A library for checking on European VAT formats

Project description

A library for checking on European VAT formats

Build Status

pyVat is a complete library that validates vat number formats in EU member countries. The algorithms used are described in /doc/VIES-VAT Validation Routines-v15.0.doc


Python >= 2.7


$ pip install vat-format-checker


from pyVat.api import Validator
validator = Validator('ATU10223006')
if validator.validate() is True:
    print ("The VAT number has a valid format")
    print ("Invalid VAT number format for country %s" % validator.country_code)


  • The Croatian format is missing the algorithm. The validations is done purely based on regular expressions.
