The Representative Assessee is a person who acts as the legal representative for another under sections 160 (1) i) and 163(g). The law relating to representatives assessors can be found in ITA section 160 which allows them when assessing non-resident taxpayers, like you!
Under Indian tax laws there are many different types of individuals that may have contact with outside parties such us NRIs or even other companies themselves so they need someone able enough at dealing effectively & professionally across borders
If an individual is unable or unwilling to complete their own income tax, they can appoint another person on behalf of themselves so that the assessment goes through.
The most common reasons which this appointment occurs include:
- The taxpayer is not present in India.
- The taxpayer is an NRI.
- Any other reason.
If a person wants to become an assessor for NRIs, they must firstly be willing and able-bodied. Secondly the representative assessee takes on liability as if it were his own money being taxed; however there’s no need that he receive any income from those individuals because tax would still apply even though its going through someone else’s wealth (the NRI). If this sounds complicated than don’t worry! There are two types of representatives: taxable ones where you’ll have taxes withheld at source like salaried employees do but will also file returns every year along side.
