TAN registration refers to the process of obtaining a Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number (TAN) in India. TAN is a unique 10-digit alphanumeric code issued by the Income Tax Department of India to entities responsible for deducting and collecting taxes at source.

Here are some key points to understand about TAN registration:

  1. Purpose: TAN registration is primarily required for entities that are responsible for deducting and collecting taxes at source. These entities include employers, business entities, and individuals who make specified payments like salary, interest, rent, contractor payments, etc., and are required to deduct tax at the source before making such payments.

  2. TDS/TCS Compliance: TAN registration enables the entity to comply with the provisions of Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) and Tax Collected at Source (TCS). The entity is assigned a unique TAN, which is used for reporting and remitting the taxes deducted or collected to the Income Tax Department.
