What is the INN number for Russian companies?

Several months ago I added Feedjit to this blog. It is very helpful if you are interested in understanding of core problems of your auditory.

Among recent search phrases I found simple but important question “What is the INN code for Russian companies?” I think it’ll be reasonable to give brief and simple answer in a short article.

INN (Russian “Individualiy Nomer Nalogoplatelshika”) is an Individual Tax Number of every Russian company or person.

INN code of a company has 10 digits:

    • 1-4 – Identification number of Federal Tax Service department
    • 5-9 – Unique number of tax payer in the Federal Tax Service department
    • 10 – Control number for validation of the INN code

Corporate records of Russian companies are available at https://egrul.nalog.ru/index.html. Indicate INN or name of the company for the search.

INN code of a private person has 12 digits:

  • 1-4 – Identification number of Federal Tax Service department
  • 5-10 – Unique number of tax payer in the Federal Tax Service department
  • 11-12 – Control numbers for validation of the INN code

In general, INN of private individuas are not available to the public.

If the subject acts (acted) as the shareholder or director of Russian company, his/her INN can be found in corporate records of the appropriate company.

Is it possible that the company doesn’t have INN but works legally in Russia?

No. There’re no exceptions.

Private entrepreneur, private company, public company, brunch of foreign company and others must have INN.

I checked INN of my contractor and it corresponds to the company with a different name. Is it ok?

No. It is a scam.

I have INN of the individual, is it enough to identify him?

You can use INN of the individual to conduct corporate records search and check his outstanding debts.

For all other checks either discreet of legitimate you need his passport number.
