As required by the EU directives for intra-community transactions, every company in the European Union must ensure correctness of any other EU business partner’s VAT ID number.

Moreover, with recently changed requirements of Intrastat declarations, you don’t want to risk a fine of up to EUR 50,000 by providing incorrect information to foreign trade statistics. 
To bulletproof your tax compliance for EU deliveries and services, business partners VAT registration number checks are essential along with associated documentation. Result? Seamless audit trail and smooth tax processing.

Identify master data inconsistencies to avoid tax risks

While regulated by law within European Union, tax landscape outside EU isn’t less complex and poses risks when invalid tax number or national identifier are used in transactions. Inconsistencies between reference data of a particular identifier compared to the data maintained by your company can affect supply of goods and lead to late payments, incorrect invoices and additional time-consuming and nerve-wrecking corrections.  
For instance, with over 55,000 jurisdictions tax codes in the United States, inconsistencies in master data, and in address data in particular, can backfire on you for violating tax regulations.  

By matching tax IDs with official registers, you can make sure that legal address, names and business identifiers are correct. Automated validation of master data enables thorough check of business and location identifiers (i.e. GST numbers, tax identifiers, national identifiers and other third party and proprietary identifiers) with respect to existence, format, reference format, check digits and consistency. Avoid problems with tax authorities not just once, but continuously.
