Tax Rules for a Resident Individual on a Temporary Foreign Assignment

When an Indian resident travel to another country for a temporary work assignment, it will be termed as “Resident individual on a temporary foreign assignment”.

How are you Taxed when you are a Resident on a Tempoary Forgien Assignment

For example Shilpa gone to UK for 4 months on a temporary assignment and received her salary in Singapore dollars. Her salary credited monthly into her bank account in India. Now, she is returned back to India. How should she file her income tax return?

Filing of tax return is based on Shilpa’s residential status. As you know, Shilpa was outside India for temporary assignment and not live there for more than 182 days. Hence, she will be considered as an Indian resident. She needs to file her income tax this year including the salary that she earned during her foreign assignment.

If her foreign assignment was extended more than 182 days, the residential status of Shilpa would not be the same and she will not be considered as an Indian resident. Now, she needs to file tax only on income earned in India. Shilpa’s foreign income credited into her Indian bank account is taxable in India.
