advantage to the employee, hence there is no perquisites. If the watchman is

official duties are reimbursed to the employee, there is no advantage to the
assesse, so it is not a perquisite.

employer to the employee. Perquisites are the benefits derived from a job or a
position and these are in addition to salary already being paid to the
employee.

detailed statement with information about perquisites, fringe benefits or
amenities and profits in lieu of salary. The Income Tax Act has set out
rules for calculation of monetary value of these perquisites. The value of
these payments is shown in the form and also the amount that is taxable for the
employee towards these perquisites.

employer. Value of Perquisites u/s17(2) of the Income Tax Act is already
included in the Part B of your Form 16. The
TDS deducted on perquisites is also included in Form 16. Therefore Form 12BA is
an additional detail meant only for perquisites.
