European VAT number validation

A PHP package to verify the validity of a VAT number issued by any European Union Member State.

This package is basically calling web service provided by VIES for VAT number validation.

VIES API documentation : http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/checkVatService.wsdl

This package allows you to :

  • validate a VAT number
  • retrieve information like the name or the address of the company

What is a VAT number?

A value added tax identification number or VAT identification number (VATIN) is an identifier used in many countries, including the countries of the European Union, for value added tax purposes.

Installation

Install using Composer :

$ composer require cba85/eu-vat-validation dev-master

You must have PHP with Soap enabled.

Usage

$vatValidation = new Validation('FR12345678910');

/*
 * Check VAT
 */
$vat = $vatValidation->checkVat();

/*
 * Is VAT ID valid ?
 */
$valid = $vatValidation->isValid();

You'll find more examples in the example folder.
