    Default EU VAT Number Validation

    Afternoon all,

    I have been reading up that if someone outside the UK purchases from your website, you do not have to charge VAT, however, you have to check that they have a valid VAT number.

    It is easy to go online and do that, but how can i incorporate this into my site, so that i don't need to go and do externally? My client, whose current site already has this function from 5 years ago, is a bit worried about it now and its the last issue before going live.

    Can i add an eu vat validate function to my current BP website?

    VAT numbers are automatically checked as valid VAT numbers, but the company name is not currently checked for a match.
