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, 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:checkVat: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.
