How To Collect Tax ID/VAT Numbers From Your Customers

To collect your customers’ tax ID/VAT number, navigate to SureCart > Forms and select the form you wish to edit.

Then, add a “VAT or Tax ID Input” field to your form”. You can control where you want this form field to appear.

Changing VAT behavior

To change VAT behavior navigate to SureCart > Settings > Tax. Be sure that “Tax Collection” is turned on. Please enable any necessary settings:

Require VAT Number: This will require the VAT field to be required on all forms. It will also automatically add a VAT field to your form if you have not already added one

Local Reverse Charge: By default, reverse charges will not apply when customers are in your home country. However, enabling this setting enables you to apply a reverse charge when a customer is in your home country.

VAT Number Verification Failure: By default, SureCart will validate an EU VAT number EU VAT Number Validation API, which takes data from VIES. If it matches, a VAT exemption is done automatically.

If it fails to validate, the user sees an error. Sometimes a user can have a valid VAT number in their home country, but not registered through VIES. This will also make validation fail. You can change this behavior.

  • Reject the order and show an error
  • Accept the order but don’t apply reverse charge (don’t remove VAT)
  • Accept the order and remove VAT as normal (remove VAT)

Invoices

If a customer properly configures their tax ID/VAT number during checkout, it automatically appears on the invoice.
