How do I add or update my tax registration number (for example, a TRN, VAT number, VAT ID, or VAT registration number) or business legal address on my account?

If you have a tax registration number (TRN), such as a VAT ID, you can update the TRN and associated business legal address connected with your account in the Billing and Cost Management dashboard on the Tax Settings page. If you are signed in as the master account of an organization, you can also view and edit the tax registration numbers for all linked accounts.

When updating your TRN or business legal address, note the following:

  • If you do not have a TRN, or your country is not available in Tax Settings, AWS uses the country associated with your billing address, account address, and default payment method to assess your tax liability.
  • If you're not sure which country to choose for these fields, consult your tax advisor.
  • If you are in Europe and receive special status or relief from VAT, contact AWS Support and attach applicable certificates issued by the tax authorities in your country. If you do not have a certificate, provide information about your special status or relief in your case, and include specific sections of tax legislation that are applicable to your organization.
  • If you are in the United States, see Does AWS charge US sales tax?
