    Hi, I am translating an invoice where CUIT, RIF and NIT all appear. I understand all three to mean Tax ID Number. Can someone help me distinguish between the three? The invoice is from Venezuela.

    Thanks.

    Hi Tsparacino:

    You´re right. CUIT/RIF/NIT, the three of them, are synonyms.

    As far as I know, the "Clave Unica de Identificacion Tributaria" (CUIT) is the Argentinian equivalent for the tax ID numbers known as "Registro Único de Información Fiscal" RIF and "Número de Identificación Tributaria" (NIT) used in Venezuela.

    In the case of Venezuela, since August 1, 2006, the use of the, "Número de Identificación Tributaria" (NIT) was discontinued, being replaced by the "Registro Único de Información Fiscal" RIF. If you want to learn more on this issue, please click here (in Spanish).

    I guess if some CUIT number appears in a Venezuelan invoice, it is because it has something to do with an Argentinean company or with a company from any other country.

    I hope this helps you.
