Canadian Tax ID SOLVED: Get your "Business Number"!
So, as a Canadian, I was pursuing my "Tax Identification Number" to sign up to Affiliate Networks in the US. Example: Amazon.com...
It turns out the CRA calls it your "Business Number".
So, it is the exact same thing as a 'tax identification number'...9 digits.
Below is the original WA Question I posted:
So with good help there, a good hint from Annarella, and especially this spot-on advice from Bigbroian...I have now secured my 9-digit Business Number!
Here's how, in Ian's words:
To get the TIN go to the link you have above, scroll down the page to the section "How do you register for a GST/HST account?", make sure the tab selected is the one that says "online". Click on on the blue button at the bottom the section that reads "Register Online". Click on it and, when the next page comes up, click on #4. A window will pop up then click on "Register Now" button. From there, just follow the instructions and supply the information requested. Hope this helps
Thanks again, Ian!
Well folks; I'm here to say it definitely helped the likes of me, so that's GOOD:))
See you all around!
UPDATE & GOOD NEWS:
I just gave Amazon in the US, my 9-digit Business Number.
I proceeded to fill out the 2 things they require, Tax information (which asks for that Business Number), and Payment information.
It is smooth sailing!
During the Tax filling out part, you are presented with a W8-BEN form.
You basically just have to make sure the info is correct on it.
This is easy!
Done that now.
UPDATE& MORE GOOD NEWS:
I have just completed these exact same requirements for Flexoffers and ShareAsale.
It was every bit as easy:)
