Keep reading to find out more about how enriching your data with VAT numbers can help you...

VAT Number Uses

There are multiple reasons as to why you or your company would want access to VAT numbers. The first being to confirm that the VAT number provided by companies you deal with it exists and is valid. This may save time and effort after the transaction when re-claiming VAT. Many companies look to hold the VAT numbers of their regular customers/suppliers on file to allow for easy processing.

Another benefit of enriching your data with VAT numbers is for record-keeping and tracking transactions for tax purposes. This can help both parties maintain accurate financial records, making it easier to manage finances and report income and expenses to tax authorities.

Having a VAT number adds transparency to financial transactions. It makes it easier to trace and verify business transactions, which can be essential for auditing purposes.
