Esempio European VAT

European VAT (EU Start) is the service that allows you to obtain information about a European company from the VAT number.

VAT (Value-Added Tax) is the unique identification number of a company within the European Union and in Italy corresponds to the VAT number preceded by the country code (IT). It is necessary for companies that carry out B2B transactions and facilitates cross-border economic activities within the EU.

The European VAT service allows you to verify in real-time whether a company's VAT is registered and operates in the European Union.
Information on the validity of the VAT registration number is available for all current 27 EU member states, even for companies not registered with VIES.


In the following request, we use the VAT number as a parameter: IE6388047V



The information returned in the response is:

  • Validity Verification of VAT Number
  • Company Name
  • Legal Address 
  "data": {
    "valid": true,
    "formatValid": true,
    "countryCode": "IE",
    "vatCode": "6388047V",
    "companyName": "GOOGLE IRELAND LIMITED",
  "success": true,
  "message": "",
  "error": null


The service is often used to verify a customer's VAT and determine whether to charge taxes on a transaction. 

Due to data protection, some national authorities may not provide the name and address corresponding to a VAT number. In this case, the API will only confirm whether a certain VAT number is valid or not and cannot provide information on the company name and legal address.
