Russia TIN number guide

INN (Taxpayer Personal Identification Number)

The INN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) is essential for all tax-related matters in Russia. Individuals can obtain their INN from the tax authority based on various circumstances, including their permanent or temporary residence, or the location of their immovable property or vehicle if they lack permanent or temporary residency in Russia.

Russian legal entities receive their INN from the tax authority at their registered location.

Foreign legal entities operating in Russia via branches, representative offices, or other separate business units have their INN assigned by the tax authority at the location of such activities during registration.
