Source: Internal data compilation. Note: The above examples including the taxation illustration for traditional investment are given for general information only. Units and numbers in the above calculations have been rounded off. Investments made in equity mutual fund schemes carry high risk and there is no assurance or guarantee that the objective of the schemes will be achieved. The above illustration should not be considered as any guarantee of returns to the investors / who are opting for SWP. In view of the individual circumstances and risk profile, each investor is advised to consult their investment/tax advisor(s) before making a decision to invest. Valuation date – June 1, 2017. The date of enrolment for SWP has been assumed as 1st of every month. If such date is a non-business day, then the SWP is processed on next business day. In the above calculations, it has been assumed that investor falls under highest tax bracket (i.e. 30%) and total income of the investor does not exceed Rs. 1 crore. Gains on the redemption of units of mutual fund are treated as capital gains for income tax purpose. For equity-oriented schemes, gains on the investment for <=1 year are treated as Short-Term Capital Gains (STCG) and taxed at 15% while gains on investment greater than 1 year are treated as Long-Term Capital Gains (LTCG) and are exempt as per current tax regulations. Calculations of tax include the amount of tax plus surcharge. At the time of the redemption of units, redemption amount comprises two parts. One is the invested amount and the other is gains on the invested amount. STCG/LTCG tax is applicable only on the gains made on the redemption units. In case of Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP), at the time of redemption of each instalment, investor needs to pay STCG/LTCG tax only on the gains part and not on the invested amount. Over a period of time with market appreciation, in each SWP instalment, invested amount (principal) component decreases and growth/gains part increases. Thus it helps the investor over a period of time to consume less principal amount and thereby allowing the balance principal amount to grow further.
Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risk, read all scheme related document carefully.
