India Inc seems to be leveraging well on the country's growth story and is poised to post better earnings if the corporate advance tax payments made in the December quarter are any indication.

The advance tax outlays of the top 100 companies for the October-December period grew 17.5 per cent over last year while the overall advance tax collection by the Mumbai circle -- the country's largest -- for the quarter is expected to grow over 20 per cent, an income tax source said.

"We are confident of achieving an 18 per cent growth in tax collection for the entire year," the source said.

Barring cement, companies in all the sectors such as banking, auto and pharma have paid more advance tax than last year.

Advance tax payment is a staggered system of paying taxes and is generally seen as a barometer of a particular company's performance as the tax payments are made in line with profit expectations.
