Budget 2013: Tax for NRIs receiving royalties/ fees from India to go up
March, 07th 2013

Budget 2013 saw a steep hike in the tax rate on royalties and fees for technical services that an Indian company pays to a NRI or a Foreign Company.

Budget 2013 saw a steep hike in the tax rate on royalties and fees for technical services that an Indian company pays to a Non Resident Indian or a Foreign Company. The rate went up from 10 per cent to 25 per cent.
