Mobility Tax

Helping you consider India tax compliances for expats

Increased globalization and activity in developing markets has contributed to a significant increase in the need to relocate staff and source talent from around the world, resulting in a growth of assignment types with more cultured technology needs

Global mobility is usually important for transnational companies and to create a comprehensive global mobility policy, companies must consider tax-effective compensation packages for employees.

So, 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. \
