Compliance requirements can vary depending on the number of transactions your business involves annually. Hence, knowing your classification level and responsibilities will help you prepare for a PCI compliance audit.

Referring to the summary of PCI FAQs from PCIComplianceGuide.org., your business needs PCI DSS validation annually once for all locations if they handle payment card data under the same Tax ID.
