Why Invest In Unlisted Shares?

India has just started to unlock its growth story. There are many Indian companies that are unlisted but have enormous potential. The improvement in tech facilities, ease of doing business, and financial resources have revolutionized the way New India functions and in the process created a lot of companies that have great potential. A lot of such companies are unlisted and our research team researches and studies all these companies and chooses only the best ones to invest in.

Let us take an example of Reliance Retail, we know it as the retail behemoth it is today but, how many of us knew that Reliance Retail has existed since 2005 and commenced its business in 2010. Today Reliance Retail has revenue of 26+ billion dollars annually and it is the largest retailer in India.

Unlisted Shares Tax Implications:

The tax implications of unlisted shares are different from listed shares. The applicability of capital tax would depend on whether the unlisted shares were held for short term or long term. If unlisted shares are held for less than 24 months then those shares would attract short-term capital gain tax. Short-term capital gains are taxed as per the investor’s income slab.

If the unlisted shares are held for more than 24 months then those shares would attract long-term capital gain tax. Long-term capital tax is levied at 20% with the benefit of indexation. It is very important to know and comply with the taxation of unlisted shares in India.
