Hindu Undivided Family.

Huf is a family with husband,wife & children living together.The HUF is an account which acknowledges that the particular hindu family is undivided in terms of property, profit or loss in the business etc. It implies for everyone in the family who were at the time of creation of the account and also who were not i.e, people who get married to the family. It does not end with a particular generation and continues forever

HUF stands for Hindu Undivided Family. It is a demat account opened for managing securities of a family. The account is managed by a ‘Karta’ who is a male member of the family and other members of the family are termed as ‘Co-parceners’. Karta manages the HUF account on behalf of the Co-parceners.

HUF is a creation of law so it is your right by birth and it cannot be created by an agreement between two parties. So any individual who is covered by Hindu personal law that is Hindu, Sikh, Jain or Buddhist can create an HUF account. When we talk about creating HUF it is only for the benefit of tax planning. As soon as Hindu individual is married he can open an account in the name of his HUF and when the child is born, he will automatically become member of his fathers HUF. Under income tax, HUF is treated as a separate person. So you can divide your income in two parts. Can a salaried individual divide his income? The answer is no. However, suppose somebody has income and he is planning to create some additional income, for example somebody has income of Rs 10 lakh and he is paying tax on that and he is planning to do some additional business where he expects to earn additional Rs 5 lakh. Now because he has already crossed the limit of Rs 10 lakh, so on additional Rs 5 lakh he will have to pay 30 percent tax as per slab rate applicable. Now suppose he creates an HUF entity and does the business in that entity, then this Rs 5 lakh is a separate income, so he has choice to invest under Section 80 C. Suppose he invests Rs 1 lakh, then the remaining Rs 4 lakh is the income for tax but again there is threshold limit, where on the first Rs 2 lakh there is no tax. So he will pay tax only on Rs 2 lakh and that too only 10 percent because slab rate is applicable. Here if he is dividing income on that Rs 5 lakh; after claiming reduction and claiming the basic exempt limit, he is paying only Rs 20,000 tax plus education cess. Whereas, if that Rs 5 lakh was his individual income in addition to that Rs 10 lakh, he would be paying 30 percent that is Rs 1.5 lakh. In this way the income can be bifurcated, can be divided in two parts. But there the provision of clubbing is also applicable and you cannot transfer your own income, only if you are doing a separate business from other sources you can do this.
