Hello,

2) Assume that Mr. Ashwin has got transferred to Nasik with an immediate effects and company offers him Rent free accommodation in lieu of HRA however Ashwin pays Rs. 3000/- concession rent to his company. The apartment is owned by company & also provides consumer durables cost Rs.1,00,000/-. Mr. Ashwin wants to know that taxable value of RFA & furniture perquisite. (As per 2001 population census, the city population was 08 Lakh, Depreciated value of furniture/consumer durables Rs. 87,220)

=Basic+DA+Taxable CA+EA

=60000+30000+(7500-1600)+7500=103400*12=1240800

7.5%RFA because population less then 10L=1240800*7.5%=93060 he paid 3000*12=93060-36000=57060+FA

=57060+10000=67060

Can any one confirm this ans

5)Ashwin wants to know that approximate surplus/deficit amount in the retirement corpus once he has earmark PPF a/c (Post retirement corpus will be invested in Debt Instruments). You have advised to invest the maximum amount beginning of every year as per current guideline. You have further advised to extend the PPF a/c for three Blocks and also invest max. Amount end of every year during extended period. The maturity value of extended PPF A/C will be invested in riskfree instruments till retirement. (Mark 4)

Ashwin age=34

7000*(1+4.5%)^(60-34)=219874.5

Then find PV till Sumedha life =82-57= 25 so ans will come 53582595 …(I)

Then PPF

=2019 to 2026 so 7 Years

Find FV for 7 year rate 7.75%, PMT= 150000,PV 6.20L = it will come 2476627

then it extend from 2026 to 2041= for 15 yrs FV(7.75%,15,-150000,2476627)=11582305

After that invested in risk free for 4 years

2041…2045

=11582305*(1+5%)^4=14078364….(II)

less I-II ans will come

9)Ashwin requires Rs.1, 00,000 beginning of every year till retirement for annual Diwali vacation expenses and post retirement, he wants Rs.2, 00,000 every year till his life time. He wants to know how much additional monthly SIP required in existing debt fund till his retirement. (Note Vacation cost is expected to escalate 8%PA) ( Mark 3)

=Till retirement 60-34=26

=pv((1+7.5%)/(1+8%)-1;26;-100000;0;1)=2756941….(I)

Post retirement 200000

=200000*(1+8%)^26=1479270.64 after find PV till lifetime 80-60 =20 Yrs, Rate (1+7.5%)/(1+8%)-1 , Pmt=1479270.64 = 30929889

after that find PV for 26 years Rate 7.5%, years-26,FV-30929889=4718003….(II)

Add I and II 7,474,944.86

and then less existing debt 7.67L= it will come 6,707,944.86

then find pmt for rate 7.5% for 26 yrs it will com 47560.

7)Calculate immediate annual investment required till one year before the retirement to build the retirement corpus for Mr. Ashwin. (Post retirement corpus will be investing 30% to debt fund, 20% in a balanced fund, 20% Gold ETF and 30% diversified equity fund) (Ignore taxation and expenses) ( Mark 5)

He will increase his annual investment 7.5% P.A. as per his income growth.

You have suggested below asset allocation for investment

1st 10 years 70% Equity and 30% Gold ETF

2nd 10 years 60% Equity and 40% Gold ETF

Balance years in 40% equity and 60% Gold ETF

Investing corpus Rate

Debt 30.00% 7.50% 2.25%

Balance F 20.00% 9.50% 1.90%

Gold 20.00% 6.00% 1.20%

Equity 30.00% 11.00% 3.30%

8.65% Total

Fmly household exp 70000*(1+4.5%)^(60-34)=219847 and then find PV till sumedha life time 82-57=25 years , rate=(1+8.6%)/(1+4.5)^(1/12)-1,PMT- 219847.. it will come 42223011.85….(I)

then find equity and debt …assume PMT 100 till 26 years

1st 10 years equity and debt will be fv(11%,10,-70,0,1)=1299.30 and fv(6%,10,-30,0,1)=419

same repeat for 2nd for equity fv(11%,10,-60;-1299,1) and same for debt and repeat for same as above so in end equity and debt will be 9333 and 2300 so total is

9333+2300= 11633 next step find rate for 26 year PMT 100 , FV=11633 ans will come 9.80%

Increasig SIP (1+9.80%)^26-(1+7.5%)^26/(9.80%-7.5%)=209.20*100=20920… (II)

cross multiply 100*42223011.85/20920=201827.

8) You have suggested earmarking the 20% & 30% of an existing share portfolio for Pratik and aslia’s marriage. You have suggested weekly step up SIP (Annual Growth rate 5%pa) in existing Balanced Mutual fund till Aslia’s marriage?

Ashwin wants to know SIP required today? ( Mark 3)

Step 1-Marriage of Prateek and alisha

Prateek and alisha 1800000*(1+7%)^(27-4)= 8532953.75 and same for alisha 10453235.26

Step 2 Existing Portflio 1832000

Prateek=(1832000*20%)= 366400 =366400*(1+11%)^23=4040024.29

Alisha = (1832000*30%)=549600 8287893.70

Then less

Prateek 8532953.75 -4040024.29785462= 4492929.45

same for alisha it will come 2165341.55

Step 3 It will go in Balance MF

Prateek 4492929.45550481/(1+9.50%)^23 =557191.98 same for alisha 204531.080 add both the amt of Prateek and alisha it will come 761723.06 then less existing Balance MFS 3.28L (761723.06-3.28L)= 433723.06

=433723*(1+9.5%)^26=4591764.59…..(I)

Step 4 find FV weekly =fv((1+9.5%)^(1/52)-1;52;-100;0)=5,448.02

=5,448.02 *(1+9.5%)^26-(1+5%)^26/(9.5%-5%)=851,244.67….(II)

Step 5 4591764.59/851,244.67 and multiply by 100 ans will come
