XML interface

Example: http://www.vatapi.co.uk/api.asmx/Search?name=Microsoft&city=

Request VAT data via XML

If you are using a .NET environment, or are more familiar with XML / SOAP, then you can make a web service reference to the WSDL – here http://www.vatapi.co.uk/api.asmx?wsdl

There are two methods

  • Search
    This is to look up the VAT number of a company when you only know its name, or location.

    This works in Austria, Switzerland, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Greece, and Malta

  • Verify
    This is when you want to verify the VAT number of a company, and find it’s legal name and address. This works in all european countries.
