What are the charges applicable to a Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) account?

The charges applicable for a HUF account are as follows:

  • Account opening charges: ₹500 towards Equity and Commodity trading account opening charges.

A commodity account cannot be opened without opening an equity account. See Can a commodity account be opened without opening an equity trading and demat account?

  • Account Maintenance Charges (AMC): ₹75 + 18% GST per quarter, i.e. every three months starting from the account opening date.
  • Brokerage:
    • Equity delivery: 0.1% or ₹20 per executed order, whichever is lower.
    • Equity intraday: 0.03% or ₹20 per executed order, whichever is lower.
    • Futures: 0.03% or ₹20 per executed order, whichever is lower.
    • Options: ₹20 per executed order.
  • Call and Trade Charges: ₹50 per order placed by the dealer at Zerodha.
  • GST: 18% applies to the brokerage.

Did you know?

  • Except for the equity delivery brokerage charge, the brokerage for a HUF account is the same as an individual account. However, account opening charges are higher due to higher compliance costs.
  • If the Zerodha account has a negative balance, a brokerage of ₹40 per executed order will be charged instead of ₹20 when placing an F&O order.
