Practice Areas

VSG LawVision Attorneys LLP's Direct Tax team offers a comprehensive understanding of the Indian tax system, particularly direct taxes like income tax, capital gains tax, and even the intricacies of Tax Deducted at Source (TDS). Their team of experts can assist you with navigating the complexities of these taxes, including the taxability of foreign income in India.

Understanding Direct Taxes:

Income Tax: This is a tax levied on the income you earn from various sources like salaries, wages, interest, rent, and business profits. Essentially, it's a contribution you make to the government based on your annual earnings.

Capital Gains Tax: This tax applies to the profit you earn when you sell a capital asset, such as stocks, real estate, or investments. It essentially taxes the increase in value of the asset during your ownership. Navigating TDS Complexities:

TDS, or Tax Deducted at Source, is a mechanism where the person or entity making a specified payment withholds a specific amount of tax at source and deposits it with the government on behalf of the recipient. This ensures a steady flow of tax revenue throughout the year. Understanding TDS compliance can be crucial, as it involves:

  • Identifying the applicability of TDS on different types of payments.
  • Determining the correct rate of tax to deduct.
  • Depositing the deducted tax within the stipulated timelines.
  • Filing TDS returns accurately.
Taxability of Foreign Income:

The taxability of foreign income in India depends on your residential status for tax purposes.

Residents: If you are considered a resident of India by tax law, your worldwide income, including foreign income, is generally taxable in India.
Non-Residents: If you are considered a non-resident of India, only your income earned in India is taxable. However, there are specific exceptions for certain types of foreign income, such as interest on foreign bank accounts, that may be taxable even for non-residents.

Considering the complexities of foreign income taxability, consulting a qualified and experienced tax professional is recommended to determine your specific situation.

By understanding these aspects of direct taxes, you can be better equipped to navigate the Indian tax system.
