    Default VAT4EU Support Thread

    This is the support thread for the forthcoming VAT4EU (VAT for EU Countries) plugin, a re-design of the VAT mod for European Companies that supports Zen Cart 1.5.5 and later.

    VAT4EU reduces (but does not remove) the core-file/template-file changes required for its operation, injecting Zen Cart "notifiers" to allow its processing to integrate into your installation without carving those files up! It also makes use of the VIES service for automatic VAT number validation.

    A beta version is available on the plugin's GitHub repository for anyone who wants to give it a try before I submit the plugin to the Zen Cart Plugins over the next few days.

    Just to clarify, this mod allows customers (ie. usually companies) that have a VAT number registered with the EU as valid for inter-community commercial purchases, to purchase ex-VAT?
    Next step for making ZC B2B-friendly would be customer discount pricing per customer/product/manufacturer...

    @torvista, what you said as clarification is what the plugin does.

    I've just submitted v1.0.0 of VAT4EU to the Zen Cart plugins for review; once approved, it can be downloaded from https://www.zen-cart.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=2164.

    This plugin, a rewrite of the VAT for European Companies mod supports Zen Cart 1.5.5a and later. The plugin has been designed to use the Zen Cart "notification" system where possible, to reduce the number of core and/or template-override file changes required!

    Once installed, configured and enabled the plugin gathers a "VAT number" from your store's business customers and displays that value on any associated orders' confirmation emails, invoices and packingslips. When the customer's VAT number has been validated, VAT4EU provides "VAT Refund" processing for orders shipped to another country.

    The plugin can be configured to automatically validate a customers VAT entry, using the VIES (VAT Information Exchange System) interface or a store admin can override a customer's VAT in case their registration is new or the VIES servers are down.

    See the plugin's readme for additional information.

    I think this mod will go a long way to addressing the lack of a tax id field in the core code, something mentioned previously:

    I've just submitted v1.0.1 to the Zen Cart plugins; once it's approved, I'll post back here.

    This release contains changes associated with the following GitHub issues (https://github.com/lat9/vat4eu):

    #1: PHP error generated when web-service returns error
    #2: Shipping/billing address additions don't "stick".

    Hi

    We have an issue on our website https://sitstandforbusiness.com/inde...create_account where on the login/checkout Belgian customers cannot add thier VAT number.

    I have trid with and with out the prefix and followed the instructions and I get the following message:

    We were unable to validate the VAT Number that you entered. Please re-enter the value or contact us for assistance.

    I am able to add it and give validation override in the back end but that not ideal. Please advise what's going wrong

    I just went to http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/, where the following message is displayed:

    Important Disclaimer:
    Belgium’s (BE) National VIES Component is facing temporary technical issues related to the validation of Belgian VAT numbers.
    As a result, the validation of Belgian VAT numbers can be unavailable.
    The Belgian Tax Administration is working towards a resolution.
    Sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

    That's, apparently, the source of the issue.
