What Can Affect The Value Of Your Investments?

What Can Affect The Value Of Your Investments?

Whatever it is that you invest in usually, there is always the possibility that your investment won’t work out quite as you hoped. The truth is, no matter how careful you are, how much research you have done, or how certain you are, you never know whether any investment will pay off. Technically, an investment is always a gamble. Still, most of the time you can be pretty sure about the outcome of an investment, at least roughly. But there are four main things which can dramatically affect anything you might be invested in before you even know it. And knowing what those are can help you to plan for the future in a more promising way. Let’s take a look at the main things that can affect the value of your investments.

Market Fluctuations

We will begin with the most obvious - but the most common - cause of your investment changing value. Market fluctuations are always happening, no matter what market it is that you are talking about. It is in the nature of a market that it fluctuates, as that is how the whole system works. Still, sometimes it can fluctuate more than at other times, and often that can lead to a significant and sudden change in the value of your investments. It is worth bearing in mind that you need to pay close attention to the market you are invested in, as it dictates first and foremost how much is in your pocket.


Tax

Something that people often forget about is that you need to pay tax on many types of investment. Most investments have some kind of tax, and without taxing these at all the whole system wouldn’t be viable. But you would be amazed at how many people completely overlooked this when they carry out their investments for the first time. When you are calculating your likely returns, remember to account for any tax you might have to pay. If you are struggling to figure it out, get a tax attorney to help you.

Interest

The interest that there might be on any kind of investment can go up and down, and it can do so in such a way that it can actually make a huge difference to how much your investment is worth. Keep a close eye on the interest rates that are relevant to your investments, as they can make a big difference, and they can change quite suddenly. Knowing this should protect you against any sudden misfortune.

World Events


There are all sorts of world events which can affect investments of all kinds, and there is little that you can do about these, of course. They are often unpredictable, and yet can cause a huge amount of devastation to people who have investments. It is a good idea to pay attention to the world nes, especially at times of crisis, as you might want to sell fast before things get much worse. Paying attention to world events soon becomes a must for anyone who wants to make the most of their investment.

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.
