Taxes are part and parcel of everyday commercial transactions. When you go shopping, irrespective of the shop’s size, you’ll always be sold the goods at prices that include taxes. The question probing your mind will be, “How do I know that this person will then deposit the taxes with the Government? Is he/she charging me and then keeping the money to himself?” These thoughts often used to leave our minds in a state of unrest until we’re distracted by something else. Moreover, there was no way to verify this information properly. In some cases, the customers would get fooled by being provided with a fake GSTIN on the bills.

With technology advancement and the availability of online search tools, the TIN (Tax Identification Number) can be verified so as to ensure the tax money isn’t just going into the pockets of the dealer.

What is TINXSYS?

The Tax Information Exchange System (TINXSYS) was formulated to assist the Commercial Taxes Departments of the various States and Union Territories in keeping track of inter-state transactions in an effective manner. It enables them to have an exchange of data and ensure that there is no evasion of tax taking place in any inter-state dealings. It is a centralised repository of information containing details regarding the dealers and connecting the Commercial Taxes Departments of 34 States and Union Territories of India, excluding Andaman, Nicobar and Lakshadweep.

Key Solution Design Principles

Rapid Innovation

The way in which the IT infrastructure of TINXSYS has been set up provides for a significant reduction in time lag with regard to any upgrading in any case where the Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) decides to upgrade the product in the near future. The computing infrastructure necessary for the upgrade can be set up and ready in terms of minutes and hours rather than days and weeks.

Core Business Focus

Since the IT infrastructure is in place already to handle upgrades, the undivided attention and focus can be thrown into the core business activities.

Better Security

In comparison with anything available in-house, the security features are far superior in this case. The service agreement ensures that the cloud service provider may provide security for the applications and data that are stored.

Increase in stability, reliability and support

The service provider assures you that the infrastructure is reliable and meets the general Service Level Agreements, thus providing stability, reliability and support.

Reduction in capital expense and additional costs

As the infrastructure is already in place and is robust, there is no need for any additional expense to be borne with regard to an online data center, since there is no need for the same.

Improves Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Cyber attacks are a constant threat to any data that has an online presence, thus hampering the ability of the business to function effectively. However, since it offers better security and the feature of disaster recovery, the continuity of business transactions is not affected since it aims to be available 24×7.


  • A dealer can verify the counterparty interstate dealer from any other State.
  • When a dealer submits a claim for concession, he/she submits certain Statutory forms in support of such claim to the Commercial Taxes Department. In order to verify these forms and ensure that the concessions are rightly claimed, the TINXSYS may be used.
  • Provides MIS (Management Information System) Reports and BI (Business Intelligence) Reports.
  • Enables the GSTN to monitor and study the trends in interstate trade movements.
