Will there be TDS on SWP in Mutual fund ?

POSTED BY ragopu ON January 4, 2014 8:56 am COMMENTS (2)

Hello, I am planning to do a SWP from a scheme. The investment into the equity fund scheme was done using SIP which ended in Nov 2013. Will there be TDS on SWP? If not how do I go about calculating my tax implication? I learnt that returns on equity investments which are older than a year are tax free. How will it work in case of an SIP?

Thank you for your help!

    First, if you have completed your SIPs only in November 2013 (don’t know when you started), you should ideally allow equity funds to grow for not less than 3 years. As for your question on taxes, ensure that when you do a SWP, you have completed 1 year for the units’ or sum you are withdrawing so that long-term gains are exempt. In other words, each installment of your SIP should have completed 1 year. This way you can avoid short-term capital gains tax. If you are withdrawing them within 1 year, then short-term capital gains tax will apply on a first-in-first out basis…that is units that came in first will be assumed to have been sold first.


  2. How does it matter ? There is no TDS in mutual funds . So whatever is the mechanism all you need to see if what was your profit in a year (incase you sold) and then pay tax , else its tax free (incase of equity funds)
