Our company Independent legal partnership assists in issuing BIN (Business Identification Number) to non-residents (LLC, OJSC, LLC, LLP, etc.) in the Republic of Kazakhstan. With our help a foreign company can obtain a BIN without visiting the Republic of Kazakhstan.

          By power of attorney specialists of Independent legal partnership Company will fulfil all necessary formalities, fill in and submit tax application, receive and send you the registration certificate of registration of non-resident as a taxpayer.

 Term of registration of BIN in the Republic of Kazakhstan:

          Registration of BINs for foreign legal entities in Kazakhstan (registration of non-residents as taxpayers) takes 7-10 working days from the moment of receipt of your documents, as it is performed sequentially, in three stages:

    1. Issuance of an IIN to the head of a foreign legal entity,
    2. Activation of IIN in the information systems of tax authorities (it is necessary to make IIN of the head “visible” in the information systems of the tax authority),
    3. Issuance of a BIN to a non-resident foreign legal entity

There are two state agencies and one information base involved in IIN issuance and issuance in the Republic of Kazakhstan:

    1. NAO “State Corporation “Government for Citizens” – which forms the application for an IIN

The application is then transmitted through e-government channels to the

    1. Migration Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan – the body that assigns IIN to a citizen

From 12 July to the beginning of August 2022, we encountered the fact that the “State Corporation “Government for Citizens” made mistakes when filling out the application for issuing an IIN to a foreigner. The Migration Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan refused to provide the service, because the application was initially filled out incorrectly by the State Corporation.

As a result of errors between government agencies, we have received rejections and have to apply a second and sometimes a third time.

  1. It takes an average of 2-4 days to get the IIN into the database of the national register of individual identification numbers.

The tax authority and several information systems are involved in registration and issuance of BINs, including the database of the national register of IINs and information systems of tax authorities.

As of 17 November 2022, in order for the tax authority to “see” the head’s TIN information in its information systems, the tax authority is in the process of activating the TIN in its software.

IIN activation is not a public service, does not have a regulatory term of execution and is carried out by the tax authority, as a rule, within 1 to 5 days.
