    I recently read abt a CBDT circular that gains from capital mrkts wud be considered business income and will be charged in the same way. Not CG anymore.

    What you had read is true.....It is our beloveds FM way to increase litigation even more....It would now be a cat mouse game between the department and the assessee....

    See first let me inform you that this circular has two basis distinctions....

    One....You may be called a trader....You may so be called if you have done heavy buying and selling....bet it intra day or not....it does not matter....what matter is the intention with which the shares were bought....If they were bought with an intention to keep them for the long term then they would not be trader and be classified as investor....If you are a trader then the income is chargeable to tax in the head of business and tax payable @ 30%....But there may be a benefit in it.....:):).....If you socks in hand which are lower than your cost then they would be valued at that and accordingly your closing stock would be less which would mean lower tax outgo...

    Second...The opposite of trader is an investor...Here again the intention of purchasing is the key.....

    One thing good that this circular has said is that a person can have two portfolios.....that he can be a trader in one set of shares and can be a investor for another set of shares....


    and finally just for your information......CBDT circulars and not binding on the assessee but are binding on the department....therefore you can take out the beneficial portion from the circular and throw the rest away....

    I still have physical shares of companies such as ril, l&t, sbi, etc in name of my father, aunts. I want them in demat form in my name...
    Now what is the best way- do i open a separate demat account for each name and then transfer to my name via electronic transfer?
    or fill direct transfer form ?
    as all will be reflected in my demat acc and hence pan card but not in my bank acc as we r the family members holding the shares, so no money is to be paid but the transfer is to be taken as buy/sell. and i ll have to pay brokerage if i go for direct transfer.
    what will be tax in each case? the shares are held for more than 3 yrs so no CGT ?
    Something like gifting the shares...or anything else would reduce/eliminate tax?

    Sir,
    Thanks for your endeavour to clear our doubts.

    Well. Assuming that F&O trades are treated as "business" by the department, how the turnover for tax audit is to be calculated.

    It seems that almost all traders doing F&O trades would be in the tax audit net atleast as far as the department goes.

    Thks & Rgs.

    Dear Harish....

    Taxing of Derivatives would be in the same manner as i have already described in my previous post....i.e. you would have to see if you are dealing in it regularly and with what intention....

    Intention at the time of purchasing is the key to you being taxed in which head !!!

    Dear Dweep....

    It does not matter how you transfer....there would be no tax impact on you relatives as there is no SALE.....In income tax to pay capital gain there has to be sale....it is gifting hence there is no capital gain....that is clear from there angle...

    When you sell then the cost of the original purchaser becomes your cost....:cool::cool:
