The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) in their latest notification issued new guidelines for foreign portfolio investors. The foreign portfolio investors are exempted from paying an enhanced surcharge on gains from the transfers of derivates. The derivatives are better known as Future & Options (F&O). However, domestic investors will not get this exemption.
The exemption came with a much-needed explanation about the income from derivatives for the FPI. Earlier, the revenue from the transfer of derivatives was treated as income from the business. Hence, it was liable for tax payment under the normal rate of tax.
In recent clarification, the
Finance Ministry categorized income from derivatives as of the nature of
capital gains. Hence, they are liable to pay tax under the provisions of
section 115AD. This makes them fall under the exemption tax provisions for FPI.

It is essential to inform
that this clarification came as a result of the earlier made announcements made
by the finance minister about surcharge exemption to FPI.
The minister in its press
conference made a declaration about the withdrawal of surcharge levied on
income from capital gains for FPI. However, whether income from derivatives
fall under this scope or not was unclear to the stakeholder as there was no
mention of income from derivatives or section 115AD.
As for now the income from
short term and long term capital gains are exempted from surcharge levied on the
name the “Super Rich” tax. The provision is slowed for both domestic
investors and the FPI.
The exemption of surcharge under 115AD is solely for the FPI. Domestic investors will not get benefits from the tax exemption.
This concludes that the
income from derivates is taxable for in-FPI under the applicable rate of income
tax along with surcharge when it crosses the limit of Rs 2 crores.
