Tax information

Unity must collect your relevant tax information in order to withhold taxes when applicable, as required by tax authorities. To validate your tax information, you must first create a payout profile.

Once your payout profile is complete, locate the Payout Tax Info section of the Payout Profile page, then click the Create button.

You will temporarily leave the dashboard to complete the tax interview by providing the following information:

  • Basic information about yourself

  • Consent to receive information reporting documentation

  • Your overall tax status

  • Your electronic signature and consent to use it

When finished, click Exit interview to return to the Payout Profile page. The Payout Tax Info section takes a few minutes to update. When it does, the Tax status changes to "Validated".

Requesting payment as an individual

Unity can process payment to you as an individual, rather than as a company. To register as a private individual, simply enter your legal name in lieu of a company name. Please be sure that this name also matches an owner of your Unity Organization.

In general, no taxes are deducted from payments to companies or similar entities. However, if you are a private individual, payments are governed by tax agreements between your country and Finland. These agreements exist to reduce any possible double taxation and set guidelines for personal taxation rules. Taxes for Ads income are usually between 0-15%, but may be higher for certain countries. Consult your own tax office for further guidance.

Unity will not deduct taxes from your payment. Handling taxes for your revenue is your responsibility.

Value Added Tax (VAT) numbers

The European Union (EU) requires members to have a VAT number. The local legislation in each country specifies when you need to apply for a VAT number. If you do not have one, state ”No VAT” or “None” in the corresponding invoice field.
