57How various types of gold investments are taxed?

Gold has always been considered a lucrative investment option in India. However, many people are unaware of the taxation rules that apply to various types of gold investments. As a leading provider of gold investment solutions, Ajmera X-change aims to educate its customers on the different types of taxes that apply to gold investments.

Capital Gains Tax on Gold

Capital gains tax applies to the sale of gold, whether it`s physical gold, gold ETFs, or other gold-based investments. Capital gains tax is calculated based on the difference between the purchase price and the selling price of the gold. If the gold is sold after three years from the date of purchase, it`s considered a long-term capital gain, and the tax rate is 20%. If the gold is sold before three years from the date of purchase, it`s considered a short-term capital gain, and the tax rate is the same as your income tax slab.

Income Tax Rules for Gold Purchase

You don’t have to pay income tax on purchasing gold jewellery or coins. But it is mandatory to provide PAN details if you buy gold worth over Rs. 2 lakhs with cash. A penalty of up to 20% of the purchase value is liable if PAN details aren’t provided at the time of purchase.

Tax Exemption on Gold Purchase

Gold purchases made with non-cash modes of payment like cheques, credit/debit cards, and online transfers are eligible for tax exemption. But if you sell your gold at a profit, capital gains tax will apply, regardless of the mode of payment used for the purchase.

Capital Gain on Sale of Inherited Jewellery

Inherited jewellery is exempt from wealth tax, and no tax is applicable on the transfer of inherited jewellery. However, if you sell the inherited jewellery, capital gains tax will apply, and the tax will be calculated based on the fair market value of the jewellery on the date of inheritance.

Income Tax Gold Limit

There is no limit on the amount of gold you can purchase. In case you`re selling gold at a profit, you need to ensure that the total income from the sale of gold is included in your income tax return.

Capital Gain on Sale of Gold

Capital gain tax is applicable when you sell gold, whether it`s physical gold, gold ETFs, or other gold-based investments. As stated above, selling gold after three years from the date of purchase is considered a long-term capital gain, and the tax rate is 20% whereas selling gold before three years from the date of purchase is considered a short-term capital gain, and the tax rate is the same as your income tax slab.

Understanding the taxation rules that apply to different types of gold investments is essential for anyone looking to invest in gold.
