Tax Saving

In order for the new FPI regulations to kick off well, it has been very pertinent that the necessary changes made to the Income tax regime, which were applicable to FIIs, are also extended to the FPIs. Based on the current tax framework, the tax benefits to FIIs include:

The key rates under Sec 115AD of Income Tax Act 1961, now applicable on FPI regime are:

  • Interest Income is taxable @ 20%
  • STCG on sale of listed equity shares and units of an equity oriented fund, on which STT is paid at taxable rate of 15%
  • Other STCH @ 30%
  • LTCG on sale of listed or unlisted securities that are sold off the stock exchange are taxable @ 10%
  • As per section 196D, tax withholding regime shall not be applicable on capital gains arising from transfer of securities payable to FIIs
  • The PAYER is not required to withhold the tax at the time of making remittance of the sale proceeds from India
  • The benefit under section 194LD where the FIIs enjoyed a reduced 5% withholding tax rate with respect to interest earned between 1 June 2013 to 1 June 2015 on rupee denominated bonds of Indian companies or government securities would now be extended to FPIs

Note: The tax rates specified above are under the Income-tax Act, 1961 and are exclusive of surcharge and education cess.

Currency Hedging

We have been offering special products for export houses where we structure your currency hedges and help you dis-intermediate your banks. That is because when you hedge with a bank, you end up paying very hefty hidden price for it. Typically our products increase your converted rupee revenues by 5 – 10 % a year without taking any directional bias on the movement of the currency. Our currency hedging products are wide and cover a broad range of requirements.For importers or corporate who have exposure to dollars and are required to make payments in dollar, at a future date, we can bring down your cost of forward hedging significantly. Generally speaking, a bank can charge you anywhere between 7 – 8.5% for a one year forward, typically we can bring down your cost of these forwards by 35 – 50% using our Alpha Hedging Products.

Let’s have a look on some of its Advantages:


Survive Hard Market Period

Also, Hedging enables traders to survive hard market periods. Since the objective of hedging currencies is to minimize losses, it can also allow traders to survive economic downturns, or bearish market periods. If you are a successful hedger, you will be protected against inflation, interest rate changes, commodity price volatility and currency exchange rate fluctuations


Reduce Risk & Losses

The main advantage of this investment approach is to help reduce the risks and losses of the investor. Hedging is a good strategy when dealing with foreign investment opportunities. The price of currencies are volatile, however, hedging currencies can provide investors with more leverage when they put money in the very risky Forex market.


Locking Profit

Hedging tools can also be used for locking the profit. Investors who do not have the time to monitor and check their investments can also benefit from hedging. There are many hedging tools that can effectively lock profits for investors. The gains from hedging are often realised in long term gains.
