All about HUF

All about HUF

HUF (Hindu Undivided Family ), Basic purpose of creating a HUF is to save Income Tax arising out of family Income .This is new form of Tax saving tool. In India there are many Hindu families who live jointly and their properties are ancestral as well as self acquired. Income arising out of such properties can be shown as separate income and to be taxed separately.

Basically, HUF account can be created by right of birth and not by an agreement between two parties. Any individual covered under Hindu personal law that is Hindu,Sikh, Jain or Buddhist can create an HUF account, if they have property income and want to save income tax.

Benefit of creating HUF

By creating HUF one can save substantial amount of Income tax , this is because HUF is treated as distinct entity , separate from Individual forming the HUF.

Let me give you a live example question asked by a client :
Sir, I am working in govt job and my total income is around Rs. 12 Lakh per year . My wife is a school teacher and her income is around Rs 6 lakh per year . When My father was alive he had constructed house and some shops . From that we get rental income of around Rs. 50000 per month .This income is added to my income and I have to pay Income tax on it along with my income. I want to know how can I show this income separately so that it is not taxed in my hand.??

This question was asked by one of my client.

My answer is he should create a HUF and obtain a separate PAN for HUF , that way his income from ancestral house and shops amounting to Rs.6 Lakh (@Rs 50,000/-) will not be taxed in his hand.
Let us calculate his Taxable Income before and after Creating HUF

Income Tax payable before creation of HUF
Income from salary : Rs. 12,00,000
Income from Property : Rs. 6,00,000
Less : Admissible Expneses for Property 1/3= Rs. 200000
Taxable Income from Property = Rs. 4,00,000
Total Taxable Income = Rs. 16,00,000
Income tax payble = Rs. 304200/-

If he creates HUF
a. income from his Salary (after deductions) Rs. 12,00,000
Tax payable : Rs. 179400/-
b. Income from HUF Rs. 600000
less admissible ded. Rs. 200000                                                                                 
Taxable income Rs. 400000
Tax payable = Rs. 7800
Total Tax payable : 179400+7800 = Rs. 187200
saving in Tax Rs. 117000

Salient features of HUF

1. HUF has its own PAN and files a separate tax return. A separate joint Hindu family business is created since it has an entity separate from its members.

2. Deductions under section 80 and other exemptions can be claimed by the HUF in its income tax return.

3. HUF can take an insurance policy on the life of its members and claim deductions under section 80C upto Rs. 1.50 Lakh

4. HUF can pay a salary to its members if they contribute to its functioning of the HUF. This salary expense can be deducted from the income of HUF.

5. Investments can be made from HUF’s income. Any returns from these investments are taxable in the hands of the HUF.

A HUF is taxed at the same rates as an individual.

Please remember your personal income like salary etc can not be shown as HUF income .

A women can not create HUF, she will be part of husband or father's HUF

Only male member can be KARTA of HUF a child becomes a member of HUF by birth itself, no agreement required.

If you are interested in creating a HUF to save your Income Tax , please contact us.(whatsapp 9470307730

What is Presumptive Taxation


What is Presumptive Taxation  (Section 44AD)

We all know that in order to calculate Tax payable by a business house or Professionals like Doctor , lawyers, CA etc , we have to check their Books of accounts , Find out his Turnover or Income and assess Income tax payable by Them.

However in order to save them from complexities , Govt has launched a scheme for such Business man whose annual turnover is less than 2 crore per FY  and Professionals whose Income is less than 50 lakh per FY to avoid keeping books of Accounts and pay tax on Presumption basis as follow :


A person adopting the presumptive taxation scheme can declare income at a prescribed rate and, in turn, is relieved from tedious job of maintenance of books of account.

in case of a person adopting the provisions of section 44AD, income will be computed on presumptive basis, i.e., @ 8% of the turnover or gross receipts of the eligible business for the year.
Income shall be calculated at rate of 6% in respect of total turnover or gross receipts which is received by an account payee cheque or draft or use of electronic clearing system.
In other words, in case of a person adopting the provisions of section 44AD​, income will not be computed in normal manner (i.e., Turnover less Expense) but will be computed @ 8%/6% of the turnover.
Income at higher rate, i.e., higher than 8% can be declared if the actual income is higher than 8%. ​

Professionals like doctors, lawyers, architects, interior designers CA CMS CS and others can adopt PTS. For them, 50% of the total receipts during the fiscal will be considered as profit and get taxed accordingly. A professional can voluntarily declare the income at a higher rate than mandatory 50% of the total receipts.
Example :
A business house adopts PTS (Presumptive Tax System ) , his total income by way of cash transaction is 1 cr and by way of digital mode (Banking) is 50 lakh , his income for taxation purpose will be computed as follow
8% of 1 crore =  Rs. 800000
6% of 50L     =  Rs. 300000
 Toatl             = Rs  1100000
Tax on Rs 11 Lakh will be computed as per his slab

2. A lawyer receives Rs 50 Lakh as his fee in a year. His income for tax purpose will be Taken as Rs 25lakh (50% of Rs 50 Lakh) . Tax on 25 Lakh will be computed as per his Slab.
In both cases books of Accounts are not needed to be maintained.
This scheme is not available for salaried class people.

What is Reverse Charge in GST


What is reverse charge in GST

 What is Reverse Charge in GST

We all know that it is usually seller who has to collect GST and pay it to govt. However in Reverse Charge it is the Purchaser who has to pay GST and not the supplier.
Such situation arise when
    1. Supply is made by an unregistered dealer to a registered dealer. Then registered delaer will have to pay GST
    2. Supply of certain Goods & Services listed by CBES
    3. service through E commerce If an e-commerce operator supplies services then reverse charge will be applicable to the e-commerce operator. He will be liable to pay GST. For example, Amazon provides Goods & services etc. Amazon  is liable to pay GST and collect it from the customers instead of the registered service providers.
