• Does software companies should have TIN number?

Hi,

We are an IT service company located in Hyderabad. We generally purchase laptops, desktops and other electronic goods from vendors. Do we have to mention TIN number in our purchase orders?

Is TIN number need to be applied?

Hi,

Please clarify whether you purchase the goods for resale in trade. Or just for your office use in order to further provide services using those computers and laptops.

If you are only a service provider than no TIN no is to be applied.

Hi,

Selling of Applications would mean in other terms selling of software and on that VAT is applicable.

Only if we provide purely services and not transfer of goods or right to use the goods (in your case software, applications) than Service tax would be applicable and not VAT.

IN that case you do need to apply for TIN no.

For any further clarifications. You may write or call us.

Thanks & Regards

Dear Sir,

Do you sell softwares in the CD/DVD etc. Or you provide it online. If you sale softwares through CD/DVD etc then VAT is liable and you have to take TIN number.

Please feel free to call/revert in case of any doubts
