Newbie query about tax

Newbie query about tax

I will start trading in December. I know analysis but have never actually bought and sold stocks. Most likely I will buy 30 shares of a blue chip to know how to buy.

I will sell 20 shares after 15 days to understand selling process.

Then I will repeat it few times to get the hang of it before I start seriously from April.

Query – there will be trading charges, fees, and STT.

But do I have to keep an account?

Bought X shares INR 45,000

Bought Y shares INR 30,000

Sold 30% of X for INR 12,000

Loss ..

STT ..

Net Gain/Loss ..

Or does a platform like Zerodha generate automated P/L account for tax filing?

  2. Your broker will issue a contract note at the end of every day which will have a record of your transactions for the day along with charges and taxes. Save and maintain the contract note files since you might need them in future.
