Tax for NRI who is using his money earned abroad to sustain himself in India now?



I used to work in Singapore for 5 years and now I am in India and have started a business of my own.
There is very little revenue from my new business, so there is no income I am drawing from it as of now. I manage my living expenses in India using the money I earned in Singapore.

In such a situation, do I need to pay any tax to Indian Government?

  1. Tax system in India works from Financial Year to Financial Year. If you had paid your Taxes in Singapore, I don’t think you will be asked to pay taxes here as you would be a NRI for the Last 5 years.

    However from this year onwards you will be required to pay taxes on the Business Profits & Interest earned from the banks.

    Check the official tax website for the definition of Non Resident Indian.
