Technical Information

Dear user,

 To respond to the needs expressed by several users, the Vies-on-the-Web system offers the facility of testing to development teams trying to:

  • Perform integration testing of their own applications;
  • Or to verify the availability of the VIES-on-the-Web application.

 Both actions can be performed as follows:

For the interactive service:

  • in the field “VAT Number”, please input the following exact text “TESTVATNUMBER”;
  • Push “Verify”;
  • The reply to be received should be: “No, invalid VAT number”;

 This reply means that the Service is available.

For the SOAP service (WSDL link: http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/checkVatService.wsdl), you may send the below xml request:
 
  

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/

xmlns:urn="urn:ec.europa.eu:taxud:vies:services:checkVat:types">

   <soapenv:Header/>

   <soapenv:Body>

      <urn:checkVat>

        <urn:countryCode>MS</urn:countryCode>

        <urn:vatNumber>TESTVATNUMBER</urn:vatNumber>

      </urn:checkVat>

   </soapenv:Body>

</soapenv:Envelope>

 

And you will receive the below reply:

 

<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap=" http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">

      <soap:Body>

      <checkVatResponse xmlns="urn:ec.europa.eu:taxud:vies:services:chackVat:types">

        <countryCode>MS</countryCode>

        <vatNumber>TESTVATNUMBER</vatNumber>

        <requestDate>"YYYY-MM-DD+HH:MM"</requestDate>

        <valid>false</valid>

        <name>---</name>

        <address>---</address>

      </checkVatResponse>

   </soap:Body>

</soap:Envelope>


It is allowed to send one test message (“TESTVATNUMBER”) every 5 minutes. If this is not respected the IP address issuing the requests will be blocked.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Dear User,

VIES on the Web will offer to a non-EU trader the capability to request for VAT Registration information validity of EU traders (VoES) and to acquire the consultation number for this request.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear User,

Please take into account that we are currently experiencing some issues with the verification against the Danish National VAT database.

As a result, the validation of the Danish VAT numbers in VIES on the Web application cannot be guaranteed.

In case that you encounter such a situation, please re-submit your validation later.

We are working to resolve the issue. Sorry for any inconvenience.
