If you begin creating an Apple Search Ads Advanced account and try to switch to Basic before you’re done, you’ll encounter an error. You’ll need to finish creating your Advanced account — and link it to your App Store Connect account — before you can switch to Apple Search Ads Basic.
Understand the Business Details page
The Business Details page in your account contains key information about your company and is used to determine your tax status. After completing the Business Details page during account setup, you can access and make changes to it in your Account Settings any time.
The Business Details page includes:
Legal entity name
The registered name of your business as written in incorporation documents and/or tax returns.
The country or region where your business is legally registered and where you’re considered a tax resident. In many cases, this will be the country or region where your business’s main corporate office, headquarters, or principal business is located, or the country or region that your business lists on official company letterhead.
The address where your business is legally registered and where you're considered a tax resident. In many cases, this will be the address where your business’s main corporate office, headquarters, or principal business is located, or the address that your business lists on official company letterhead.
Your business’s Tax ID number as it appears on your relevant tax registration certificate, which might include but is not limited to:
- VAT (Value Added Tax) ID (including the two-letter EU member state code at the beginning, if applicable)
- GST (Goods and Services Tax) ID
Access the Documents page
If you run app promotions or campaigns on the App Store in mainland China, you’ll use the Documents page to submit your app and business for approval and check the status of your request. As part of your submission, you may need to upload business licenses and other relevant documents. Like the Business Details page, you can access the Documents page within your Account Settings. Note that the Documents page will only appear in your Account Settings after you’ve added mainland China to an app promotion or campaign.
