Seychelles TIN number guide


In Seychelles, taxation primarily applies to businesses rather than individuals. Income tax, which is imposed on employee emoluments through withholding tax managed by employers, requires the Tax Identification Number (TIN) of the employer for payment purposes. Employees themselves do not receive a TIN; instead, only the employer possesses this identifier. The Seychelles Revenue Commission (SRC) exclusively issues TINs, which are utilized for all tax payments and are displayed on the Business Activity Statement, a mandatory form submitted with monthly payments. Each TIN is automatically generated by the computerized system and is distinct to each taxpayer. Once a business ceases operations, its TIN cannot be duplicated or reissued.


The Tax Identification Number (TIN) is a nine-digit identifier generated through an algorithm, ensuring compliance with a checksum requirement.
