Hello,

I want to know if it´s necessary to have a tax ID for being a reseller if I'm not a US citizen.

Best Regards

Hi Luis,

Usually you just need to provide something equivalent in your country, for example your VAT registration in the EU or the UK, or your ABN or GST registration in Australia and New Zealand.

Hope this helps! Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with. :)

Shane, thanks for the answer. And what if if I have a social security number that is mine when I used to work in US a long time ago. It that helps?

Hi Luis

In some cases you may not even require the tax id if you aren't a US resident, but if they still insist. If they do still require, then whatever your national tax id is will usually be enough to satisfy the requirement. It has to be a business related tax id to prove you are a registered business.
