How to make Pan card in Nepal
Any “person” who asks for a Permanent Account Number (PAN) will be given one by the Inland Revenue Department in the form of a laminated card. All of the “person’s” transactions can be connected to the department using PAN. Tax payments, TDS/TCS credits, income returns, particular transactions, correspondence, and so on are examples of these transactions. The PAN acts as the person’s special identification number with the tax department a result.
PAN was developed to enable easy data recovery and matching of information relating to taxpayers’ investment, loan raising, and other business activities collected from various sources, both internal and external, for detecting and combating tax evasion and expanding the tax base. These documents include tax payments, evaluations, tax demands, tax nonpayments, and many others.
Let us remind those who are still unsure of the procedure, as well as where and how to apply for PAN registration, that obtaining your PAN is only a few steps away. The steps to obtaining your PAN in Nepal are as follows:
- Go to the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) website, select the ‘Services’ page, then click the ‘Tax-Payer Portal’ link.
- Then select the “Registration (PAN, VAT, EXCISE)” tab located under the “Online E-services” section on the left-hand side of the screen. While doing this, select the same tab’s “+” symbol to extend the vertical menu.
- Find the “Application for Registration” tab and click it now.
- After that, a registration form will show up on the home screen. Fill out the requested information now, and then select the IRD office closest to you in the “Verifying Offices” section.
- You will now be given a submission number after clicking the “OK” button. Take note of it.
- After noting your submission number, click the “Continue” option.
- Finally, the screen will display the PAN application electronic form. Completely fill out the form using Nepali (Nepali Unicode), and attach your photo and any requested papers.
- Once you have finished filling out the form, click ‘Save’. You can log in again using your registration information if you need to update or edit any details or information you entered in the form. Your account, password, and submission number are required for this.
- Next, click the “Submit” button. Don’t forget to click the “Print” button as well.
- Visit the IRD office in your region after receiving a printed copy of the completed PAN application form. Bring two passport-sized pictures of the applicant as well as any other valid identification documents or citizenship certificates in the case of overseas applicants.
- Send in your application there.
- The IRD office will then confirm your information and issue you a PAN card. Your unique account number will typically take a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the number of applicants.
