What is VAT and VIES?

A VAT number or Tax Identification Number (TIN) is a unique identifier for companies, individuals, and entities within the European Union’s Value-Added Taxation scheme VAT Information Exchange System – abbreviated VIES – is a tool provided by the European Commission that allows you to check the validity of VAT numbers of companies registered in the European Union. Check the validity of a VAT Number with justaxit and receive results in a few seconds. All information is provided using the original VIES web-service: https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/

Valid response

If VAT number is valid response will be “Valid”.

Invalid response

If the system returns an invalid status, reponse will be “Invalid number or EU VIES server is temporarily unavailable. Please check again later”. It means either that the VAT number you are trying to validate is not registered in the relevant national database or these databases are not responding at the current moment for any requests.  VAT number can be not registered in the relevant national database due to one of the following reasons:
  • the VAT number does not exist
  • the VAT number has not been activated for intra-EU transactions
  • the registration is not yet finalised (some EU countries require a separate registration for intra-EU transactions).
These changes are not always reflected immediately in the national databases and consequently in VIES. For urgent matters, we advise you to contact your local tax administration. VIES is available in 23 languages of the European Union.
