There is only one endpoint to this VAT validation API, which takes the VAT number in the request, checks if that number is valid, and if it is valid, returns additional details about the company associated with that VAT number. You can test it (unauthenticated) by calling the following url:



  • VAT String Mandatory

    The VAT number to validate is the only mandatory parameter. In case the VAT number is malformed, e.g. the format is not as described by the respective national institution, the API will return validFormat=FALSE and no further checks will be made.

    All non-EU (with the excpetion of the United Kingdom) VAT numbers will be rejected.



Our VAT verification API uses tokens to authenticate requests. These tokens are computed automatically by {{apiName}} when the page is visited. Tokens are loaded with time and calls when you subscribe.

Once a token has been loaded, it can be managed, cancelled and renewed.

To make a request, just pass the token in the query string as follows:


Your tokens carry many privileges, so make sure to keep them secure! Do not share your token in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, etc.

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail. API requests without authentication will also fail. There is a daily limit of a few unauthenticated calls.


{{ apiName }} can be called for free up to a certain number of requests daily. The number of free requests may change day-to-day, as we closely monitor abuse.

In case that these requests are not enough, you will need to subscribe to one of the plans listed below.
