How to Get TIN (Number) Online in the Philippines?

A time would come that you really need a TIN (Tax Identification Number). TIN is required for tax purposes. Like for example, if you want to start a business (registered as Sole Proprietorship), or you want to avail loan, credit card, passport or visa, it requires tax documents such as TIN. Like me, my stockbroker requires me to submit my TIN. This means I cannot invest in stocks without the TIN. Whatever your reasons are, here's a guide on how to get your TIN online in the Philippines (free).

Take note: This registration process is only applicable to Single Proprietors, Professionals or Self-Employed. Issuance of TIN in this process is free of charge. The BIR online registration system will instantly give and send you the TIN to your email after you completely sign-up registration forms. That's why, you need an active email to receive the confirmation link and the TIN.

Remember: Possession of more than one (1) Tax Identification Number (TIN) is criminally punishable by law. So, you need to secure or get one TIN only.

Step 4

You are now proceeding to Registration Page 1:

TIN Online Registration Page 1a

In this registration page, Registering Office, taxpayer's name including the Date of Birth and Date of Registration are automatically filled-out by default. 

Important Reminders for the following fields:

RDO Code - will be automatically filled-out after you choose your Province and City/Municipality under Residence Address. That's why you need to choose Province and City/Municipality first in order for the RDO Code to automatically appear.

Province - choose which province are you living.

City/Municipality - choose which City/Municipality you live.

District - you can leave it blank.

Barangay - put the name of the Barangay you live.

Street, Substreet, Vicinity - you can leave them blank.

Zip Code - it's required to put the zip code of your city/municipality

Telephone - your telephone or mobile phone number is also required to put.

Below is the continuation screenshot of the Registration Page 1. As you can see, Business Address is required to filled-out. Just check the box [ Use residence address as business address ].
