Procedure for the issuance of the NIT (Tax ID)

We simplify the proceedings in order to provide you with better services for the creation of your company

Decree 589 of April 11, 2016, and Decree 768 of May 6, 2016 changed the requirements for the registration and update of the Single Fiscal Registrar (RUT).  Therefore, starting in May 11, 2016, the process for the assignment of NITs through the CCB has been simplified for both individuals as well as for legal persons.

    In order for individuals and legal persons to request to be registered into the RUT, through the CCB, entrepreneurs must deliver the documentation listed in Resolution 52 of 2016.

     

    If the documentation is complete, the DIAN will assign the final NIT via web services, and will deliver Form 001, corresponding to the RUT, to be printed at the Chamber of Commerce; this form will be printed once by the CCB service representative. Therefore, the requirement to open a new account with a financial institution and the generation of Form 1648 with a provisional NIT have been eliminated.

     

    Requirements for individuals:

    • Printed Single Fiscal Registrar (RUT) form, filled out through the National Tax Authority's (DIAN) portal, which includes the annotation "FOR PROCESSING AT THE CHAMBER".
    • Providing the original and one copy of the requester's personal ID. When the proceeding is done by a proxy, a copy of the proxy's personal ID must be provided, along with a copy of the beneficiary's personal ID; also, the original version of the power of attorney or a simple copy of it must be attached, along with a certification of its term as issued by a notary, whenever the power of attorney's effective term is longer than six (6) months.

     

    Requirements for legal persons:
