Capital gains are profits from your investments. When you sell your mutual fund holdings, the returns from the investment are either a capital gain or a capital loss. The capital gains from your mutual fund investments are taxable. The taxation depends on the type of scheme – equity or debt. And also, on your investment holding period. It is necessary for us to know our total capital gains to assess the tax liability. Thus, while filing income tax returns, the mutual fund capital gains statement comes in handy. This article is a guide on downloading a mutual fund capital gains statement.

Registrar and Transfer Agents (RTAs)

Registrar and Transfer Agents consolidate all your mutual fund investments and can generate a single statement for all your mutual fund investments.

Furthermore, you will receive the statement on your email ID through a mail-back service. CAMS and Karvy are SEBI approved RTAs in India.

RTAs handle the back-office operations of mutual funds so that fund houses can focus on investment management and other opportunities. The exceptions are Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund and Sundaram Mutual Fund, both of which have their own RTAs.

Rather than acquiring capital gains statements from individual mutual fund firms, you can get a consolidated report from RTAs. The statement will include capital gains information from all mutual fund houses they serve.
