More About This Fund

About L&T Tax Advantage Fund

With the investment objective of generating long-term capital growth from a diversified portfolio of predominantly equity and equity related securities, L&T Tax Advantage Fund is an open-ended equity linked savings scheme (ELSS) with a statutory lock-in period of 3 years. It is a popular fund amongst retail investors owing to the returns generated.

The fund offers its investors a diversified portfolio of strongly growing companies with a minimum investment of only Rs. 500 via SIP. The fund has invested around 98.51% in Indian stocks, out of which 54.14% is invested in large cap, 25.33% in mid cap stocks and the remaining 10.89% in small cap stocks.

Who Should Invest?

  • Since this is an ELSS, you will be eligible to declare investments in it under Section 80 C of the Income Tax Act amounting to Rs 1.5 lakh in a financial year. As an investor you are tapping into equity as well as saving tax
  • Investing via the SIP mode into the fund could shelter you from market risks and provide you with the dual advantage of power of compounding and rupee cost averaging
  • Since this is an equity-focused fund, it is particularly suitable for you if you seek long term capital growth. The ideal investment horizon should be 3 years
  • Being an Equity Linked Savings Scheme, L&T Tax Advantage Fund has a lock-in period of 3 years, which is considered the lowest among all the tax saving alternatives in the country
  • You should be able to tolerate some amount of risk when investing in the fund
  • Nonetheless, if your maximum tax saving investments are exceeding Rs 1.5 lakh, you could at other equity schemes or hybrid schemes for similar returns
  • It is also suggested that you take a look at the CRISIL rating of the fund while making your investment decision, in order to get 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?

Although investment in the scheme is tax deductible, the returns generated invite taxes. The Union Budget of 2018-19 introduced a Long Term Capital Gains tax of 10% on returns exceeding Rs 1 lakh.

For an example –

Let’s say, an individual has ₹2 lakh disposable taxable income in a given financial year, and s/he decides to invest the amount in ELSS. ₹1.5 lakh out of this amount would be exempted from any taxation.₹50,000 would be taxed as per the income tax slab of the investor.

It should be noted that the investment in ELSS remains locked-in for 3 years.

The returns from ELSS are taxed like that from any other equity mutual fund scheme. However, since the units can’t be redeemed before 3 years of investment, only Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% above ₹1 lakh will be levied.

Suppose an investor has made a capital gain of ₹1.5 lakh on investment in this scheme, and withdraws the amount after 1 year of investment, Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% would be levied on ₹50000. ₹1Lakh is exempted from taxation. The payable tax would be ₹5000.
