Most banks make you provide this right away, but bunq gives you 90 days to send your Tax Identification Number (TIN). So it's always the most convenient for you.
When you open a bunq account, we ask you to provide your personal tax residency information.
What's a Tax Identification Number (TIN)?
A Tax Identification Number, or TIN, is a personal number identifier issued by fiscal authorities in countries where you're a tax resident. In other words, it's a number that has to be reported for tax purposes.
When you provide us with yours, please remember that only alphanumeric numbers are allowed (so no special characters such as - / . )
Why am I required to provide my Tax Number(s)?

bunq Business users
If you have a Business account with us, you will need to provide us with your personal Tax Identification Number rather than the one of your company. This is because we always need to verify your Personal account in order to activate your Business account. You can find more details about that here.
Still have questions?
If you have trouble finding your Tax Identification Number, you can get in touch with the local authorities or contact our support with any questions.
