Why are the Corporate Giants Opting Out of the New Tax Cut-Off Scheme of Modi 2.0?

Why are the Corporate Giants Opting Out of the New Tax Cut-Off Scheme of Modi

Story till Now

To stir up the economy, the Union Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman has announced heavy tax cut off wherein the effective tax rate of around 35% has been reduced to mere 25%. On top of that, the tax rate for new domestic firms and new manufacturing units that set up in India, starting in October and commence production before the end of March, 2023 will be taxed at an effective rate of just 17%.  

This announcement of the Central Government has been received with great enthusiasm by the market as the Sensex hiked up by 1900 on Friday and 1300 points on Monday. This decision, although would cause a revenue loss of around Rs. 1.5 lakh crore to the Union government, is being considered a much needed support by the government to support the falling economy.

Will the benefits of tax reduction be transferred to Consumer?

 This move has been praised by all the business related community and has attracted investors. The tax-reduction, normally, results in lower costs and thereby higher demand for goods or services and ultimately resulting in the treatment of ailing demand. However, for now, it is rational to assume that the Businesses will not be transferring the benefits to the customers. The benefits from such tax reductions might be used to recover the losses that the organizations have faced because of the stagnant demand. 

Recently, nearly every sector was affected by the poor demands and caused huge losses to the Indian market, resulting in loss of jobs and huge unemployment. So, we assume that the benefits would be definitely but not immediately transferred to the ultimate consumers, i.e. once the companies are have made good all the losses incurred by them in the past few months. 

How is the corporate industry reacting for the same?

As stated above, this has provided benefits to the organizations by reduced tax slab and even higher market evaluation for most of the Companies. Although, now the corporate have the option of opting lower tax regime but the condition of foregoing other exemptions has made an economic dilemma in the minds of corporate. Therefore, we are seeing two kinds of actions by the corporate.

Some corporate are opting in the new tax rates and availing the benefits that new policies provide. However, on the other, few corporate such as Godrej and Dabur are opting out of the new scheme. 

Why are some corporates opting out of the new scheme? 

These actions by the giants follow their decisions to claim exemptions provided in the various sections of Income Tax Act, 1961 which would lapse if these corporate giants opt for the new scheme. As far as we can say, the companies who have a lot of exemptions to claim might skip the new schemes as of now and once these exemption benefits have been satisfied, they would opt in the new schemes.

We would like to conclude that companies which are willing to reap the benefits from various exemption-related provisions of the Income Tax Act tax cut off are opting out of the new schemes, rest are highly satisfied by the ‘new gift’ of the Finance Minister.

Why the Indian Market Rose up By 1900 Points?

Why the Indian Market Rose up By 1900 Point

On Friday, the Indian government launched an all out attack on the drooping Indian economy to counter the economic slowdown. Surprisingly, it was welcomed by the investors at a great level where the Sensex rose by over 1900 points and Nifty closed at 11,254. 

The main attraction of the announcement made by the Finance Minister was the tremendous decrease in the tax slab of corporate tax rate. In order to boost up the businesses, there was a significant  cut in the corporate tax rates, the effective tax rate (inclusive of surcharges) for domestic corporate, have been reduced from 34.94% to 25.17%. 

 Also, the tax rate for new domestic firms and new manufacturing units that set up in India, starting in October and commence production before the end of March, 2023 will be taxed at an effective rate of just 17%. 

The above decision of the government is being called as the most visible factor leading to the drastic change in the market, where Sensex and Nifty observed their biggest one-day rise since 2009.

What does this offer to the economy?

The decision clearly offers an incentive to the Indian markets to invest more in the corporate. As, most of advisors are suggesting, the present tax cut has made the country more competitive on a global level as far as corporate taxes were ever concerned. 

It must be noted that whenever such cuts are made there is obviously a loss of revenue for the state. However, such a loss is generally recovered if such an incentive is actually able to stir up the market. There are many benefits, this might bring such as more investment, employment, etc.

 Would it be actually helpful?

Whether or not this change of corporate actually stimulates the current economic slowdown, would be seen in time, but we would like to state what the experts are advise. On one hand, people are saying that this reduction is just a concession rather an actual help. As the real problem is the reduction in demand. Others say that the structural reforms such as GST has caused a loss in the demand of goods and employment. So, it is possible that such a reduction might actually help the current situation.

Why in Investment in Latest Performing Mutual Funds a Progressive Choice?

Performing Mutual Funds
Modern Case Scenario
In this modern world of Investing, people like Warren Buffet and Geraldine Weiss, who are considered as legendary investors, have always advised not to depend on any single source of income and have continuously warned the world about the catastrophic results which over-dependence on any one source of earning can cause. In the past, we have seen scenarios such as the case of Jet airways where a huge group of people were retrenched and lost their jobs. Situations such as these have a major impact on the lives of those affected and their mere existence is often threatened due to lack of finance to support their needs and their families, coercing them to be indebted or forcing them to sell their precious possessions. This is why advisors usually recommend their clients to create a second source of income i.e. investment.
Investing in Mutual Funds
When we think about investment, the rate of return on investment is the first thing that strikes our brain and the risk factor, along with ROI, is one of the most important elements in making any investment decision. Now, the real question arises as to where should this money be invested into, many of the secured securities such as fixed deposit, bonds usually have a low rate of return accompanied with lesser risk and the securities with a higher rate of return such as shares of a company have a much higher risk component, thereby demonstrating the positive relationship between the risk factors and the gain. Here finding the right balance between the element of risk and adequate rate of return is very essential.

For people who wish to play on the safer side usually invest in debt securities and bonds, whereas people with higher risk appetite usually invest in equities. However, for investors who want to have a comparatively higher return than debt but want moderate risk, are often advised to invest in the latest performing mutual funds.
