If you have a valid PAN Card and hold an NRE/NRO account, we will help you setup your Scripbox account,
after which you can invest in Indian Mutual Funds. We will help processing your KYC(Know Your Customer) if required - completely online and FREE
The following documents are required to invest in Mutual Funds in India: Pan Card Copy Passport Copy (Front and Back page) Foreign Address proof/ Indian Address proof (For ex: if passport has foreign address then provide Indian Address proof) Bank Proof (cancelled cheque or latest bank Statement from NRE or NRO Account) 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 and we will do the rest.
NRIs can invest through either NRE or NRO account in Indian Mutual Funds. While creating an account with Scripbox, you can choose either of the two options. NRIs who wish to invest through both NRE and NRO account can invest through two separate accounts (one for NRE and other for NRO). You could add the second account as a family account for convenient access and tracking
Taxation for NRIs investing in Indian Mutual Funds is same as taxation of resident Indians. The only difference is that for NRIs, there is a TDS of 15% for short term (< 1 year) and 10% for long term (> 1 year) in case of Equities and TDS of 30% for short term (< 3 years) and 20% post indexation benefit for long term (> 3 years) in case of Debt/Gold funds at the time of redemptions. In case the TDS amount is more than the actual taxation, the investor can claim refund of the excess TDS at the time of filing the returns. 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 double tax avoidance agreement (DTAA) with many countries in the world. This saves you from paying taxes in both India and in the country of your residence

Your investments records are kept safe with the Mutual Fund house that you are investing in and Scripbox provides you the convenience of investing in the top mutual funds from the platform.

NRIs can have a Non Resident External (NRE) and Non Resident Ordinary (NRO) account to manage their incomes earned abroad and in India. Both are rupee designated accounts. NRE accounts for income deemed to have been earned out of India and NRO accounts for income deemed to have been earned from India.Repatriation of money from NRE accounts can be done freely while there are some restrictions on the same from NRO account.Also, NRE accounts are tax exempted while NRO accounts are not.
Yes, you can. There is only a limited set of Mutual Fund Companies through which you will be able to invest.We will be enabling support for US and Canada NRIs shortly.
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. We take care of this as part of our registration process.
