The term HUF stands for ‘Hindu Undivided Family’ and comprises of all descendants of a common male ancestor and includes their wives and unmarried daughters. The term of HUF is not defined in income tax law; it is defined under the Hindu Law as a family. The family continues to exist even after the death of the common ancestor and the next eldest male member becomes the head of the family or the “Karta”. In financial terms, we can call him ‘manager of the family’. Even on the death of all the male members, the HUF continues to exist. The term ‘Hindu Undivided Family’ (HUF) is defined under Hindu Law, so it can’t be created by an agreement between two parties, nor can it be formed by group of people who do not constitute the family. Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs can also form HUF. We at ebizfiling, will make the process of creation of Hindu Undivided Family(HUF) very smooth and easy.
