Only mainland-incorporated domestic / overseas owned businesses are required to have a Unified Social Credit Code. In the case of individual taxpayers, a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) will suffice for tax-registration purposes. In the case of mainland citizens, they may use their Citizen Identity Number as their TIN, while non-citizens must secure a TIN from the relevant tax authorities. In the case of Hong Kong/Macao residents, they must present their Mainland Travel Permit for Hong Kong and Macao Residents (also known as the Home Visit Permit) or the relevant Residence Permit of the People’s Republic of China for Residents of Hong Kong and Macao to the tax authorities in order to secure a TIN.
