How would I use this if I was ordering something from a Polish website?

Thanks

Are you for real? you want to buy something from a Polish company and you can't because they want your NIP???
I think the average nip is 9 digits long.
Just enter some numbers in.

NIP is a PL tax identification number.
They shouldn't be asking for your NIP if you want to buy something as a private person. Now, I believe they could ask for it if you were buying on behalf of a company or asked for an invoice for a company.

hope this helps.

Use the search facility, Lefty. They have some good threads on it.

You need it if you pay ZUS and taxes here as I do. I have my NIP and Regon on my stamp, it's a quick reference thing.

I pay ZUS and I only have a pesel number. I do not have a NIP number as I do not pay taxes in Poland, the Regon number is for a company, not a private individual.

That's true, Avalon. I have my own company so that's why I have to include the Regon number.
