Add the Company Registration Number field to the Contact API
Please add the Company Registration Number field to the Contact API, this is a useful way to get a unique identifier for a company when syncing different systems.
The company registration number can now be retrieved and set via the contacts endpoint.
Should be made available

I cannot believe that this is not available through the API. Is there any update on this?
We create Contacts automatically through the API, but now someone has to go and manually fill in this field every time.

My customers have been asking for this info to be available in my software. Is there a plan to update the API to include all the Contact fields?
agreed - a unique identifier for a company outside of the xero ecosystem is a requirement.
I would have thought this would have been included given its importance for LTD and PLC businesses
I would not have guessed this would not be available
Tarun Ramesh commented
I really need this too. Doesn't make sense why this wasn't added in
Sankar Ara commented
there are many fields are unavailable in Create Contact. For example - Bank Name , Details field ..I dont know why.
This should be taken as critical implementation by Xero team.
Sina Bahrami commented
The contacts API is woefully inadequate. Is there any reason not _all_ fields are available?
This would be super handy in the Contact API, as well as the included Contact information that is included through the Invoice API.
For bonus points it would be great if this field lost its validation requirement, or if the validation was based on the country. e.g., if my company is based in the UK, but my clients are in France, I mostly care about the French company registration number (SIREN). But as it stands, Xero assumes because I'm in the UK, I want to add a UK Companies House number.

Yes, clearly it's needed in the API. Could you confirm this is planned?
Many thanks, Stuart
