|French term or phrase: Siret|
|I asked to fill in an answer in a translator form field|
Answerer: Anna Stevenson
Answer: SIRET Number
This is another unique code used to identify business for tax reasons. It consists of 9 numbers (the SIREN code) plus another 5. I believe there is no equivalent in English, as SIRET is a registered trademark.
From http://www.sirene.tm.fr/annonce/glossaire/siret.htm : "Le numéro SIRET® est un identifiant numérique de 14 chiffres composé du SIREN® (9 chiffres) et d’un numéro interne de classement de 5 chiffres (NIC) caractérisant l’établissement d’une entreprise en tant qu’unité géographiquement localisée. Il est donc modifié en particulier si l’établissement change d’adresse."

Business Registration Number
This number (to correct an earlier answer) is given by INSEE, even if it is through URSSAF that a translator, as a person working in the professions libérales, that one applies for this number. Further, there are in fact two numbers, a SIREN and a SIRET. The SIREN describes the physical or moral person, while the SIRET describes the business establishment. A business with a single SIREN would have a SIRET with five additional digits, ending with a slightly different series of number for each office or location.

Hi Mats, I changed the glossary entry to read "French business registration number" as any business structure has a SIRET n° in France, not just those operating as a company. I'm a "professional libérale" and I have a SIRET number, for example!
