Motivation

« What ties us to territory is tax. » -- Kevin Deldycke, 2014-11-07

The reason above is why we need fine-grained and meticulous territory management and normalization. This project aims to solve this problem once for all.

Don't get me wrong, this work is a huge undertaking. Postal address parsing, normalization and rendering is hard. See the collection of falsehoods programmers believe about postal addresses.

This library is still in its early stages, but is good enough to implement the new European Directives on VAT, which requires all e-commerce shops to guess the locality of their EU customers depending on their billing address.
