How do I add or update my tax registration number or business legal address for my AWS account?

Last updated: 2020-12-21

I want to add or update my tax registration number (for example, a TRN, VAT number, VAT ID, GSTIN, or VAT registration number) or business legal address on my AWS account.

Short description

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 AWS Billing and Cost Management console on the Tax Settings page. If you're signed in as the payer account of an organization, then 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 don't have a TRN, or your country isn't available in the Tax Settings page, AWS uses the address associated with the account's default payment method, the account's contact address, and the account's billing address to determine the account's tax jurisdiction.
  • If you're not sure which country to choose for these fields, then consult your tax advisor.
  • If you're in Europe and receive special status or relief from VAT, then contact AWS Support and attach applicable certificates issued by the tax authorities in your country. If you don't have a certificate, then provide information about your special status or relief in your case, and include specific sections of tax legislation that are applicable to your organization.

  • You can enable tax settings inheritance to use your tax registration information for linked accounts in your organization.
