Multiple Streams of Income

Jet_Airways…. 20000+ employees lost their job due to sudden shut down of the company.

*Impact:*

1. Many Employees would have EMIs Running for Personal Loans, Home Loans and so on.
2. Few might be struggling with meeting the ends in life. And have to join whatever job they get even with low salary and low level.
3. Many Women employees or Men Employees wife might be Pregnant and will be terrified with this. And they have to find the second Job in Quick time.
4. Many wouldn’t have enough savings to survive till they find the new Job.
5. Many people might have planned so many things for the bright future.
But you know what? One such incident and you are nowhere!

You laterally feel sucked!!

*Learnings:*

1. Never ever depend on Single Source of Income or Company. Or I would say never ever depend on just 1 thing in Life. Have Multiple Sources of Income.
2. Always work towards Building Yourself. Invest money in Making Yourself Irreplaceable. Make yourself such that it’s difficult to replace you.
3. Do not feel secure at Job.
Job is always a Rented House.
Rented House is good till the time you Buy your Own. Don’t misunderstand between these

Practice is boring but that’s what makes your performance interesting

If you are demotivated because you are not getting good opportunities… then this story will motivate you…

It will rain only after 12 years

Once, Lord Indra got upset with Farmers, he announced there will be No rain for 12 years & you won’t be able to produce crops

Farmers begged for clemency from Lord Indra, who then said, Rain will be possible only if Lord Shiva plays his Damru, but he secretly requested Lord Shiva not to agree to these Farmers & when Farmers reached Lord Shiva he repeated the same thing that he will play Damru after 12 years

Disappointed Farmers decided to wait till 12 years but one Farmer regularly was digging treating & putting manure in the soil & sowing the seeds even with no crop emerging

Other Farmers were making fun of that Farmer. After 3 years all Farmers asked that Farmer why are you wasting your time n energy when you know that rains will not come before 12 years

He replied ” I know that crop won’t come out but I’m doing it as a matter of “practice”. After 12 years I will forget the process of growing crops n working in the field so I must keep it doing so that I’m fit to produce the crop, the moment there is rain after 12 years

Hearing his argument Goddess Parvati praised his version before Lord Shiva & said You may also lose the practice of playing the Damru after 12 years
The innocent Lord Shiva in his anxiety just tried to play the Damru, if he could, and hearing the sound of Damru immediately there was rain n the farmer who was regularly working in the field got his crop emerged immediately and others were disappointed.

Debriefing of this story

The game is won during the practice, not during the performance. If you are waiting for the good opportunity before you start practicing, then you have lost the race.

“Practice is boring but that’s what makes your performance interesting”

Deferred tax

Deferred tax refers to the tax effect of temporary differences between accounting income that is calculated by taking into consideration the provisions of Companies Act, 2013 and taxable income that is calculated by taking into consideration the provisions of Income Tax Act,1961.

Temporary Differences:

While calculating taxable income, certain expenses debited to Profit or Loss A/c are disallowed in one period and gets reversed in future period in accordance with provisions of the Income-tax Act. In the same manner, certain incomes credited in one period to Profit or Loss A/c form part of the income in future period. Such items are considered as temporary differences.

 

For example:

(i) In case of treatment of deferred revenue expenditure (say, advertisement expenses incurred in one year but the benefit of which extends in subsequent years also), the expenditure incurred is amortised over a period of time but as per tax laws, it is allowed wholly in first year in which such deferred revenue expenditure is made.

(ii) In case of advance incomes received (say, advance rent), the disclosure of same is mandatory for the purpose of calculating taxable income. However, this income is recognized in the books of account when actually earned.

(iii)       In case of different book and tax depreciation which could arise due to difference in depreciation rates or methods of calculating depreciation i.e. SLM or WDV or differences in composition of actual cost of assets.

(iv) In case of provisions made in anticipation of liabilities where the liability is allowed in the subsequent period when it crystalizes.

Deferred Tax Accounting:

The accounting, presentation and disclosure of deferred tax is carried out as per the provisions of “Accounting Standard- 22” (i.e., Accounting for Taxes on Income) or “Ind AS- 12” (i.e., Income Taxes). Deferred tax asset or deferred tax liability is created by debiting/crediting Statement of Profit and Loss.

The following table shows different cases where deferred tax asset/ liability is required to be created:

CASES DEFERRED TAX ASSET/ LIABILITY
Book Profit > Taxable Profit Deferred Tax Liability (DTL)
Book Profit < Taxable Profit Deferred Tax Asset (DTA)

Deferred Tax Asset/ liability in case of LOSS:

Due to differences in income as per financial books and taxable profit as per tax laws, there is a certainty that one book reflects loss and other shows profit. In that case, the following treatment shall be made:

 

CASES DEFERRED TAX ASSET/ LIABILITY
Loss as per books of accounts and Profit as per tax laws (Subject to the principles of prudence) Deferred Tax Asset (DTA)
Loss as per tax laws and Profit as per books of account (MAT has to be paid) Deferred Tax Liability (DTL)

Deferred Tax Computation Rate:

The deferred tax asset/liability is calculated at the normal rate of tax.

Deferred Tax Asset Accounting:

Deferred Tax Asset (DTA) account is created by crediting Profit & Loss Account. The following journal entry is required to be passed.

Deferred Tax Asset A/C……………. Dr

To Profit & Loss A/C……………………..….

Deferred Tax Liability Accounting:

Deferred Tax Liability (DTL) account is created by crediting Profit & Loss Account. The following journal entry is required to be passed.

Profit & Loss A/C ……………. Dr

To Deferred Tax Liability A/C ………..…….

 

Short Analysis of AS-22 w. r. t. Depreciation-

Deferred Tax is the tax effects of Timing Difference. The whole concept of deferred tax is depending on timing difference.

Accounting income (loss) is the net profit or loss for a period, as reported in the statement of profit and loss, before deducting income tax expense or adding income tax saving.

Taxable income (tax loss) is the amount of the income (loss) for a period, determined in accordance with the tax laws, based upon which income tax payable (recoverable) is determined.

As per AS-22 Timing differences are the differences between taxable income and accounting income for a period that originate in one period and are capable of reversal in one or more subsequent periods.

Example: – An asset is purchased of Rs.1,00,000/- having a useful life of 5 years and allowed 100% depreciation under Income Tax Act. Profit before depreciation is Rs.2,00,000/-.

Rs. 20,000/- (i.e. 100,000/5) is allowed as depreciation while computing the accounting income and Rs.1,00,000/- is allowed as full depreciation in the year of purchase while computing the taxable income.

Hence, Accounting Income is Rs.1,80,000/- (i.e. 2,00,000-20,000)

Taxable Income is Rs.1,00,000/- (i.e. 2,00,000-1,00,000)

Hence, the difference between Accounting Income and Taxable Income is created in this year and shall be created in a subsequent year (by the balance depreciation of Rs. 80,000=1,00,000-20,000) because in subsequent years, while computing the accounting income the entity shall deduct the depreciation of Rs. 20,000 but nil depreciation shall be allowed while computing the taxable income. This is called timing difference.

Important Points of Income Tax for A.Y. 2017-18

Last date of Income Tax Return filing is approaching. All taxpayers have a lot of doubts and queries related to income tax. Though each query is different and unique but there are some common points which are useful for all taxpayers. Over last 10 years, the return filing process has simplified. Once it was unthinkable to file the return on your own. I used to pay Rs 4,000 for return filing in Mumbai. TRP was 1st major reform and max fees of a TRP was capped. Online tax filing turned the table upside down and completely simplified the entire process. In case, you have income only from salary, you don’t require any professional help to file the return.

I still believe that there is a long way to go. The entire taxation process should be simplified. One of the solutions is to do away with deductions and allowances. Tax at lower rate 5% should be charged on Gross income. Another solution is to tax cash transactions which will bring more people in the tax net. The biggest problem in India is the mindset of people to evade tax. If everyone will start paying the tax honestly then Income Tax rates will automatically reduce to lower levels. It will bring more people under tax net as lower rates will not pinch the pocket of taxpayers. Anyways its a topic of long discussion. Through this post, i am sharing 51 important points related to income tax.

1. The official website of Income Tax department is www.incometaxindia.gov.in

2. As per Income Tax Act, Income is taxable under five heads- Salary, House Property, Business or Profession, Capital Gain and income from other Sources. It sounds so simple but in reality it is very complex to calculate.

3. For a Salaried Employee, Form 16 from his Employer is a must.

4. A Salaried Employee can file Income Tax Return by using Form 16 and adding other Income. Here i am assuming that there is no other source of income

5. From FY 2015-16, Transport Allowance is exempted up to Rs.1,600 per month.

6. A Standard deduction of 30% is available on Income from House Property.

7. Second House Property is always considered as deemed let out. You have to consider the Income from House Property even if it is vacant. In case of Home Loan, you can claim Loss from the Let Out Property.

8. For self-occupied house property, maximum deduction of Interest on Home Loan is Rs. 2 Lac. For let out property, actual Home Loan Interest is allowed as a deduction.

Check C-KYC or Central KYC status online?

Central KYC or CKYC was replaced the old KYC process. It’s centralized process avoids you to submit multiple KYC while opening savings bank accounts, buying life insurance or investing in mutual fund products into one time centralized process. How to check CKYC or Central KYC Status online?

As I pointed above, now this new Central KYC or CKYC replaced the old KYC process. This reduced the multiple submission of KYC at different stages of financial transactions.

What is CKYC or Central KYC?

It is a single and centralized KYC process for all your financial transactions. In the old format of KYC, PAN was the sole identifier for an investor. However, in new Central KYC Registry system, the list goes beyond Aadhaar and PAN. It removes the submission of KYC at different level or to different financial institutions of your financial transactions.

It is also the single form to create new KYC or modify the existing KYC. Three types of accounts are specified. One is Normal, second is Simplified or for low-risk customers and third is Small investors. You have to select which is applicable to you.

If your aggregate of all credits in a financial year does not exceed rupees one lakh, the aggregate of all withdrawals and transfers in a month does not exceed rupees ten thousand or the balance at any point of time does not exceed rupees fifty thousand, then you will be considered as SMALL account type of investor.

The simplified or low-risk customers means customers who are not able to submit anyone among 6 documents listed. They are Passport, driving license, PAN card, Voter ID, job card issued by NREGA or Aadhaar Card.

This CKYC or Central KYC also includes the FATCA declaration. Hence, it avoids you declare the same at the different level of your investments.

Fill New Income Tax Return (ITR) Form – 1

The time of the year come again when we all start daydreaming about what we’re going to do with our tax refund, if only we manage to file the returns before the deadline- 31st July 2018.  But procrastination often gets the better of us.

So, if you’re dragging your feet on filing your income tax returns this year, it’s the right time to get moving! The Government last year introduced a maximum penalty of Rs. 10,000 for late filing which is applicable with effect from 1st April 2018.

A new income-tax returns (ITR) form was also introduced for individual taxpayers whose income does not exceed Rs. 50 lakh in a year. Here’s everything you need to know about filling the new Income Tax Return (ITR) Form- 1 online.         

What is ITR Form-1 (Sahaj)?

ITR Form -1 (Sahaj) is a one-page form that was introduced by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) for the A.Y. 2018-19. The form was released for taxpayers with an income of up to Rs. 50 lakh, with salary being the primary source of income, besides income from one house property and other income like interest from bank deposits etc.

Unlike last year, where only details of income from salary or pension along with income from one house property and other income were to be filled, the new form requires you to provide a break-up of your income from each source.

Income From Salary

This head is further divided into five columns – in the first column, enter the amount of basic salary received, excluding all allowances, perquisites, and profit in lieu of salary. This part of your in-hand salary is fully taxable.

In the second column, you need to mention the allowances that are not exempt from tax. For example, transport allowance for FY 2017-18 is exempt from tax for up to Rs. 1,600 per month or Rs. 19,200 annually. So, any amount received over and above will be chargeable to tax. Now, in the third column, enter the details of perquisites received including rent accommodation, employees’ stock options (ESOPs) etc.

The fourth column requires you to fill in the amount related to profit in lieu of salary. This is nothing but the payments received by an employee in lieu of or in addition to salary or wages. For example, any amount of compensation you received from your former employer after the termination of employment etc. Once this is done, enter the deductions under section 16 of the Act like professional tax and entertainment allowance etc. in the last column.

Income From House Property

Unlike last year, if you own a house, you were only required to mention the amount of income earned from the house property without providing any additional details. However, from this year onward, you need to mention a few other details such whether it is a self-occupied or a let-out property, gross rent received, interest payments on your Home Loan etc.

In case you let out a property

If your property was let-out during the previous year, you need to provide a break-up of your gross rent received in the first column. In the subsequent columns, mention the property tax paid to local authorities and the annual value of the property. The annual value is your gross rent minus taxes paid.

You can further claim a standard deduction of 30% of annual value and interest paid on your Home Loan. Mention the same in the fourth and fifth columns respectively. In the last column, “Income chargeable under the head ‘House Property”, just enter the annual value after reducing the amount of standard deduction and interest on Home Loan from it.

Income from other sources

Under this head, you need to mention the interest earned from all your bank deposits. Under section 80TTA, an income of up to Rs. 10,000 from bank accounts is exempt from tax under. So, it’s important to declare interest earned and claim the exemption.

That’s it! Remember, the form is to be filled online, however, you can file the ITR Form-1 offline if you are above the age of 80 years or earn less than Rs. 5 lakh and don’t have a refund claim.

Transferring Your Home Loan

Home Loans are a long-term financial commitment with tenures typically ranging between 10 to 30 years. During this time there is a possibility that you may not be happy with your bank or lending institution, or that your existing interest rate may be too high compared to market rates.

There certainly will arise a thought under such circumstances to transfer your home loan  from your current lender to another. However, as a borrower, you need to look at other aspects as well before moving your loan.

Document Vetting for Refinancing – Even though it’s a transfer of a loan, it is still a new loan for the lender, for which they would require all documents that you originally gave your current lender for vetting process. Your financial statements may have also changed since you availed the loan, so that will also have to be made available through pay slips, Form 16, income tax returns and more.

Processing Fees – Since this will be like refinancing your loan, there is bound to be a processing chargeinvolved. Most banks and NBFCs charge anywhere between 1 per cent and 3 per cent of the remaining loan amount to be paid back as the charge.

Waiting Period – Your loan agreement with your current lender will determine when you are allowed to transfer your loan. You will have to wait until you pay the stipulated amount or complete the waiting period as stated in your agreement before you can find a new lender.

New Tenure and Interest Rate – The point of transferring your home loan is to get a better deal, unless you have severe service issues with your lender. You should try and reduce your tenure in such a scenario to pay off the loan earlier and also look out for lenders who offer a better rate.

Clear Any Pending Dues – The bank will need to give a clearance certificate that will allow the new lender to take charge of the loan. For this clearance you need to make sure that all your pending dues are clear. For instance, pending EMIs and late payment charges need to be paid off before you can transfer your loan.

Also if your home loan is on a fixed interest rate, you will have to pay a pre-payment penalty to transfer your loan. You may want to rethink about transferring your home loan in such a scenario as the penalty may eat up on the advantage given by the new lender.

Collateral Revision – Home Loans are automatically collateral loans as the said property papers will lie with the bank until the entire loan is cleared. If you have already repaid a huge chunk of your loan, do not offer the complete original collateral to your new bank. It is like giving a security which is double the amount of your loan outstanding in some cases. You can use it to take a separate loan instead, if the need arises. Instead, offer your new bank a lesser amount of collateral. If the bank still insists, negotiate for reducing the interest rate further.
