BIN stands for Business Identification Number. It is a 14-digit number that is assigned to businesses in Bangladesh by the National Board of Revenue (NBR). BIN is required for businesses to operate legally and to pay taxes.

For businesses that run Facebook ads in Bangladesh, it is important to have a BIN. If a business does not have a BIN, Facebook will charge an additional 15% VAT on their ad spend. This is because Facebook is required to collect and pay VAT to the NBR on behalf of businesses that do not have a BIN.


Add a BIN to your Facebook Ad Account

  1. Go to your Facebook Business Manager account.
  2. Click on Business Settings in the top left corner.
  3. Click on Payments in the left column.
  4. Under Business Information, click Edit next to Tax Information.
  5. Enter your BIN in the Business Identification Number (BIN) field.
  6. Click Save.

Once you have added your BIN to your Facebook ad account, you will no longer be charged the additional 15% VAT on your ad spend.

Benefits of having a BIN for Facebook Ads:

  • Avoid paying an additional 15% VAT on your ad spend.
  • Show your customers that you are a legitimate business.
  • Increase your trust and credibility with potential customers.
  • Make it easier to comply with Bangladeshi tax laws.

If you are a business that runs Facebook ads in Bangladesh, it is important to have a BIN. Having a BIN will save you money on your ad spend and make your business more credible to potential customers.

BIN for Businesses in Bangladesh

The Value Added Tax and Supplementary Duty Act, 2012, requires all businesses in Bangladesh to have an Electronic Business Identification Number (e-BIN). This is also known as a VAT registration certificate. Businesses need a BIN to operate legally and to participate in certain activities, such as manufacturing, service rendering, withholding entities, tenders, banking, and export and import. The Customs, VAT, and Excise Department of the National Board of Revenue (NBR) regulates the VAT registration process.
