AWS collects Tax Registration Numbers (“TRNs”) associated with Value Added Tax (“VAT”) in certain countries to determine your status, as a business (B2B) or private / non-business customer (B2C), as this is a key factor to determine AWS’ liability to charge VAT on your service charges.

The TRN is also known as the Tax Identification Number (“TIN”), VAT Number, VAT ID, or VAT Registration Number. The format and name depends on the country.

If a TRN is accepted by AWS, you will find the country listed on the dropdown list of the Manage Tax Registration button on the Tax Settings page. Once you select your country, the acceptable TRN formats for that country will automatically show on the screen.

Specifically for EMEA, you can find here the list of countries where AWS Europe collects TRNs, as well as the name and format of such TRNs.

  • If you have a TRN, please visit the Tax Settings page of the AWS Billing Console and confirm/update the TRN and Business Legal Address for your account(s).
  • If you have a TRN associated with local VAT that is in a different format, please contact your regular AWS account representative or Customer Support via the AWS Support Center.
  • If you do not have a TRN or we do not display your country on the dropdown menu in the Manage Tax Registration screen, visit the My Account page of the AWS Console to confirm/update the account’s contact address. Additionally, please visit the Payment Methods page of the AWS Console to confirm/update the account’s billing address. For guidance on how to update your account's addresses, see here.
