Consider a small scale company whose total revenue is Rs.60,000, the overall deduction costs were Rs.10,000. Tax payable is 15%. Calculate the companys net income.

Total Revenue = Rs.60,000

Deductions = Rs. 10,000

Tax = 15%

**Step 2: **Calculate Taxable Income,

Applying the values in the formula,

Taxable Income = Total Revenue - Deductions

Taxable Income = Rs.60,000 - Rs.10,000

Taxable Income = Rs.50,000

**Step 3:** Calculate Net Income,

Applying the values in the formula,

Net Income (NI) or Total Earnings = Taxable Income - Tax Rate

Net Income (NI) = Rs.50,000 - 15% of 50000
