Business Registration Number (BRN) for your contacts

When you’re in Xero, you may add new contact whether its your supplier (creditors) or customer (debtors). Please add your contact’s business registration number to the end of their name, in brackets. For example, if the name of your contact is Satay Ayam Noodle House and their BRN is 001234567-B, then you should edit their name to be Satay Ayam Noodle House (001234567-B). Here is the sample:

Why we need to structure contact name as the above?

Kastam (or Royal Malaysia Custom Department) requires business name and business registration number to appear in the GAF File (or Sales Tax Audit Report in Xero).
