The funding of particular person member’s cash within the title of HUF is usually handled as present made except the member meant it to be a mortgage. Since this transaction solely occurred final yr, you have got the choices to deal with it both manner in case revenue tax return for you and your HUF are pending.
In the event you want to deal with this transaction as present from you to your HUF, it has tax implications. As per the provisions of Part 56(2)(x), any present obtained by an individual is absolutely taxable within the fingers of the recipient in case mixture of all of the presents obtained throughout the yr exceeds fifty thousand rupees. So long as the combination of the all of the presents doesn’t exceed this threshold throughout one monetary yr, there isn’t any tax implication on the present quantity.
Nonetheless, presents obtained on sure event in addition to from sure specified relations should not handled revenue within the fingers of the recipient regardless of the quantity concerned. In case of HUF all its members are coated inside the definition of specified relative. so the quantity gifted by you to your HUF isn’t handled as revenue within the fingers of the HUF.
When the federal government offers by one hand, it usually takes again by one other hand. As per provisions of Part 64(2) the place any member presents any asset to the HUF of which he’s a member, the revenue arising from such gifted asset is required to be clubbed with the revenue of the member who has gifted such asset. So although the revenue from the funding will get credited within the books of accounts of the HUF, you’ll have to embody such revenue in your fingers yr after yr and even after the gifted asset modifications it kind.
Please observe that the clubbing provisions will apply solely in respect of the asset gifted and won’t lengthen to the revenue generated from funding made out of the revenue generated from such asset. Even after belongings of the HUF have been both partially or fully partitioned, the revenue in respect of share allotted to your spouse will proceed to be clubbed in your hand.
In an effort to keep away from such perpetual complication, I might advise you to deal with this transaction as mortgage to your HUF. Cost curiosity on this quantity and take it again as and if you end up comfy. In an effort to keep away from any litigation, I might advise you to cost curiosity at market price.
