1. EU VAT Compliant
EU VAT Compliant EU VAT Compliant

NEW: Local VAT Number database!

From 1 January 2015, supplies of telecommunications, broadcasting and electronically supplied services made by EU suppliers to private individuals and non-business customers will be taxable in the Member State of the customer.

You are also required to obtain two pieces of country evidence of the buyer's location. For every order, you can use the buyers billing address and the buyers IP address for the country as evidence.

Make your shop EU VAT compliant, fast and easy
The EU VAT Compliant extension allows you to collect and validate EU VAT numbers on your registration and checkout form, exempt businesses from VAT if necessary, collect and validate user location in B2C transactions, and handle the EU Tax requirements for digital goods.

The EU VAT Compliant extension will adds a 'VAT number' custom field to the registration form and checkout form (both registration & guest). The buyer can select the type (Customer group): Customer/Private or Business and based on this type the VAT number field will be visible or hidden and will be validated if needed.

Customer/Private
When type is Customer/Private, the VAT number field will not show. The buyer is generally charged for VAT taxes according to OpenCart standard config. In this case if they are an EU buyer they are charged with the VAT of their country, non EU buyers are not charged with VAT).

Business
When type is Business, the VAT number field is visible, but optional. If the VAT number is filled in and validated, this buyer is not charged with VAT tax (Reverse charge - VAT exempt), even if they are an EU buyer.

VAT number validation methods
EU VAT extension contains two methods of VAT number validations, online and offline validation. The online validation will use the free API from VIES (ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies) to validate the VAT number against the VIES VAT Number Database. The Offline validation uses dedicated algorithm for each country to validate the VAT number syntax. Which validation method is used can be configured in the extension settings, Offline, Online or both.

On every location and form, front-end and admin, the VAT number can be changed and will be validated.

VAT number validation when already registered
During each new order the VAT number will be validated again before the order can be completed, so when a VAT number of a registered buyer is no longer valid, the buyer will asked first to edit his VAT number before completing his order.

Collecting evidence of a buyer's location
The VAT on digital goods must be calculated based on the customer location, and you need to collect two pieces of country evidence, the billing address and the country based on the IP address are the most easy ones. With the free Online IP address service from GEOplugin (www.geoplugin.com), the billing country will be validated against the IP address country, if they match, the order can be completed.

When the country mismatch, the buyer will be noticed and asked to confirm their billing address is correct before completing the order. This confirmation will be logged in the 'Customer Activity' log and in a special evidence logfile 'owc_euvat_ip_address_confirmed.log' in the system log folder.

New UK Brexit rules from 1 January 2021
United Kingdom is no longer part of the Europa Union except Northern Ireland, so only Northern Ierland is still subject to EU tax and shipping laws (see https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/?locale=en for info on Northern Ireland). See extension manual within about special UK tax setup.

Second, UK VAT on goods valued up to £135 will be collected at the point of sale, and not the point of import.
This means that overseas businesses selling goods to be imported into the UK, valued between £0-135, will be required to charge and collect any VAT due at the time of sale.

NEW: Local VAT Number database!
Validated VIES/HMRC Vat numbers can be stored in a local VAT number database. Also you are able to manual validate and approve VAT numbers so customers can register without checking VIES/HMRC service.
This local database can be used to validate VAT numbers when VIES/HMRC service is unavailable. It is also possible to validate VAT numbers against the database instead of a VIES/HMRC service check during order processing, so you are able to minimize the service request to VIES/HMRC. Ofcouse the VAT numbers in the database will only be valid for a specific period.

  • Compatibility: EU VAT Compliant works well in OpenCart version 2.0.0.0 and above.
  • VAT number check: Setting to validate VAT numbers:
    1: OFFLINE SYNTAX, only use dedicated algorithm for each country to validate the VAT number syntax.
    2: ONLINE VIES/HMRC, only use the free API from VIES/HMRC to validate the VAT number against the VIES/HMRC VAT Number Database.
    3: LOCAL DATABASE and ONLINE VIES/HMRC, validate against local database, when not valid (or outside period), perform an Online validation.
    4: OFFLINE and ONLINE, first offline syntax validation and when VAT number is valid perform an Online VIES/HMRC validation.
    5: RECOMMENDED, first offline syntax validation and when VAT number is valid, validate against local database, when not valid (or outside period) then perform an Online VIES/HMRC validation.
  • VAT number invalid: Setting what to do if an invalid VAT number has been entered or in current selected save address.
    1: Show an error (orders will be rejected)
    2: Don't show an error and continue (orders will be accepted and normal tax will be applied)
  • Reverse charge VAT in store country: If a customer in the national country of the store and add a valid VAT number, it is possible to configure of this  customer will be charged VAT or VAT is exempt (Reverse charge) will be applied.
  • VAT number service failed: Setting how to handle when the Online VAT number service is unavailable,
    1: Reject the order and show an error.
    2: Offline validate VAT number by syntax, and if valid, accept the order.
    3: Offline validate by syntax and if local VAT Number database is enabled validate against the local VAT number database, if both are valid, accept the order, otherwise only accept order in special occasions.
  • VIES service retry: Retry after a VIES service error like MS_MAX_CONCURRENT_REQ or GLOBAL_MAX_CONCURRENT_REQ.
  • Ajax validation: The VAT number is validated through AJAX.
  • VAT number format: Format VAT number without spaces and dots.
  • Autofill company name and address: Autofill company name and address received from the VIES database.
  • Autofill disable fields: After autofill company name and address the fields can be disabled by making them READONLY.
  • IP address country check: Setting to validate the billing addres of the buyer with the Online IP address billing country.
  • IP address country check service failed: Setting how to handle when the Online IP address country service is unavailable, 1: Reject the order and show an error, 2 Accept the order (Note: Only if VAT number is validated).
  • Local VAT Number Database: It is possible to store VIES/HMRC Vat number validations with received address in a local database. This local database can be used to validate VAT numbers when VIES/HMRC service is unavailable. It is also possible to validate VAT numbers against the database instead of a VIES/HMRC service check during order processing, so you are able to minimize the service request to VIES/HMRC. Ofcouse the VAT numbers in the database will only be valid for a specific period.

    There are two validation methods:
    1: Database valid period used to check VAT number against database before using VIES/HMRC validation, for instance a valid period of 24 hours.
    2: Database valid period used only when VIES/HMRC is offline, for instance a valid period of a month.

    Special occasions for still accepting order after validation against database fails can be enabled:
    1: Reject the order
    2: Accept VAT number with a new customer registration when the customer group has 'Approve New Customers' with 'Yes'. You can later manually check the VAT number and approve the customer account.
    3: Accept the order when a guest or a returning customer from the same country as the Store country, and when setting 'Reverse charge VAT in store country' is 'No'. In this situation they must pay tax, so VAT number mismatch is not a big issue.
  • Cron customer validate VAT numbers: With this cron you are able to (re)validate VAT numbers in the background. Each validated VAT number will be stored in the Local VAT number database with the validation status and address data. Stored VAT numbers that are within the period specified above (both validation methods), can be used to quickly validate VAT number during checkout without using the VIES/HMRC service.
    Using the cron task:
    1: You can use it for simple validate all VAT numbers so you can determin what to do with invalid VAT numbers (cron 1 and 2). Remove the numbers, put them in a different customer group or sent them an email.

    2: Revalidate VAT numbers that are valid and outside the Database validation method 1/2 period (cron 3 and 4).

    3: If you have a lot of returning customers, it can be a good idea to keep the Local VAT Number database validations up to date (cron 5). You can execute the cron each day and each 5 minutes between 5-6 hours.

    4: Revalidate VAT numbers of returning customers when they login (cron 6). You can execute the cron each day and each 5 minutes between 7-23 hours, best not in the same time as cron 5
    .
    5: Revalidate VAT numbers that are manually validated (cron 7). Keep in mind that all manually validated VAT numbers will be reset and revalidated.
    6: Revalidate VAT numbers that received an VIES/HMRC error (cron 8).

  • Easy access the Local VAT Number Database in admin: In the OpenCart admin extension page, the VAT Number Database can be shown and you can filter to find a specific VAT numbers or customer. You can manually check and validate a vat number. It is also possible to validate all vat numbers by a cron task.
