What is a TIN?

The Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is a unique number that identifies a specific individual (or business) for the purposes of paying taxes. As tax payment is mandatory for all individuals and businesses, everyone needs to have a unique TIN. However, this article will deal with TIN for businesses.

Who needs a TIN?

As mentioned above since tax payment is compulsory, every business must have its own unique TIN.

In July 2020, the CAC announced that upon successful registration of companies under Part A i.e. limited liability companies, a TIN would be automatically assigned to the company. However, the notification by the CAC does not cover other business organisations e.g. business names, therefore organisations like business names will still have to register with the FIRS directly.
