What does the estimated tax amount include when I place an order for shipping to India?

In accordance with the local goods and services tax (GST) regulation, your purchases will be taxed using the applicable GST rate(s).

What type of taxes are applied to my order?

Depending on the GST identification number (GSTIN) and the billing address that you provided in the e-invoice section during the checkout process, a combination of central GST (CGST), state GST (SGST) or integrated GST (IGST) could apply. Your e-invoice will show the type(s) of GST charged on your purchases.

Am I eligible for a tax exemption if my business is located in a special economic zone (SEZ)?

Why is there a warning or error on the GSTIN that I provided during the checkout process?

A warning or error may appear for one of these reasons:

  • The state code in the GSTIN does not match the state associated with your address in the e-invoice section.
  • Government records state that the GSTIN is either not valid or inactive.
  • The SEZ status is incorrect according to the government’s GST website. To proceed, validate the status and try again.
  • The postal code is incorrect according to the government’s GST website. To proceed, validate the postal code and try again.

Please confirm that your GSTIN matches the GSTIN registration certificate issued by the government. You can go to this website to validate your GSTIN.

How do I review tax charges on my order?

No. TI does not issue e-invoices for purchases in USD currency. To receive an e-invoice, please check out in INR currency.

What address and GSTIN do I need to provide in the e-invoice section during the checkout process?

If your business entity has multiple GSTINs, then provide the GSTIN to which you want the invoices issued in the e-invoice section. Provide the address that corresponds to the billing or invoicing address for the GSTIN. By default, the address provided in the billing address section is pre-populated onto the e-invoice section. It is possible to update this address.

What is a PAN? Why does it appear in the e-invoice? Can I update my PAN?

The permanent account number (PAN) is a unique 10-digit alphanumeric number issued by India’s income tax department to taxpayers. The PAN is pre-populated in the e-invoice section based on the third to 12th characters in your GSTIN. If you change your PAN, you also need to update your GSTIN accordingly in the e-invoice section.
