What is a PAN Card?

India is one of the world’s fastest growing economies, and every year many thousands of workers from around the world move to India to start work on a temporary or permanent basis. Trying to understand the tax and administration systems in a new country can be confusing, but one of the key pieces of paperwork which anyone working in India needs is the PAN card, or Permanent Account Number.

Information on a PAN Card

The PAN numbers are issued by the Indian government’s Income Tax Department, and the PAN card application form is online to make it easier for new workers to register. The PAN number is unique to the individual and even if you change name through marriage or move house while you are living in India, the PAN will not change. PAN is not proof of Indian citizenship but can be used as identification as the card has the photo of the holder on it. You will need a PAN number for most financial transactions in India such as opening a bank account, receiving a salary or fees as a consultant, and for selling and buying property or other assets with a high value. PAN numbers are used to check that the correct amount of tax is being paid, and although having a PAN card is not compulsory, it is almost impossible to live and work in India without one. If you have an Aadhaar biometric identity card already, or are in the process of applying for one, you will still have to apply separately for a PAN card, but when completing the PAN card application form there is a section for Aadhaar data to allow the two records to be linked. PAN cards can also be issued to companies, associations, trusts and other organisations to allow them to make financial transactions legally too.
