What is FATCA and how is it applicable to Mutual Funds investments in India? Can US/Canada NRIs invest in Indian Mutual Funds?

Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is a US government tax policy to which India is also a signatory. As per this act, the Indian Financial Institutions like Indian Mutual Funds are required to report investment transactions of US Persons and Entities to the US government. These transaction reporting is used by the US government to determine the tax liability of their persons and entities as per their domestic tax policies and laws. Due to this, all Indian Investors including NRIs are required to declare FATCA details at the time of their investments to the Mutual Fund houses.
And yes, US/Canada NRIs can invest in indian Mutual Funds.

What is the documentation required to Invest in Indian Mutual Funds for NRI Investors?

The following documents are required to invest in Mutual Funds in India:

  1. Pan Card Copy
  2. Passport Copy (Front and Back page)
  3. Foreign Address proof/ Indian Address proof (For ex: if passport has foreign address then provide Indian Address proof)
  4. Bank Proof (cancelled cheque or latest bank Statement from NRE or NRO Account)
  5. Person of Indian origin (PIO) or Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) certificates. This is only required for investors who are not Indian Nationals.
You can just upload these documents on Upwardly and we will do the rest.

What is the taxation for NRIs in India for investing in Indian Mutual Funds?

Taxation for NRIs for investing in Indian Mutual Funds is same as taxation of resident Indians. The only difference is that there is a 10% TDS (Tax Deducted at Source ) for NRIs at the time of redemptions.
Equity investments in India are taxed at 15% for short term (less than 1 year of holding) and 10% for the long term (more than 1 year of holding).
Debt investments in india are taxed as per the tax slab for the short term (less than 3 years of holding) and at 20% post indexation benefits for the long term (more than 3 years of holding). The tax indexation benefit is a great way to reduce your tax outgo and generate much better returns than Fixed Deposits for NRI clients.
India has signed this treaty with the US & Canada, so any tax paid in India can be claimed as relief in the US/Canada tax returns. Click here to find if your India has a DTAA treaty with your tax-residency- country.
