Any desi🐋 who have or continue to work from India for a US based role. I have been doing it for several months and absolutely love it!

Nope, I plan on spending 6 months+1 day in US.


Thought so! It’s difficult to do it on visa

If you are on a cross border assignment I'm sure you can do it - there's plenty of international projects that US person is on a gig at a diff country and they get paid their US Salary and maybe even a nice international per diem to boot with the paid fly backs. But you'd have to have some pretty niche skills for the client to pay it or on a really profitable gig for the project to absorb the cost.


I thought in most instances income is earned where services is performed. Your big four firm is earning income in India by having a remote employee. Very soon Modhi and Indian income tax department will be contacting your big four for % of income they made by having you work in India and oh also ask them to file corporate tax returns.


Why can’t they know ? You crossed the border and India have records that you are in India. They can easily pull records, if required.

Rub it in .. why don’t you.. lol Jokes aside, what are the tax implications of doing this long term since you are not performing work in a us geography anymore? That’s what I was told is the biggest roadblock in working remotely from a different country.

Idk. Why risk it.

You don’t run into any issues with taxation? I imagine it must be hard to get sign off to work from India?

Not allowed . Did you care to consult immigration, legal or tax before doing this?

Putting your location as US when you're in India does not sound legal and can get you into deep trouble!!

@OP, which big4 ?
