I'm a New Zealander as you may see.
Do we need to get a U.S tax code?

Thank you

Hi Bryce,

No, where a supplier requests a tax id they are only verifying you as a registered business. So you will need to be a registered business to have that tax id, but a registered NZ number will be fine. When you submit the number to the supplier for account verification, just confirm your personal details so they know you are NZ based.
