I want to invest some amount over a period of one year and then withdraw it..I was thinking about the liquid funds but i am not sure whether it is tax effective or not..
P.S. I fall in 10% tax slab.
Dear Rajan, the liquid funds redemption ‘ll involve LTCG as well as STCG for more than & less than 1Y holdings. So it ‘ll be a bit complicated taxation calculation to you. Now compare how much more over bank RDs, you can earn?
In case of RDs, you may earn 7-8% for 13 months period. That’s gtd. but in case of liquid fund, it’s not at all gtd.
Why it’s is not a gud idea to invest in liquid fund For such a rebate tenure
i just want to understand
Dear Rajan, a plain RD is better for you as you fall in 10% tax slab.
Exactly 13 months
Dear Rajan, are you going to invest on mly basis & then redeeming in one go? ‘ll the redemption happen exactly after 1Y from now onwards or you ‘ll redeem after 15-18 months?
If you are in the 30% slab liquid funds are more tax efficient than FDs. For 10% slab it is not that significant. If investing in liquid fund hold them for a little over 1 year to minimize tax
