A look at the salaries of the top CEOs

Since becoming a CEO is prestigious, lucrative, and a powerful designation to hold, every employee aims at reaching there in their life. Recently, we have started talking so much about CEOs’ salaries that people are shocked to know how much they earn in a day. Not many would know but the salary is a very small part of an executive’s total compensation, there are a lot of incentives they get. A few days back, Kunal Shah, the CEO of Cred revealed that he earns just Rs 15,000 per month and it became a topic of discussion on the internet. Wondering why? Well, CEOs and promoters don’t take compensation through salaries as it is tax-inefficient. They almost end up paying around half of it in taxes, hence it doesn’t really make sense. By taking a low salary, a CEO might be able to reduce their taxable income and pay less in taxes.
