More About This Fund

About Axis Liquid Fund

Axis Liquid Fund is an open-ended scheme that primarily invests in debt securities with short maturities. It invests in treasury bills, commercial paper, certificate of deposits and various other money market instruments.

The securities are chosen based on their credit rating. If the possibility of default on payment by the debt issuer is low, the security is given a high rating. This effectively mitigates credit risk.

Returns from liquid funds are dependent on the interest rate of the underlying instruments. The Net Asset Value of these funds is usually stable, and any change whatsoever, would be due to a change in the interest rate, which is relatively stable.

Who Should Invest in Axis Liquid Fund?

  • Investors looking for investment avenues to park their idle money for short term can consider this fund for investment. Over the years, it has delivered better returns than that from savings account, which makes it a better option than the latter.
  • The fund is highly liquid, and carries a low risk on investment. An investor can redeem the fund units as per his/her wishes. This 24/7 instant redemption makes this a comparable alternative to a savings account in terms of liquidity.
  • It is a perfect scheme for those investors who wish to generate regular income for short term. However, as the fund offers high liquidity, the interest rate is lower than what one can get from investment in short-term debt funds such as ICICI Prudential Short Term Debt Fund.
  • You can also look at the CRISIL rating of the fund while making your investment decision, as it gives an idea about the overall performance of the fund over the years, based on its historical return data and portfolio attributes.

Will You Pay Tax?

If an investor has made a capital gain of ₹50000 on investment in Axis Liquid Fund and withdraws the amount before 3 years of investment, Short Term Capital Gains Tax would be levied, as per the income tax slab of the investor. ₹50,000 would be added to the taxable income of the investor and taxed accordingly.

If an investor withdraws the investment including capital gains post 3 years of investment, 20% Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 20% is levied, with the benefit of indexation.

Indexation reduces the value of overall Long Term Capital gains to reflect the effect of inflation on your investment.

To calculate the final value of capital gains post indexation, we use government’s Cost Inflation Index (CII) in the following formula:

Indexed cost of Acquisition = Investment Amount * (CII of the year of withdrawal/ CII of the year of investment)

Suppose the investment amount is ₹70,000 in the year 2016 and the withdrawal  amount is ₹1 Lakh. The value of capital gains is ₹30,000 before indexation

Indexed Cost of Acquisition= 70000* (280/254) = 77165.35

Note: CII in the year 2015 = 254

CII in the year 2018 = 280

Final Value of Capital Gains= 100000- 77165.35 = 22834.65

Tax Payable = 20% of 22834.65 = 4566.93
