New format of tax identification number
The Cyprus tax department announced that the format of the tax identification number (TIN) assigned to new registrations in the tax department's registry has been changed from 27 March 2023 onwards.
The new ΤΙΝ format consist of:
- Nine characters, with the first eight being numeric and the last being a Latin letter (English), as the alphabetic control character
All new TINs start with the number six (e.g., 60000000A)
It is important to note that the new TIN format is a random number with a control character at the end and does not contain any identifying elements (such as an ID number or company registration number) related to the user.
