VAT rules and procedures
Check to see if a VAT number is valid, search by EU country - either the country that has issued the number, or the country that has requested it.
There are standardised rules on VAT at EU level. But these can be applied in different ways by EU countries.
Special rules on VAT apply if you buy or sell goods or services from or to another EU country.
Refunds may be possible if your business is charged VAT on activities in another country.
