Benefits of CAS
- Performance Evaluation: You can use a CAS to evaluate the performance of your funds and to know when these funds become a long-term investment (for capital gains tax purposes). Equity funds become long term after a 1-year holding period and debt funds become long term after a 3 year-holding period.
- Tax Liability: CAS also gives you a record of all your transactions and hence you can use it to calculate your tax liability. You can also submit the CAS and a tax-saving investment proof to your employer to enable adequate TDS deduction.
- Checking Details: A CAS also enables you to check that your name, PAN and bank account details are correctly mapped to your mutual fund investments and know whether you have been recorded as FATCA compliant or not. FATCA compliance is a procedure required to ascertain your tax residency (Indian or NRI).
- Redemptions and Dividends: You can also use the CAS to track all the redemptions you have made from mutual funds and all the dividends you have obtained from them.
Does CAS include Mutual Fund Charges?
Consolidated Account Statement (CAS) as the name suggests is a statement that keeps all the transactions of mutual fund investment of an investor consolidated at one place. It shows details of sale, purchase and all other details such as NAV, NAV date, etc. of all the mutual fund holdings in an orderly manner.
SEBI has directed all the AMCs to declare all kinds of charges and fees given to the distributors in absolute terms against the investors’ total investments in half yearly CAS. Average Total Expense Ratio (in percentage) for applicable plan of each scheme (Regular or Direct), gross commission figures including the costs incurred by distributors such as service tax, operating expenses and any other payments made in form of sponsorships/events, trips, gifts or rewards are to be mentioned in the CAS.
How do AMCs compute Consolidated Account Statements?
National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) and Central Depository Services Limited (CDSL), that work for National Stock Exchange (NSE) and Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) respectively have details of all kinds of transactions done through an investor’s demat account or in mutual funds. These details are shared by the AMC on the basis of which CAS is computed. Other platforms like CAMS, SBFS also give access to the investors to have a consolidated view of their holdings in an email statement through the PAN option.
