By now you should at least know something about a TPIN. Do you have reason to believe you have a TPIN and you don’t know how to check without spending money? The good news is that you can check if you have a TPIN without having to visit by going online.
You should know that the Zambia Revenue Authority(ZRA) in 2017 issued 270 000 Tax Payers Identification Numbers (TPINs). However, prior to the campaign, some individuals were given TPINs.
TPINs were issued to people that import goods into the country and those registering their businesses. If you are one of those and are still worried about getting one, you should consider trying to first check if you already have one!
Here is how you can check for your TPIN. The best way is to use your National Registration Card(NRC) Number.
- Firstly you have to go the ZRA Website.
When on the home page, do look out for “Other e-services” and under the services select the ‘taxpayers search.’
- When that is done you will land on the page that looks like this!
- Enter your NRC Number with the slash (/) and then press enter. Once that is done you wait for the results to be processed. You should be able to have a display of this kind. (Don’t mind the one below, digits used were deliberately for display).
In case you want to try using your name, go ahead, a lot of names including yours appear, but this might not be the case for everyone. As mentioned earlier the best and effective way to check is through the use of your NRC Number.
In case you haven’t gotten yours yet, here is the link on how to go about the TPIN and all you need to know about it.
Ensure you do it before 31st March, 2018 which is the last day!
Go ahead and try checking your TPIN online and let’s hear your feedback!
