TRACES or TDS Reconciliation Analysis and Correction Enabling System is a web-based application from the Income Tax Department of India used for TDS administration and implementation. Form 16A is a certificate of deduction for tax at source issued if tax is deducted under any provision except section 192 of the Income Tax Act. Typically each Company or Deductor has hundreds of suppliers for which the Company will need to generate and download the TDS Certificate from the TRACES website and send it to Suppliers as an email attachment. This is a repetitive and time-consuming process that is prone to errors due to the large volume of supplier documents and emails.
Thirdware has used the Automation Anywhere RPA platform to automate this process. Once the user logs into the Traces website & triggers the bot, the bot checks availability status of Request number configured, extracts PDF files from zip file downloaded using Traces PDF converter, enters digital signature in PDFs through DSC utility and finally sends the Emails to Users.
