Expat Taxation in India

If you are a foreign company sending your employees to India or you are a foreign national headed for work in India you will, in general, become liable to Indian income tax. You can also become liable for capital gains tax on disposal of capital assets in India. Taxation in India is based on the residential status of a person and not on citizenship. Residential status under Indian tax laws is determined solely based on his or her physical presence in India regardless of the purpose of stay. An individual is treated as resident in a year if present in India:

  • -» For 182 days during the year or;
  • -» For 60 days during the year and 365 days during the preceding four years.

Individuals fulfilling neither of these conditions are non residents.

We can assist you in welcome meeting with your employee, review of agreements, computation and preparation of Income Tax Returns and other Tax advisory on Indian Tax issues.
