Since there are only 30 days left for it is important for all the individuals to know some key changes that have occurred in this year’s income tax return forms informs Sachin Karpe.

Unlike the previous year’s form, the new forms provide for details to be entered in respect of unclaimed TDS / TCS of the earlier tax year and unclaimed TDS/TCS of the present tax year to be carried forward to the subsequent year.  Also, with an intention to expedite and align the refund process with process applicable to the corporate taxpayers, the new forms have done away with such an option of claiming refund through cheque.  In the new form, the non-corporate taxpayers claiming deduction in respect of bad debts are now required to disclose in their tax return the PAN number of every debtor whose quantum of bad debt exceeds INR 0.1 million.  

Previously, a taxpayer was entitled to set off loss from one source with the income from another source falling within the same head. But in the newly prescribed forms, information in respect of intra head loss adjustment is required to be furnished.  So now before rushing to file your tax returns, it is very important to keep in mind these new changes and act accordingly say Sachin Karpe.

Want to Become the Most Interesting Person Around? By Sachin Karpe

Sachin Karpe shares how to become a most interesting person in your surroundings. The ability to converse is a key competency for successful client pitches, board room presentations, management meetings that influence major business decisions. Skillful small talk and more substantive conversations can make anyone more interesting, provided one has something interesting to say.

Occasionally we get lucky. We ask for something -- resources, money, time, support -- and we get it. But for the most part, the higher the stakes, the more scrutiny our requests are under. Entrepreneurs, managers and executives who cannot make a solid business case, linking needs to strategic goals, detailing risks, opportunities and projected ROI, based on research and analysis, are discounted by the decision-makers who can green-light a project says Sachin Karpe.

A Bad Decision is Better Than No Decision At All says Sachin Karpe

Analysis paralysis is the poison that entrepreneurs continually feed themselves. Guess what? There are millions of people on this planet who are willing to get up every morning, put on their clothes and drag themselves to work so that someone else can tell them what to do.

But it takes a true leader to be the one to make a decision. They are the ones who give direction, and who, ultimately, are willing to carry the burden of responsibility of success or failure on their shoulders. A person who makes a thousand wrong decisions is better off than a person who makes no decisions at all. Why? Because a person who has made a thousand wrong decisions has ruled out a thousand things that do not work for them says Sachin Karpe.

How to turn an idea into business By Sachin Karpe

Regardless of how new you are to the process of starting a business, feeling lost or overwhelmed is understandable and for many people, simply part of the process say Sachin Karpe. A degree in business doesn’t always include training in the practical skills an entrepreneur needs to start a company, and even when it does, actually applying what you’ve learned can be daunting. Once you’ve graduated, you may find that you need to keep topping up your skills with online courses, mentoring programs and - most importantly - real-world experience. The good news is that a great business starts with a great idea, so you’re already well on your way. The good news is that a great business starts with a great idea, so you’re already well on your way.

Sachin Karpe Questions Are you an Entrepreneur?

Entrepreneurs are a unique group of people. Not only do they think differently; they act differently. They draw on personality traits, habits and mind-sets to come up with ideas that straddle the line between insanity and genius. But just because you’re an original thinker and came up with an idea to replace gasoline in cars doesn’t mean you’re cut out to be an entrepreneur. You’re self-confident. You’re passionate. There will be times when you spend an excessive amount of time and do not make a dollar. It’s your passion that will keep you going. You believe that there is more than one definition of job security: You realize that your job is safe as long as you are in control as opposed to relying on a boss who could ruin your career after one swift mistake says Sachin Karpe

How to Become a Better Leader by Sachin Karpe

Sachin Karpe says 'Empower the people below you, then leave them alone.' "A good part of leadership is stepping back," says Bill Pasmore, senior vice president at the Center for Creative Leadership. A good leader leads from front and back. Just like you can't start a weight-loss program without getting on a scale, you must begin your journey by learning the truth about yourself. We're often the worst evaluators of our behavior. 

One of the biggest problems I see is a real lack of self-awareness. Executives often aren't aware of who they are as people and the impact they have on others.

Stick to one goal at a time. Leaders often choose too many development goals. Give yourself the greatest chance for victory by developing one thing at a time.

It is far better to make progress in one area than to make little or none in five says Sachin Karpe

Powerful Guide to Find Your Passion Says Sachin Karpe

Following your passion can be a tough thing. But figuring out what that passion is can be even more elusive. What are you good at? Unless you’re just starting out in life, you have some skills or talent, shown some kind of aptitude. Even if you are just starting out, you might have shown some talent when you were young, even as young as elementary school says Sachin Karpe. What have you secretly dreamed of? You might have some ridiculous dream job you’ve always wanted to do — to be a novelist, an artist, a designer, an architect, a doctor, an entrepreneur, a programmer. But some fear, some self-doubt, has held you back, has led you to dismiss this idea. Maybe there are several. Add them to the list no matter how unrealistic.

How Much You Should Invest in Gold Explains Sachin Karpe

Gold should be seen as one of the numerous investment options for accumulating wealth. The price of gold tends to rise over time. Since investors do not adjust the price for inflation, they see the increase as positive says Sachin Karpe. Gold is valued for its ability to act as a substitute for any other asset, including currency. Whenever there is a crisis in the markets, investors seek refuge in gold. Depending on who you ask, gold is either a wise way to diversify an investment portfolio or an insurance plan against the coming apocalypse. Anyone who tells you they know where the price of gold will be next year or next month is fooling you. No one knows. No one can tell you today whether diversification into gold is a good idea, a neutral idea, or a bad idea. But almost everyone will tell you that diversification is generally a good idea.

Why Shouldn’t I Invest in a Fixed Deposit? Sachin Karpe Explains

Why shouldn't I invest in a Fixed Deposit? is the most common question asked by the investors. Will you invest in a FD of 10k, if the net return will be 6.3% instead of an overall return of 9%? 

Sachin Karpe explains how the fixed deposit calculated. If you have a fixed deposit of Rs. 10,000 with 9% interest rate, pre-tax interest earned during the year would be Rs. 900. Tax on the interest earned at 30% tax rate would be Rs. 270 and net amount earned by the investor would be Rs. 630. This translates into a net return of 6.3% which is much lower than the presumed return.

Sachin Karpe also advices to invest in long term fixed income i.e., debt mutual funds. Long-term capital gains on investments in debt mutual funds are taxed either at 10 per cent flat rate on 20 per cent indexed. Average return of short-term debt funds in the last 3 years is 8.9 per cent. If an individual decides to invest Rs. 10,000 in a short-term debt mutual fund, pre-tax returns earned for one year would be Rs. 890. At a flat 10 per cent tax, Rs. 89 would the tax amount. Net capital gain would be Rs. 801, whereas post-tax interest earned would be 8.01 per cent which is more than the interest rate of fixed deposit.

Planning Equity Investments for 2014

With Lok Sabha elections around the corner, stakes are high on stock market this year. Markets can be expected to see fluctuations owing to the excitement and hope that the new government will announce new policies. Whatever the case may be, equities have their own ways of behaving and the one who plans to invest in it should be aware of the fundamentals, Sachin Karpe observes.

Invest through Systematic Investment Plan or SIP: This way you can divide your investment amount in monthly amounts and monitor the fund performance regularly. This way you escape the risk of putting an entire lump sum amount in a fund.

Keep an eye on market fluctuation: Always look for trend that could affect the market and lead it to climb either upward or go downward. You can monitor net Asset Value of a particular fund and decide to either keep it or sell it off.

Think long term: Equities can be fluctuating, depending on which company and which sector you have put your money in. Or how much is the fund exposed to vulnerabilities. Therefore, it is important to hold on to a fund as it could take positive cues from the market and climb up all of a sudden, leaving you at a good profit.

It is advisable to take equity investment decisions which are in sync with the global as well as domestic economy, Sachin Karpe feels.
