"EU VAT Validation for Creatio" add-on enables checking VAT number of new account via web service, which uses VIES VAT number validation, https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/ for companies working in the European Union.
The add-on helps end-users to validate VAT numbers when adding an account to avoid possible mistakes with financial documents processing.
- New button on Account minipage or Account main page that checks if a VAT number is valid.
- Automatic account data filling in Account (Name, Alternative Name, Country, Address, City, ZIP) and Account address (Primary = 'True', Type = 'VIES', Country, Address, City, ZIP) objects.
No need to have a registration at https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies.
In some cases, the VIES database does not have the full data (Address, City, ...) about the VAT numbers. In these cases, we simply validate the VAT number without adding a new address, since we don't have the data to fill all the fields required.
In order to keep the add-on free of charge, support is provided via e-mail email@example.com
