Manage Tax IDs

Learn which Tax IDs Monite supports and how to manage them.

Overview

A Tax ID is an identification number for businesses used for tax purposes. By associating the related Tax IDs to customers, it is possible to display the customer’s Tax ID on the receivables.

Businesses can have one, multiple, or no Tax IDs depending on the country and regulatory requirements.

Tax IDs names and formats vary from country to country. In the EU, for example, it is referred to as “VAT identification number” or VATIN, whereas Canadian businesses have a BN (Business Number) and sales tax numbers.
