Informations about the package eu-vat-validator

EU VAT Number Validator

A simple and clean PHP class that validates EU VAT numbers against the central database (using the official europa API).

The Problem

Validate VAT numbers might be difficult and if you use a validation pattern to check if the format is valid, you are never sure if the VAT registration number is still valid.

The Solution

This PHP VAT validator library uses real-time data feeds from individual EU member states' VAT systems so you are sure of the validity of the number and avoid fraud with expired or wrong VAT numbers.

For example, this kind of validation can be very useful on online payment forms.

How to Use


Optimization (Suggestion)
