Chile, Peru and Brazil Tax ID requirements

Due to recent changes in postal regulations for Chile, Peru, and Brazil, it is now required to include the recipient’s Tax ID number on all accounts, packing slips and paperwork when shipping to these countries. Failure to provide this information will result in the non-delivery of packages. To comply with these regulations, Springer Nature needs the individual’s Tax ID number associated with their account. The following information outlines the specific requirements for each country:


  •  Chile: The Tax ID number required is known as RUT (Rol Único Tributario), which has 9 digits.
  •  Peru: The Tax ID number required is called RUC (Registro Único del Contribuyente), which has 11 digits.                        
  •  Brazil: The Tax ID number required is known as CPF (Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas), which has 11 digits.


If you believe your Tax ID number is not associated with your account, please contact the Customer Service Team.

Note:  Authors who have recently published a book with Springer Nature are also subject to these requirements.
