Can Indian investor create brokerage account in USA?


Last Update 3 jaar geleden

Yes, an Indian investor can create a US brokerage account as a foreign account holder. 

You will be liable to pay taxes based on US brokerage account income directly in India. Your investment falls under the RBI guideline “Liberalized Remittance Scheme (LRS)” which allows a maximum of $250,000 investment every year.
