Charges Explained

Securities/Commodities Transaction Tax

Tax by the government when transacting on the Exchanges. Charged as above on both buy and sell sides when trading Equity Delivery. Charged only on the selling side when trading Intraday or on F&O. Note that, when trading with Espresso, the Securities/Commodities Transaction Tax could be a lot more than the brokerage we charge, so it would be helpful to keep an eye on it.

Transaction/Turnover Charges

  • Exchange transaction charges + Clearing charges. Charged by Exchanges (NSE | BSE | MCX) and the clearing member
  • Clearing charge is the fee levied by the Clearing Member (ISSL) for settling all CDS and MCX trades done by the client on the Exchange
  • BSE has revised transaction charges in XC, XD, XT, Z and ZP groups to Rs 10,000 per crore with effect from Jan 1, 2016
  • BSE has revised transaction charges in SS and ST groups to Rs 1,00,000 per crore of gross turnover
