Hi, @LeonWass.


Which country is your business based in? 


Typically it's businesses in Sweden that are being asked for an organization number, so I assume this is where your business is operating from? 


If this is the case, and if you're currently in the process of setting up Shopify Payments in Sweden, an organization identity number is typically one of the documents that our verification team may ask for. You can take a look at this help guide for more information on this and other requirements for Shopify Payments in Sweden.


Generally speaking however, when it comes to obtaining an organization number and a VAT number, this is something that you will need to consult your local tax authorities about to ensure that you're following the most appropriate tax ruling for your specific region and situation. We aren't tax experts and so cannot provide you with any tax advice, however I did manage to locate this website for organization numbers as well as this one here for VAT, both of which may be helpful for you to start off with. We also have a couple of VAT guides for Shopify store owners available via the links below:



As mentioned however, as we won't be able to provide you with any legal or tax advice in regards to your business operations, please consult with your local legal or tax advisor from here so that they can provide you with the most accurate advice on how to proceed.
