Word of the Day


Transfer of money or resources from one person to another across international borders is called remittance.

These transfers are usually done by migrants who send money back to their home countries.

Remittances can be sent through various channels, including banks, and online payment platforms.

Remittances play a crucial role in the economies of many countries, particularly in developing nations.

6-Day Course

Theme: tax on mutual funds

Day 4: Thursday

We explained what STCG and LTCG are in Tuesday’s course.

On Wednesday, we explained how tax works in the case of equity mutual funds.

Debt mutual funds:

STCG tax on profits made in less than 3 years is taxed according to a person’s income tax slab.

LTCG tax on profits made in more than 3 years is taxed at 20% with an indexation benefit.

From April 1, 2023, the rules changed.

All gains from debt mutual funds after April 1, 2023, will be taxed based on the investor’s income tax slab.

In short, it’ll be added to your annual income and you have to pay tax accordingly.

Featured Question

“The final dividend is declared in the next FY. So when it must be considered as income and when to consider it for taxation i.e in the last FY for which final dividend was declared or when it is received in the next year? Y?”

It does not matter when the dividend is declared. The date on which it reaches your account is what matters.
Let’s say you own shares of a company ABC.

ABC declared a dividend of Rs 8 per share on 28th March 2023.

The dividend amount was credited to your account on 9th April 2023.

So you will consider 9th April for calculating tax.

Note: in India, the financial year is from 1st April to 31st March of the next year.

Example: the financial year starting on 1st April 2023 and ending on 31st March 2024 is called FY 2023-24.

So if you look at the case we explained above, the dividend was declared in FY 2022-23.

But the dividend reached the bank account in FY 2023-24.

So you will include this dividend when you file your tax for FY 2023-24.

The concept of financial year (FY) can confuse newer investors a bit.

Please re-read the above examples to understand better.
