Government eases norms for obtaining PAN/TAN card for corporate assessees

IANS/New Delhi 14 Apr 18 | 05:20 PM

The government on Saturday said the Certificate of Incorporation (COI) issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) is adequate proof of Permanent Account Number (PAN) or Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number (TAN) for a company.

"Finance Act, 2018, amended section 139A of the Income-tax Act, 1961, and removed the requirement of issuing PAN in the form of a laminated card," an official statement said, adding, "hence, it is clarified that PAN and TAN mentioned in the COI issued by MCA shall also be treated as sufficient proof of PAN and TAN for the said company assessees."

"In these cases, the COI issued by MCA contains a mention of both PAN and TAN," the statement noted.
