You can receive a consultation number from VIES for each VAT identification number that you validate if you provide a valid requestor’s VAT identification number during validation. You use this consultation number to prove to a tax administrator of a member country that you validated the VAT identification number and obtained a validation result.

You can validate a single VAT identification number at the time of data entry. You can also validate multiple records using a batch process.

  • Place the numbers in the input box – one number per line – (usefull for pasted numbers from spreadsheets) and press the button “Check”.
  • The results immediately appeared, with the inputed numbers and response from  Member State’s database ( VIES ).
  • Save the verification on your hard disk or send the result of verification to your mailbox.
  • To validate new set of numbers press “Clear all” and the result box returns to input mode again.
  • If you have received an error message when entering your VAT number, please check to make sure you have entered the number in the correct format. Please enter the country code first, followed by the entire VAT number. Please enter the number without any spaces.

Example: 

  • INCORRECT: 157 544 555 666
  • INCORRECT: GB 157 544 555 666
  • CORRECT: GB157544555666

    Hi
    You have a technical problem with the CSV file you create, for example I search for a company vat PT502777133, in the grd the data display correctly, but not on the downloaded CSV file
    Displaying the data correctly on the GRID
    PT502777133 PT502777133 VAT number registered FINANCETAR SOC DE SERVICOS FINANCEIROS EMPRESARIAIS E IMOBILIARIOS SA
    R SÃO JOÃO DE BRITO 605 3 SALA 3 PONTO 4 PORTO 4100-453 PORTO 04-06-2015 12:54
    But data on the CSV file like the following
    PT502777133;PT502777133;”VAT number registered”;”FINANCETARSOC DE SERVICOS FINANCEIROS EMPRESARIAIS E IMOBILIARIOS SA”;”RSÃO JOÃO DE BRITO 605 3 SALA 3 PONTO 4 PORTO 4100453 PORTO”;0406-201512:48;

    Do you see the problem in CSV file ?? it should be FINANCETAR SOC not FINANCETARSOC as in the CSV same on R SÃO not RSÃO ( the space is missing)

    Hi Piotr,

    It doesn’t seem to work anymore. I got the message “Wpisany kod captcha jest nieprawidlowy”
    A couple months ago it worked fine.

    Greetings

      Hi Bram
      At this time, the application works correctly.
      For several weeks, before pressing the “Check” must be filled CAPTCHA above the button “Check”.
      The commands in the CAPTCHA should be in the user’s language or in English.
      The answer you get is “Wpisany kod captcha jest nieprawidlowy” -> translating into English “captcha code you entered is invalid”.
      If the command in the CAPTCHA is incomprehensible to you, try to use the Refresh feature in the CAPTCHA.
      Captcha is used because different types of spam software applications sending trash information which significantly depresses the server.
      Best Regards
      Piotr

    Hi Piotr

    You are absolutely right. It works fine!
    I was confused by the Captcha screen and thought it was an ad. I looked over totally !

    Thanks
    Best regards

    Hi Team,

    I understand we need to enter Captcha before clicking on ‘Check’
    The text in Captcha in many cases are illegible (Not readable), we refresh many times, still wont get a Captcha which can be understood and entered. Can the captcha made more clearer.

    Thanks,
    Narthan

    Hi. I tried to check my own fiscal number with the PT prefix (country code) and the result was “Number inactive”. I tried with my wife vat number and same result. I tried with company vat number and the result was OK. Is there any problem with vat numbers for individuals?
