Review of European VAT Check Service


Allows you to verify hundreds of VAT identification numbers issued by a Member State. The verification is done against the national VAT database corresponding to the selected Member State. There is no VAT database at Community level. For the purpose of the verification, your request is sent to the national database via a secure Intranet service connecting national Customs and Taxation administrations and the reply is sent back in a few seconds.

European VAT Check Service is useful to companies having to verify the VAT Numbers of many customers and suppliers, for example before billing. Unlike verification available on websites, European VAT Check Service allows:


  • single-click verification of hundreds of VAT identification numbers got from external data sources
  • to get "VIES Request ID", unique consultation number useful if you have to prove to a tax administration of a Member State that you have checked a given VAT number
  • to print and/or export results to file.

When You click on the "Verify" button get the following possible answers:


  • Yes, valid VAT number.
  • No, invalid VAT number. (meaning that the number introduced is not valid at least on the date specified)
  • Service unavailable. Please re-submit your request later. (meaning there is some problem with either the network or the Web application)
  • Member State service unavailable. Please re-submit your request later.(meaning the application in the Member State whose VAT number you are trying to validate is not available)
  • Error: Incomplete (VAT + Member State) or corrupted data input.
  • Request time-out. Please re-submit your request later.

in the case of a valid VAT number, if the name and/or address are replaced by '---', this means that the Member State that issued the VAT number does not allow to disclose this information. If you put your own VAT identification number in the box requester's VAT identification number, the reply will contain a unique consultation number. System Requirements You can install this application on Windows 2003 Server, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Seven, 32bit and 64bit systems. The only system requirement is presence of Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 (or later). You can download .Net Framework from Microsoft sites or from here. Operational requirement is an Internet connection. If your Internet connection uses a proxy, you have to enter authentication parameters to allow conversation between software and VIES web-service.
