Taxes ID database download and API

Taxes ID database download and API

We provide access to our API of taxes IDs. With this you can download any tax code related to aviation. Our database contains around 550 different taxes IDs. It combines the name of the tax together with the tax ID. We’ve gathered this data from authorities in the aviation industry and we will add more tax IDs whenever they become available. This makes sure that our list remains up to date. We have a combination of automatic checks and manual to assure we keep the data as actual as possible. On top of this, our server is online 99.98% of the time and based in a central point in Amsterdam so that you will always have access to the taxes ID and any of our other data.

What is in our database

How we classify it

For more information about tax identifications, you can consult the IATA report LINK( ) Just like them, we also maintain a comprehensive list, integrated into our database. As they say it best “It is great as a reference tool with respect to the requirements for the collection, filing, ticketing, remitting, interlining of various tickets and airport taxes, charges and fees.”

Our data comes from civil aviation and taxation authorities as well as airports and airline representatives around the world. To classify things correctly it needs to be understood that there is a difference between tax, charge and fee classifications. While our list maintains the classification of tax ID, there are also charges included in our database. Tax can be seen as having the purpose of raising revenue for the treasury, used for general public purposes and charges are with the purpose of raising revenue for specific facilities or services related to the aviation.

Why we choose this information

Related to tax ID there is no need for further information. You are aware what the taxes IDs are needed for. It’s not easy to find a collection of all tax IDs so we have taken up the job of maintaining an actual list. Feel that more data should be provided with the tax IDs? Contact us. (LINK)

How do we guarantee the accuracy

Our tax IDs are based on information from sources of the aviation and taxation authorities and manually checked for accuracy when in doubt. We maintain a direct communication with our sources to assure that the data is accurate.

Method of data collection

We based our data on the IATA report of 2009 and built upon this with more tax IDs as we contacted taxation authorities of various nations, airports and airlines to expand upon the list. We made the needed adjustments and completed our list. From now we maintain a regular check on the data and update it when changes are noticed.

About our sources

We have gathered the list of tax ID codes from many civil aviations and taxation authorities, as well as airports and airline representatives globally. We maintain connections with these authorities and update the database accordingly as changes are made aware to us.

The different uses of the information for our clients

The use of the tax ID database is obvious. You need a base to build your software on which includes all tax IDs. You can spend weeks gathering all the tax IDs from different sources or you could simply download our list and be done immediately. On top of this, you will also be sure that the list is constantly maintained and you just have to check for updates on our side instead of maintaining contact with many sources. You could even integrate our API system with your software to get the updates automatically as they happen.

Mostly our clients first download the tax ID database and as they start using other segments of our data, they subscribe to our API. Eventually they integrate the tax ID API into the rest of their software to create a complete up-to-date ecosystem.

Trust us to be the foundation of your data and make it easier to stay up to date with any changes in the industry.
