What is a Tax Identification Number (TIN)?

A TIN is an identifying number used for tax purposes to deal with the tax administration in a particular country. For example, Australia’s relevant TIN would include our Tax File Number (TFN) which Australians normally quote when completing annual tax returns. Most foreign countries will have an equivalent functional tax identification number.

If you are unsure what your TIN equivalent is, a useful resource can be found at: OECD Automatic Exchange Portal – Tax identification numbers or you should contact your legal or tax adviser for further guidance. We are unable to give you advice in relation to your TIN.
