Everyone who owns a bank account in Zambia, is required to present their Tax Payers Identification Number (TPIN) to their banks. This is a legal requirement. Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has given 31 March 2017 as the registration deadline, after which bank accounts without TPINs are supposed to be frozen.


Here is a step by step guide in how to get your TPIN without leaving your chair. Before we start you will need a soft copy of your NRC (PDF preferably) and a sketch of where you stay (you can draw this on a plain paper and scan it). Once you have those items you are good to go.

So, that is how you get a TPIN. You should receive the certificate within 48 hours. If you do not receive by then you can give ZRA a call on 0971-281111 or 0962-225111. They have great customer service and will help.
