is the TDS (Tax deducted at source) certificate issued by the employer to an employee at the end of a financial year. It confirms that the Customer has paid the taxes they withheld from employees' pay to the government on the employee's behalf.

When will I receive my Form 16?

Form 16 is available at the end of the financial year.

In India, it's typically issued between May 25th and July 31st of the following financial year. Once it becomes available, Form 16 can be found under the Documents tab in your Remote dashboard.

Components of Form 16

Form 16 is divided into two parts: Part A and Part B

    • Employee's PAN
    • Remote's (as the employer in EOR) PAN and TAN
    • Assessment year
