Is APRIL a month of Tax planning ??

YES, is certainly not the activity to start in the last quarter of the financial year. It is a part of the financial planning which is suppose to start from the first month of the financial year i.e. APRIL & is ongoing process.

Through out our career we take life mammoth efforts to earn money for the betterment of our today & future including post retirement life. But hardly we pay attention in investing it in right instrument at right time.

We all are well aware of ELSS scheme of mutual funds but for one stroke investors (not opting SIP) timing is equally crucial while investing in capital market for either entry or exits. Investment made at last minute in hurry may not be a best option for investment or may not generate expected return in comparison of schemes in the same group. People who prefer investing in bank’s tax saver schemes difference of 0.25 per cent in interest rates makes considerable amount of difference due to its long tenure of five year’s.

Investment in tax saving instruments such as post office/ NSC/Kisan vikas patra etc are much talked about & well known, ways of investments. These investments have its own merits & demerits such as long lock in period, interest is not tax free but safe nature of investment. But these options are not the only options. Over a period of time new options have also immerged & can play game changer roll if effectively used it in right manner.


Such as “GIFT”, spouse if not working or his/ her earning is below the taxable limit or one partner in the third level tax slab & his or her spouse is in the first or second tax slab then this option comes handy because person can give a gift up to Rs:-50,000/- per year to the parents, spouse, children as per the income tax act. Though even if prima fascia it appears small amount but for the next year person can get rid of the liability of interest it will generate if invested, which one needs to consider under the head of interest from investment at the time of calculating the tax liability for filling IT return.

As per the judgment given in the case of Bajrang Prasad. VS. Asst CIT husband can pay rent to his wife on couple of conditions laid down as under

A). The flat would be in the name of the wife.

B). Person should actually incurred expenses on rent in respect of the residential accommodation occupied by him i.e. in short person should actually make a payment of rent to his wife.

it is advisable for People who wants to avail this option, to make its payment through cheque & better if it gets reflects in wife’s income tax return under the head of “ income from other sources”. Also normally tenant born the electricity expenses & it is better husband should pay of electricity bills from his own account.

Another not much discussed option is about the increasing employee’s contribution from the existing 12 % to maximum up to 20% but convenient for people who have made adequate amount of contingencies provisions, medical insurances, all major upcoming responsibilities are well taken off. Benefit of this option is that the person can increase the tax free corpus of provident fund & reduce burden of the next years which it will generate from its investment.

Another popular investment option is public provident fund but it is good to start in the beginning of the carrier because of its 15 years long tenure & strict withdrawal limits. Considering the long tenure & good interest rates in fact parents should open account for there adolescent children to built up a corpus for their education, marriage.

For some specified diseases defined under section 11 DD of the income tax deduction up to Rs:- 40,000/- or actual paid whichever is less OR Rs:-60,000/- actual paid whichever is less for senior citizens are exempt under section 80 DDB.


Abatement in the bank interest rates, inflation (CPI) remains above the comfort level & range bound volatility in the share market compelling people to look for other avenues of investments. Company deposits is one the options people consider & priorities in this criteria instead of debt funds or bonds. But there some pros & cons for every investment which needs to be consider before investing into it.

Companies required capital for various purposes such as for the business expansion, as a working capital, which they manage with sources such as bank loan, director loan, corporate bonds, commercial papers etc. Companies are allowed to collect deposits from public known as company deposits. People misperceive these deposits with banks deposits .These deposits are governed by the companies acts, where as banks are governed by the Banking regulations act under strict control of the Reserve bank of India. Moreover cooperative banks have duel control i.e. RBI & respective state act administrated by the cooperative department of the every state.

A significant difference between bank & company deposits is that for companies deposits are unsecured loan in its nature so if company comes into problem, repayment of principle & interest may get delay or even differed & in case of bankruptcy investor may lose their money.


So whether people should invest in banks or companies. Answer of this question varies from person to person depending upon various factors such as investor’s age ,income, willing to take the extra risk for better returns, appetite in case of delay or deferred repayment of principle by the company,. Inspite of all these issues it is advisable that total allocation of such risky investments shall not be more than 10 % of the entire portfolio.

Not necessary that all companies shall have higher interest rates than banks. Some major well known, well market capitalization, financially well placed companies (i.e. well leveraged balance sheets companies ) are conservative & offers interest rates at per with banks. Companies belong to these categories are better & comparatively safe than other companies. Difference of 4 to 5 % interest rates between bank & companies interest rates required critical analysis as those carries excessive risk & in the absence of this analysis better to avoid investing in to it. So it is crucial to have some criteria such as regular dividend paying company, companies with diversified businesses, companies offering unusually high interest rates, private limited companies while selecting the companies.

In case of any problem with the company FD’s, much time consuming & limited options are available to the investors. Because of its nature of unsecured loan, available legal remedies are such as filing complaint with company law board, filing complaint with SEBI, registering the complaint with ministry of corporate affairs, or filing petition with the EOW( economic offence wing) of the high court. But these remedies too have its limitations such as litigations takes years in the high court & there are several practical problems such as complaint has to be filed with concerned jurisdiction of the high court where the company is registered & the concerned zonal office of the CLB. Travelling for every hearing is practically difficult, time & money consuming as well. So for investors better to prefer investing in the companies registered in their own states.

Thanks to the recent amendments in the company’s act, accordingly companies are required to obtain rating for company FD’s from the credit rating agency, which will help to maintain transparency.

While investing in cooperative banks, people should pay attention to some basic aspects such as banks history, dividend history, total bank deposits sectorial loan allocation of the banks (again thanks to RBI for making stringent rules for banking sector to maintain transparency), size of the bank as one high value loan account becomes non performing assets can put small bank into jeopardize. Similarly though FD holders of the cooperative banks do have a protection of insurance up to rupees one lakh but insurance companies procedures, rules , regulations are very stringent & very time consuming even it takes years if bank comes in to problem, as well as insurance company gives priority to the repayment of small deposits such as up to Rs.10,000/- & keep waiting to the medium, high value depositors.


Giving a gift on a valentine day is what a common trend in these days. Undoubtedly it is a symbolic act of love with each other & important as well. For years we are celebrating it in a same way. But are we ready to move one step ahead by way of joining financial planning & ready to give an emotional security to our spouse in its true sense especially in the time of uncertainty instead of only symbolic acts.

Today in some families husband & wife are distributing an expense such as EMI, grocery, taxes, electricity bills will be incurred by one partner & other partner shall take care of remaining expenses, gives a feel of live in relationship instead of good healthy relation.

Financial planning for valentine couple

Every one of us is very emotional about his or her earning/savings & vigorously reactive even in discussing about it but instead of that can we be more open & candidly start discussing about our future plans & ambitions, should set a common goal & prepare a plan accordingly. In the process difference are bound to erupt but by accepting & respecting those differences we should set the common goal for big achievement because we understand a basic principle i.e. united we stand.

Yes, sharing entire income may not be possible for both the partners but at least we should share some amount & should transfer that amount to joint account & incur all the expenses through that account.

Equally it is good for better investment planning such as avoiding repetition of investment schemes/ product offering same benefits. If plan together with joint account will open wide range of investment products of different benefits for different tenure & at minimal risk.

Its importance increases more in a relationship where one partner is working & the other partner is taking care of home. It helps to create true a strong bonding in the relation & gives a feeling of togetherness besides the financial security. It is especially beneficial in the emergency when the other partner may not be available for some genuine reason. These small steps develop trust, confidence in each other & results into emotional attachment.

The industry

Although India is the world’s 2nd largest labour market, only 10% of the labourers have formal employment. Staffing sector runs on this little populace only, which includes companies like Adecco, Randstad, Innovsource, Quesscorp to compete with Team Lease.

With very low barriers to entry, this staffing service market is highly competitive and exploded. There is a lot of price competition, not only for the fees, but at what salary package can you get an employee.

At a lower price band of Rs.785 per share, Company’s PE ratio comes at whopping 49X of the FY 2015 earnings, which seems significantly expensive in comparison to the global peers that are trading at maximum PE of 33X.
Based on the above calculation and profits margins of the company, the valuation of the company seems highly priced


Team Lease is a well claimed brand for staffing solutions in India.

The total market share with Team Lease at present is only 5% but even with a small share like this, it is a name that is well known for its services.

The company is growing drastically but also needs to improve over the margins. The lower price of each share is expected to be Rs.785 which indicates PE ratio of 49X. This is definitely far expensive than the price of its competitors in the market who trade at PE of 33X. Based on the figures stated above, it states that the company is growing rapidly but at the same time the share are very expensive and not too alluring for investors. Issue is likely to create fancy being first mover IPO in the Staffing segment that has bright prospects ahead. Hence this IPO is worth teaming up with for medium to long term.
