Two activities to validate EU VAT registration number (you can check if vendor/customer is VAT registered) and its format.
This package contains two activities:
1. VAT Format Validator - offline activity. Every country has well-known VAT number format/syntax. This activity uses these rules to check if the provided VAT number format is correct. It tells only if the format is correct, not if such VAT exists in the real world!
Works mainly for EU countries, full list below:
i. EL, GR (Greece)
+ HR for 1.2.0 release
2. VIES VAT Checker - online activity so connection with internet is needed. This activity uses European Commission VAT validator (VIES - https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/) to validate if such VAT number is registered. Works only for EU countries (no longer works for GB!).
