Importance of checking mutual fund recent dividends

Mutual funds declare dividends from time to time. It becomes important to check the list of forthcoming mutual funds dividend, so you do not miss on the payout. Remember, that such dividends declared by mutual funds are tax free in the hands of the investors. If you go for the growth plan under the schemes, you do not get tax benefits as there is a capital gains tax that is available. So, be careful when you choose your mutual fund scheme. Remember, that it is also important to check the upcoming mutual funds dividend also because there is a possibility of you missing the same and buying the units when the scheme has gone ex dividend. There is something called a record date, that you should keep in mind, before you buy a unit. If the record date is over, then you would not receive your dividends. So, that is one the most important dates that you need to keep in mind, before you invest.

So, how often do mutual funds declare dividends?

It really depends on the type of scheme. If you have opted for a regular dividend plan like monthly, then you would have to go with a debt plan, as the dividends here are more assured. On the other hand, if you go with the growth plan, then you need to think of more of a long term. Most plans often you have both options, and it is purely your choice, which to take and which to skip. Do not forget to remember the tax liability that could arise in each case. Equity schemes, debt schemes and also the balanced funds declare regular dividends and you can check either of these, before deciding to invest in one scheme or the other.

How to calculate returns from recent mutual fund dividends?

It is always difficult to know the returns from mutual fund dividends. However, you should know the same, because you may need to compare, if the mutual fund dividend is better than the returns one gets from bank deposits. So, let us say that you do a simple working. Say, you bought a debt fund with yearly dividend distribution. You calculate and see if the amount of dividend received after one year is also equal to the amount of yields is higher than bank deposits. If the yield is higher, you are better placed when compared to banks. Also, you must noted the tax liability that could arise in the case of both. Mutual fund dividends are more tax efficient than banks, especially the dividends from equity mutual funds. Bank deposits are not tax free at all and hence are a bad proposition. The returns from these are also not very encouraging, which is why the mutual fund dividends is the best proposition that you can have. Also, do not go for the growth option, but, the dividend option of mutual funds. When buying also make sure that you compare and study the recent dividend of mutual funds to avoid, buying ones that have not yielded the best returns over a period of time. We suggest that you look for ones that have a good track record.
