A tax or taxpayer identification number (TIN), is used for tax reporting purposes. Trading212 is required to collect this information in order to comply with financial regulations.
TINs could usually be found on various types of documents depending on their issuing country:
- on official identity documents (such as ID cards, passports, driving licenses, etc.) and usually match the personal number;
- on other documents (such as health insurance cards, civil tax evaluation forms, etc.);
If you are uncertain about your TIN format or where you can find it, please refer to your local tax authority to receive the most relevant information.
For example, the TIN number for UK residents is the National Insurance Number (NIN). You can find it on your payslip, P60, or letters about tax, pensions and benefits. You can also find it through your personal tax account and download a confirmation letter.
