WHINT B2G VAT Check

0

Businesses in the European Union can check the VAT (value added tax) identification number (id) of their trading partners to make sure the companies are still operating, in business and the information provided is valid.

Our solution enables companies using SAP to automate the checks directly from their ABAP-based (ERP, CRM, SRM, S/4HANA) system.

Highlights

  • Business-To-Government Communication (B2G)
  • Turn-key Integration Content
  • Automatic check of European VAT id based on the master data or single id
  • Service Providers
    • BZSt (Germany) – Bundeszentralamt für Steuern: Bestätigungsverfahren Umsatzsteuer-Identifikationsnummer (USt-IdNr.)
    • VIES (European Commission) – VAT Information Exchange System: VIES VAT number validation

Prerequisites

  • The government services are publicly available, no further charges apply
  • Cloud Edition: You need an existing CPI (f.k.a. HCI) tenant from SAP where you can deploy our content. Please contact us in case you haven´t any.
