VAT number validation (VIES)

— filed under: ,

This web page allows you to verify the validity of a VAT identification number issued by an EU Member State by specifying the VAT number you wish to validate, and then selecting the Member State which allocated the number to be validated from the drop-down menu provided. The verification is done against the national VAT database corresponding to the selected Member State. Note 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.
