VAT number – What is a VAT number?
A value added tax identification number or VAT identification number is an identifier used in many countries, including the countries of the European Union, for value added tax purposes. In the EU, a VAT identification number can be verified online at the EU's official VIES website. A VAT number is a unique identification number that’s assigned to every business registered for VAT. VAT numbers are used for tax purposes and are only given to businesses that are registered for VAT. As such, a VAT number is also commonly referred to as a VAT registration number or a VRN. A VAT number is unrelated to a Unique Taxpayer Reference or a Company Registration Number, and it's possible to have more than one of these numbers.
Why do I need a VAT registration number (VRN)?
The purpose of a VRN is to help identify VAT-registered businesses; you therefore need a VAT number in a number of different tax-related situations.
