  • evidence of a fully functional bank account or customer due diligence.

What happens next

  • We will email or post your IRD number to you. It can take 20 working days to arrive if you choose to have it posted.

My responsibilities

  • Keep your IRD number where you can easily find it.
  • Set up a myIR account for your business or organisation when you have your IRD number.
  • Tell us about any changes. The easiest way to update your details is in myIR.
