How To Obtain/Register/Apply A TIN Number In Rwanda
A Tax Payer Identification Number (TIN) is a requirement in Rwanda just like it is in other countries when it comes to those who wish to fulfill their Tax requirements to the Government, and the entire processing of issuing such numbers are determined by the instructions from the Commissioner General of the Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA) just like it is in other East African Community countries like Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
The same Tax Payer Identification Number is assigned to those individuals or persons or even businesses owning goods and services subject to paying taxes by the Tax Administration and as per the laws of Rwanda, a Tax payer is required to keep the issued TIN number on all corresponding documents, commercial documents, other proofs one files with the tax administration and on any other tax declaration documents.
When it comes to the application process in order to obtain a Taxpayer Identification number by anyone, Rwanda is believed to have the quickest process among most countries if not all since the whole process withe everything inclusive can be done in only one day and in a period of only 20 minutes to those who are committed and determined to getting their TIN numbers.
