Budget may impose higher tax on F&O income by treating derivatives like lottery: Report
Budget may impose higher tax on F&O income by treating derivatives like lottery: Report Reuters
Synopsis
The government is reportedly planning to impose a higher income tax on F&O, treating it similarly to income from lotteries or cryptocurrencies in the upcoming Budget. This move aims to address concerns about retail traders losing substantial amounts in the derivatives market. Proposed changes include reclassifying F&O transactions from 'business income' to 'speculative income' and potentially introducing a TDS.
Worried about hyperactive retail traders losing tons of money in the derivatives market, the government is said to be considering a proposal to impose higher income tax on futures and options (F&O) by treating it akin to income from lottery or cryptocurrencies in the  Union Budget , according to a report.

The government is considering adjustments to the tax treatment of F&O transactions by reclassifying it from 'business income' to 'speculative income' and even imposing a TDS,  Financial Express   reported.
Being planned to curb retail participation in the derivatives market, the change will mean that F&O income may start getting the same tax treatment as lotteries and cryptocurrencies.

Currently, income from F&O transactions is treated as business income and taxed according to income slabs of 5%, 20%, and 30%. The existing classification also allows gains from F&O to be offset against losses from other business activities.

Applying TDS to F&O would allow the government to track investors in the market more effectively and also deter frequent trading, according to the report.

There are also speculations in the market that the  Budget  may impose a 30% tax, similar to crypto investments, on F&O income.

This regulatory scrutiny arises amidst concerns from various stakeholders, including the government, regulators, exchanges, and fund houses, over the sharp rise in retail trading volumes within the derivatives market.

About a month ago, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman commented on the issue, signaling potential policy changes. "Any unchecked explosion in retail trading in F&O can create future challenges not just for the markets, but for investor sentiment and also for household finances," Sitharaman had stated.

Earlier this week, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said volumes in the derivatives market are perhaps larger than the nominal GDP of India.

"The early warning group is monitoring that. Sebi and the Reserve Bank, together we are monitoring that...Sebi has taken a few measures and they are examining it and I think they will deal with it," Das said at ET Now Leadership Dialogues on Tuesday.

Out of the 108 billion options contracts traded worldwide last year, 78% were from Dalal Street where retailers make up 35% of derivative trading.

The derivatives turnover on the NSE has surged 30 times from Rs 247.5 lakh crore in March 2020 to Rs 7,218 lakh crore in March 2024.

In the meantime, Sebi is said to be considering a series of tweaks to its derivative trading rules to address risks arising from an explosive growth in options trading.

The new rules could include higher margins for options contracts and more detailed disclosures and are being considered after a series of meetings with exchanges, brokers, and fund houses over the past four monthsarket down by 370+ points , according to a report by  Reuters .

This move will be good as it will stop all foolish/uneducated about F&O to leave this segment and go for cash segment which is slightly less risky.
Bitcoin faced 30% so lot of people left it including me. 
I am not a supporter of any political party , I am just saying it because 90 % traders face loss in F&O including me.

No one knows shit about the budget. This govt is good in maintaining secrecy. Media just want attention. Wait till July. But I believe f&o is a dangerous game for retail investors and should be taxed high.

Option is like a lottery even then taking 30% cut from profit is insane but they already had done this in crypto market.

Firestorm Firestorm

Cryptocurrency was based on blockchain technology, which many criminals used for illegal activities. Consequently, the Indian government decided to ban it entirely in India. While this reasoning might be understandable, what about the Indian derivatives market? It's not based on blockchain and has been completely transparent from day one. If the government's aim is to protect new investors from incurring losses, why don't they regulate the market more effectively? They should take swift action against many Instagram and YouTube influencers who promote schemes like 'zero to hero' and sell courses or give market tips illegally on WhatsApp and Telegram. These activities give newbies unrealistic hopes by hiding the reality of the market. I'm not sure if the 30% pre-deducted TDS is real or not, but if it is, it might encourage people to engage in illegal activities to avoid paying taxes, which would ultimately harm the government. This could also lead to more millionaires leaving the country for places like the UAE.

Ye sab burden middle and lower class families pa hi aate hai ... big players toh already 44% tax pay krte hai.

Big players don't care since they already have great contacts with tax haven countries! It's just us who suffer from the burden of stringent tax regulations and financial scrutiny. While they enjoy the benefits of offshore accounts and minimal taxes, we are left grappling with heavy tax rates and limited financial relief. The disparity is glaring, and it only serves to widen the gap between the wealthy elite and the average taxpayer 💔

Crypto tax is already there, no setoff for losses but tax on profits. This is exactly how gambling/lottery tax work too. If you win then pay extra for getting lucky, if you lose then blame your luck & not get any relief. smile

@androgame bro if f&o comes under speculative income no slab will be applicable right ?

Even if they make it speculative, tax slab would still be applicable bro, just setoff won't be possible with other incomes. You would still be able to claim all expenses and everything remains same. Even presumptive taxation would be available. 

If they treat it as lottery then tax slab won't be applicable, this is not likely though. 

I feel they want to remove option of presumptive tax for futures and options, so they might specifically exclude it somewhere.

The Old mindset policymaker are ridiculuous.

They have no idea how to tackle things.

They do not want to work and put effort to innovate to bring soultion to any problem.

They have only one solution increase Tax(for finanace sector issues), increase punishment(for crime)


There are so many good people are ready to give there free service for innovative solution for n number of issues but the system is so flawed that no one cares.
