The Permanent Account Number (PAN) is essential for making payment of tax
in accordance with the Indian Income Tax Act of 1961. Whereas, the Tax
Account Number (TAN) is recommended when a company is required to
deduct or collect taxes at source, as per the Section 203A of the Indian Income
Tax Act, 1961. All companies and firms which are required to make financial
transactions in forms of salaries to employees, consultancy fees, contractual
payments, taxable project fiancés, and so on, essentially need TAN
registration. Thus, for issuing TCS/TDS certificates, filing TDS/TCS returns,
and making TCS/TDS payment Challan by a company, this TAN is
indispensable. The Income Tax Department of India has now recommended
quarterly submission of TDS and TCS Statements by the concerned business
or professional entities.

These PAN and TAN registrations are well-facilitated and responsibly
regulated by the National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) of India. The
Application Forms for PAN and TAN registrations are Form-49A and Form-
49B, respectively; which are to be submitted to any TIN Facilitation Centers.
