What is your Tax ID in Peru? – RUC number


Every company in Peru requires a RUC number. In this quickstart guide, we make a summary of the important aspects of the RUC number, which is an essential part of your company formation in Peru.

1. What is the RUC number?

In Peru the RUC stands for ‘Registro Único del Contribuyente’ in its Spanish abbreviation. Essentially, it is an 11-digit Tax ID number for any natural or legal person (such as a company) in Peru. It is used in most procedures either with public or private entities.

2. What government agency provides the RUC number?

SUNAT provides the RUC number to natural or legal persons. SUNAT stands for ‘Superintendencia Nacional de Aduanas y de Adminstración Tributaria’ in its Spanish abbreviation and is the Peruvian government agency, which enforces customs and taxation in Peru.

3. When is the RUC number provided?

When talking about forming a company, the RUC number is provided by SUNAT once the company has been successfully created in the Peruvian Public Registries. After the company is created, you approach SUNAT offices with all the necessary documentation to activate the RUC. This is the final step in forming a company.

4. What documentation is required to activate the company RUC number?

SUNAT offices require the following documentation/information to activate a company RUC:
