The usage and implementation of My Number (Individual Number/ Corporate Number) has started from January 2016.
My Number is used to efficiently manage information and to tie personal information held in multiple government organizations to the same individual in the areas of social security administration, taxation, and disaster response. Individual Number is a 12 digit number which is assigned to every person possessing a resident record in Japan. My Number is assigned to foreign nationals as well if he/she has a resident record in Japan. Corporate Number is a 13 digit number which is assigned to "established registered corporations" such as kabushiki kaisha or other entities.
