What We Do

Does Withholding Tax Deduction save you from filing Income Tax Return in India?

No. Not at all. Non Filing of Income Tax Return could lead to heavy Penalty and even Prosecution under the Income Tax Act

Who is Liable to File Income Tax Return in India

Every Individual earning an income in India whether resident or non resident is liable to file his income tax return if his income exceeds the Basic Exemption limit. The non filing of Income Tax return in spite of having taxable income, will make you liable to the penalty and prosecution provisions under the Income-tax Act.​

​​​​E-filing can be done from any place at any time and it saves time and efforts. It is simple, easy and faster. The e-filed returns are generally processed faster as compared to returns filed manually.​​

What is Withholding Tax for Non Resident Indians

The Withholding Tax Deduction in India for Non-Residents & Foreign Citizens on Interest Income and Dividend income is 30.9%. This means if we earn US$100 as interest in our Bank US$30.90 is being deducted from it at source by the bank. The only way to claim it back would be by filing an Income Tax Return and claiming a refund from income tax department.

The rate of withholding tax on Sale of Property is 23.92% of the Sale Consideration. This means that 23.92% of the Sale Consideration would be deducted at source from the sale consideration and shall be deposited in the allotted PAN Number of the Seller. However, the Capital Gains Tax in India is payable upon the Capital gains allowable after allowing indexation benefit as per the Income Tax Laws prescribed in the Income Tax Act in India.

Many Non Resident Indians consider withholding tax as Taxes Paid on the Sale of Immovable Property and ignore the filling of Income Tax Return at the year end. The process of withholding tax is a safeguard of the Income Tax Department in India so that the department does not lose its taxes from Non Resident Tax Payers. However the Non Resident Indians must file an Income Tax Return to complete the compliance and claim a refund in case an excess tax deduction has been made.

What We Do

We provide free computation of capital gains for Non Residents & Foreign Nationals in India to enable them to work out their tax liability as per Income Tax Laws. We also assist them in clarifying ways to save capital gains tax in India by investment in capital gains bonds, investment in residential property etc.

We help Non Resident Indian Tax Payers in meeting their compliances relating to Income Tax Return, GST Return etc.

Under the Income Tax Act we calculate the Income Tax Liability of the NRI Tax Payer. We arrange to prepare an Income Tax Return on behalf of the Non Resident and Foreign Nationals in India. Our team prepares the Tax Return files online with the CPC. The Income Tax Refund claim is filed and we pursue the same until the money is credited to the bank account of the NRI Tax Payer.

Public Provident Fund (PPF):

NRIs can continue to hold their existing PPF accounts until maturity, but they cannot extend the account further. However, they cannot open a new PPF account once they become NRI.
