The Value Added Tax number, VAT ID number for short, is used in the EU to clearly identify a company or entity which is liable for Value Added Tax.

Legislation requires that invoices sent within the EU must contain the VAT ID number of the company or entity in receipt of the goods or services.

Use the European VAT ID Number Directory to find all necessary company information quickly and easily and to invoice your goods or services promptly.
