Sahil Aggarwal Presents on Personal Taxation for Foreign Nationals in India

Posted by

On May 28, Dezan Shira & Associates’ International Business Advisory Manager, Sahil Aggarwal, presented on personal taxation for foreign nationals working in India.

The webinar was a great success, drawing in an international audience and covering a wide range of valuable taxation topics useful for expats in India.

Taxation in India

Moving to a foreign country can be challenging. Understanding the nuances of the new tax system is one of the more significant factors contributing to this challenge.

Taxation of individuals in India is based on their residential status and not on citizenship. Residential status is in turn dependent on the physical presence of the individual in India regardless of purpose of stay.

During the webinar, Sahil covered an overview of the Indian tax system along with key provisions of double taxation avoidance agreements. Sahil provided his own comprehensive insights on the topic, with the help of practical examples.

Further, Sahil spoke about the visa regime and tax compliances for foreign nations in India. Some of the topics covered under these sections were employment and business visa provisions, tax registration formalities, tax return filing, and departure formalities.

Before concluding the webinar, Sahil responded to audience questions which revolved around the topics of taxable income in case of ROR, e-FRRO process, exemption and credit methods under DTAA, among others.
