If you have sold your stock holdings or mutual fund (MF) units on the Axis Direct trading platform in the financial year 2021-22, use ClearTax and report the details of the gain within minutes. Unlike other platforms, you need to simply copy and paste your trading information on the ClearTax excel template and upload it to capture capital gains details. It will automatically capture the data in the relevant fields and compute the capital gains tax. Read the process below to learn how to use the ClearTax utility tool.

This is how you can upload various shares and mutual funds transactions in a minimum time slot on ClearTax. The short-term and long-term capital gains transactions will be automatically captured under the head’ Capital gains’, and intraday and F&O transactions will be captured under ‘Business Income’.
Isn’t it simple for users trading on Axis Direct to file their taxes?
If there is a gain from the sale of equity shares and mutual funds, then such income is categorised under the head head’ income from capital gains’. Individuals earning such income and not having income from business or profession can file ITR-2. However, income/loss from intraday or F&O transactions are treated as business income (speculative business). In such cases, you should file ITR-3. It is not required to choose the ITR form on ClearTax. It will automatically select the appropriate ITR forms.
You can upload multiple capital gains statements from different brokers on ClearTax. We have partnered with brokers like CAMS, Zerodha, Upstox, Paytm Money, Groww, 5Paisa, Kfintech, Sharekhan, ICICI direct, etc., to simplify the capital gains tax calculations for the investors.
You have to add the previous year’s losses/depreciation on ClearTax. Then previous year’s loss is automatically brought forward and adjusted with the current year’s income as per the Income Tax rules.
