Mumbai, India, May 15, 2024 – Investing in US markets has become increasingly popular among Indian investors as more and more individuals have started realizing the benefits of diversifying their investments geographically. However, filing tax returns for US investing was a cumbersome process as besides capital gains, investors are also required to furnish a series of Schedules that outline an investor’s foreign asset holdings. To simplify the process, Vested started offering easy Tax Documents to its customers starting in 2020.

The entire process is extremely simple. An investor has to simply log in to Vested Finance platform, visit the ‘Tax Documents’ section, select ‘File with ClearTax,’ login / sign up on ClearTax, and then all the tax documents generated by Vested, including capital gains, schedule of Foreign Assets, schedule of Foreign Income will be auto captured on the ClearTax portal in INR as per income tax regulations.

The investor has to then provide additional details of their income tax return, such as personal details, other income sources, capital gains from different sources, etc., and then file their ITR within a few clicks.
