About registration numbers and under review notifications

What is a registration number?

We use the registration number to review the details of your account. This lets us determine if Microsoft can provide you products and services. See the Registration numbers by country section below to find more information about what values to enter into this field.

For countries where the registration number is mandatory, the label above the text box indicates what type of number is required.

For example, in the following screenshot, the label indicates that a CNPJ (Brazilian) registration number is needed.

For countries where the registration number is optional, you can choose to provide a company legal registration number. Don’t enter a personal ID in this field.

The following screenshot shows an example of when the registration number is optional.

If you don’t have a valid registration number, see Registration numbers by country for details.

What should I do if I get an under-review notification?

When you complete a purchase, you might receive a notification that your account is under review. During the review process, you can check the status by browsing to the Billing > Billing accounts page and selecting the account that you used to complete your purchase.

The review process normally takes about one day to complete but can take longer.

The following screenshot shows the review notification displayed during checkout.

An email notification is also sent to all Global and Billing admins on your account. In some cases, the notification is sent to users who have the Billing Account Owners or Billing Account Contributors role on the account. The notification says that a review is currently in process. A confirmation email notification is sent after the review process is complete.

The following screenshot shows the notification displayed on the billing account details page.
