Common Financial Pitfalls faced by NRIs


One of the most common financial pitfalls for NRIs is not understanding their tax obligations in both India and their country of residence. NRIs are taxed on their global income, but there may be tax treaties in place that reduce or eliminate double taxation.

Another common pitfall for NRIs is investing without a plan. NRIs may be tempted to invest in assets that they are familiar with, such as Indian real estate or gold. While making investment decisions, it is critical to take into account one’s investment objectives, risk tolerance, and time horizon.
