Taxpayer Registration Number (TRN)

The Taxpayer Registration Number (TRN) was implemented in 1996. This system facilitates the automated registration and assignment of a single unique number to each taxable entity, such as individuals, partnerships, companies, and other business organizations.
Among the many benefits this computerized system offers are:

  • Identification of each taxpaying entity by the use of a unique number
  • Easy access to a reliable database
  • Easy identification of the nature or type of business, geographical location and ownership

In 2007, we developed and implemented a TRN Validation Web Service facility, which allows entities subscribing to the service to automatically validate TRNs over the Internet.
