  • What Is the EU VAT Number?

    A VAT number – or VAT registration number – is a unique code issued to companies that are registered to pay VAT. It acts as an identifier used in many countries, including countries in the European Union. It’s used for tax purposes. In the EU, a VAT number can be verified online at the EU’s VIES (VAT Information Exchange System), a search engine owned by the European Commission.

  • How to Get an EU VAT Number?

    To get an EU VAT number, your company needs to register for VAT in the EU, and you need to apply to Her Majesty Revenue & Customs (HMRC). You can either register yourself via the VAT online service or get an accountant or agent to do this for you.

    After registering, you will get a VAT registration certificate within 2-8 weeks. The tax authorities may well ask further questions, specifically to try to prevent VAT fraud. Once your company has received your VAT number, you are free to start trading and charging VAT on foreign transactions. Keep in mind to follow the rules on EU VAT Compliance and complete regular EU VAT Returns.

  • How to Check EU VAT Number?

    You may find yourself wanting to check the VAT number of a company you want to do business with. You may want to check if their VAT registration number is valid, or you may just want to check the company name and address of the business the number is registered to.

    You can check the VAT number of a company in the EU using the VIES system. If you’re looking to check the UK VAT number, you can check it here.

  • What Is EU VAT Identification Number?

    An EU VAT Identification Number or VAT registration number is a unique number that identifies a taxable business registered for VAT. Companies can find these numbers on the registration certificate issued by HMRC, and it should be stated on any invoice they give.

    Every EU country issues its own national VAT number. If your business supplies goods or services in several EU countries, you might need to get a VAT number in each of these countries.
