No Tax for Nepali Migrant Workers
However, if a citizen returns from foreign employment with a labor permit that exceeds six months and provides proof of it, they will be eligible to have one mobile phone registered by the Telecommunication Authority free of charge for their personal use.
Additionally, the government has implemented a one percent service charge on migrant workers. According to the Aarthik Vidhayak, individuals licensed to operate foreign employment businesses are required to submit a foreign employment service fee equivalent to one percent of the amount collected from individuals pursuing foreign employment.
It is mentioned in the Aarthik Vidhayak that the amount will be utilized for the benefit of individuals pursuing foreign employment. The foreign employment professional is responsible for depositing the service fee into the revenue account by the 25th of each month, and the corresponding details should be submitted to the relevant revenue office. The Aarthik Vidhayak specifies that failure to file the fee will result in the imposition of a 15 percent interest rate.
