  • Return of taxing times | The Financial Express
    can initiate an assessment An interest at the rate of 1 per month is payable on the balance amount of taxes deposited from the due date of filing of tax returns till the date when the return is actually filed under Section 234A of the Act Thus even if you file a belated return it is advisable to deposit the outstanding tax liability at the earliest so that the interest liability is minimised For instance if a tax payer has to pay advance tax and he did not meet the deadlines of 30 by September 60 by December and 100 by March 15 then he will have to pay a penalty If the advance tax amount paid is less than the compulsory 30 of the total liability by the first deadline September 15 then 1 simple interest per month on the defaulted amount for three months will be charged The same penalty will also apply if the tax payer missed the second deadline of 15 December and missing the last deadline of 15 March will amount to 1 interest on the entire defaulted amount for every month until the tax is fully paid If tax returns are not filed within the due date there could also be a delay in getting refunds if any as well As the income tax department needs time to process returns their priority would be for those having been filed before the due date Also if a taxpayer does not file returns on time he cannot carry forward losses So if you have incurred business or capital loss other than loss from house property during the year you will have to forgo the right to carry them to future years if returns are not filed on time In case of returns filed by the due date the loss is allowed to be carried forward for eight years for setting off against incomes of future years subject to certain conditions and this set off can help reduce tax liability of the taxpayer for the future years As per the I T Act only returns filed by the due date can be revised Filing tax returns on time has lot of benefits If one applies for a loan he will have to show returns of the last three years or else the loan application may be rejected Moreover if he applies for a visa many countries require the tax payer to show the most recent ITR and even for buying a life insurance policy with a higher sum assured one needs to show the latest tax returns Tax calculator Under the income tax law an assessee can file returns within two years from the end of the relevant financial year If the return is filed on time the assessee can carry forward the loss up to the following eight years to be set off against a future income Short term loss may be adjusted either against short term gains or taxable long term gains while long term

  • An inflection point in gold likely this year | The Financial Express
    from the current level of between 0 25 and 0 50 Markets never bought that forecast and they buy it even less after the recent FOMC meeting wherein Fed attempted a U turn by trying to scale back their aggressive tightening stance In what was a modestly more dovish tone the Fed quietly downgraded its assessment of the economy by removing the reference from its previous statement that the risks to the economic outlook were balanced The Fed took stock of a more perilous international picture that could alter its plans for further raising rates Fed officials issued a statement after their latest policy meeting that suggested they might reduce the pace of future rate hikes if market losses and global weakness persists A plunge in the stock markets and China s slowing rate of economic growth have led to hopes that the Fed would ease off the brake pedal of monetary policy normalisation As the global economy continues to limp along central bankers will look to more easing even if it isn t the best solution The level of divergence in the Fed s stance compared to the rest of the world would diminish or at least stabilise which would ease the downward pressure on the price of gold As the Fed walks back on its own expectations that should eventually support a rebound in a broader basket of assets closely tied to the value of the dollar The US economic health is in question and the Fed could soon tone down its projections about rate expectations for this year The US dollar could weaken from its elevated levels as a result The US equities are still trading at high valuations and therefore offer a less attractive option for both US and foreign investors Thus investors would do well to recognise the shifting economic landscape by allocating a portion of their portfolio to gold In a volatile asset environment and an era of experimental central banking it s difficult to forecast whether or not the bottom in gold has been placed Given the macroeconomic picture the downsides look limited in gold and this year will likely mark an inflection point in the yellow metal The writer is senior fund manager Alternative Investments Quantum AMC First Published on February 5 2016 12 03 am Tags Gold Please Wait while comments are loading More on this story Gold futures remain up on global cues spot demand Gold gains more on global cues silver strengthens Gold firms up to 3 month high amid wedding season buying Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex
