Overview

EU VAT Enhanced

ENGLISH

EU VAT Enhanced for Magento simplyfies the use of european business transactions like zero-rated intra EU supplies, Reverse Charge and intra-community triangular transactions. It extends the Magento core VAT validation functions introduced in Magento 1.7 or upgrades older Magento versions from 1.4 to 1.6 with similar features. Placing an order with 0% VAT is possible for registered customers, guests and for customers from outer European countries.

The latest VAT validation will be saved together with the customers address and is accessible by other modules (like the PDF print outs). The validation is made through the european VIES (VAT Information Exchange System).

Features

  • Validates the customers VAT-ID through EU VIES (VAT Information Exchange System)
  • NEW: Automated setup for tax classes, tax rates and tax rules / Automated store configuration for VAT in the EU
  • Automatic assignment to the following customer groups possible (of course you may use your own customer groups): <ul>
  • B2C General: For customers without or with invalid VAT-ID (Default Group)
  • B2B in Europe: For customers with valid VAT-ID in Europe
  • B2B own country: For customers with valid VAT-ID from the same country as the shop
  • B2B/B2C International: For customers outside Europe (Assignment only possible in checkout)
  • Invalid VAT-ID: For customers where the VAT number validation failed, because the number is invalid
  • Technical Errors: For failed VAT number validations due to technical errors with the validation interface
  • The VAT calculation is not coupled with the customer groups. The decision if VAT is applied to the order is flexible on the customers address and validation data.
  • VAT Numbers can be validated from the frontend for customers or from the Magento backend for administration users
  • Catalog price display without VAT for customers with valid VAT numbers
  • Compatibility with several "OneStepCheckout" solutions: Automatic reload of checkout totals after VAT number validation
  • Extends the customer address management with more information about the VAT number validation, like the company name and address details (if supported by the member state)
  • Option to automatically send an email with the validation details of a validation
  • Offline-Validation: Check the number for correct syntax when VIES is offline (or when member states are unavailable)
  • Installation manual included
  • </ul>

    Some benefits over Magento Core

    • Correct VAT application
    • Improved Workflow
    • VAT Numbers will be used WITH the country prefix globally
    • AJAX Validation will also allow guests and registering customers to place orders without VAT
    • Visible address based VAT number validation results at customer management, including the company data for the VAT number (whether company data is available is depending on the EU member state)
    • Basic syntax based offline validation
    • Options to disable Cross-Border-Trade for customers with valid VAT number and from out of EU countries

    Requirements

    • PHP Soap, PHP Curl

    About the Developer

    This extension was developed by and is supported by geissweb

    EU VAT Enhanced 5 5 9 9
    Money well invested Sven, the person behind this extension, seems to be a great person. Communication was easy and fast, you immediatly get the feeling that he knows what he is doing. It is one of the best supports I got so far from magento extension developers. There are some cheaper extensions out there (just a small difference though) but this extension impressed me, powerful with clear instructions and, most important, great support. No language barriers or whatsoever. @Sven, develop some other extensions, I would certainly buy from you again! Thanks for the support! August 1, 2015
    Great Extension and best Support This extension finally solves our problem with VAT validation during checkout in Magento 1.8.1 Includes 1 year support + upgrade, download contains detailed installation manual. Support responded fast and helped us to find the right tax settings to make everything work. March 18, 2014
    Support Excellent We had 2 problems. First one with our customized theme. Our theme loaded the registration form on every page in the my-account-section and displayed it on demand in a popup via javascript. Because of this, the EU-VAT-Grouper code was loaded twice on the checkout-process and the javascript-prototype-code didn't work anymore. Second one with the auto shipping module wich comes with Magento DE (Special German Magento Version). A loggin-in customer from e.g. austria saw 19% vat in the cart because auto-shipping default was Germany and not Austria. So we disabled the auto shipping module and now everything works as expected. Even though our problems where caused by other extension/theme we got an excellent support by Mr. Geiss. Thanks a lot. March 5, 2014
    Good Support Received a reply to my support query within 2 hours. August 21, 2013
    Great Support Extension works great! Really fast response from support. June 17, 2013
    Simple and effective Used in magento CE 1.7. Works very well, all the features are there. I had a problem caused by my locale and the support was excellent. Installation manual provides all the info you need to install and use. April 7, 2013
    Used with Magento 1.5 - worked out of the box, fast support (own mistake) and good documentation - thumbs up. Worth considering as alternative even for 1.7. September 27, 2012
    After purchasing and installing the module, setting everything up was easy. The documentation was very detailed on every step: creating tax groups, customer groups, helping us setting up the tax settings correctly for our country, etc. The module functions like it should. It notifies the customer like it should. Install, Setup, Forget! September 1, 2011
    Can this addon be used in combination with own customer groups instead of the groups in your description? And can this addon be used in combination with a random one page check addon? August 28, 2011

    Hello,

    Could you please tell me if VIES sends company name on response when VAT is valid?
    If yes is the extension doing anything with it, like saving it in a database?
    Also...is it working with magento Enterprise Edition 1.12?

    Regards

    Answer: 
    Hello sky_slx,

    I am sorry that you had to wait that long for an answer, but it seems I was not notified about this question.

    If VIES returns any company/address data is depending on the member state. Not all states do send back the address information, but if they do, the data will be saved to the customers account and will also be sent by e-mail.

    I GUESS the extension will work with EE, but I can not assure it because I unfortunately do not have a testing environment for EE. However, if it should not work, you will of course get free support until it does ;)

    Best regards,
    Sven

    We are currently looking for the one fits all VAT (VIES) validation that works with One Step Checkout Module. Does this extension also validate in customer registration, checkout and also manual registration through Magento admin panel?

    Answer: 
    Hello,

    I would say you have found the one fits all ;)

    Validation is possible at:
    - Customer registration
    - Customer address edit
    - Checkout (billing+shipping address)
    - Admin (customer address edit)

    We have integration for several "OneStepCheckout" modules:
    - onestepcheckout.com
    - IWD Checkout
    - FME Checkout
    - Aheadworks OnePageCheckout
    - EcomDev CheckItOut
    - Vinagento_Oscheckout
    - TM FireCheckout
    - GoMage Lightcheckout
    - MageStore Onestepcheckout
    - Ecommerceteam EasyCheckout
    - Nextbits Checkoutnext

    If your checkout module is not listed, it can be integrated easily within free included support.

    We are using a VAT extension at the minute which removes the VAT (with a guest checkout) should the VAT number be validated in the checkout process. Is this the case with this extension? Or does this this extension only work when customers register with a valid VAT number?

    And secondly, will the VAT extension work with PayPal Express? Currently, we are using PayPal Payments Pro Hosted to offer card payments on the website, and PayPal Express for the 'PayPal' option. However, when customers go off to PayPal using PayPal express, they confirm the order back on our website, through an order review page, at which point, the VAT which had previously been taken off is then added back into the order and the customer is charged VAT. Could you confirm whether this would be the case with this VAT extension?

    Thanks

    Answer: 
    Hello,

    the validation works everywhere where a VAT number field is present. This can be at customer registration, customer address edit and checkout and is working for guests as well as registered customers.

    Regarding PayPal Express, due to its design, ordering without VAT is not possible for guests, because at this stage no address information or VAT validation is present which could be evaluated.

    Best regards

    One of our customers needs to be able to add products with two VAT types - most products will follow the new EU rules, but they also sell products which include 'educational or professional courses, where the content is delivered by a teacher over the internet or an electronic network (in other words, using a remote link)' (from https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-supplying-digital-services-to-private-consumers/vat-businesses-supplying-digital-services-to-private-consumers).

    Can your extension handle this?

    Answer: 
    Hello,

    in general if you do not need the VAT number validation feature, what you need can also be done with Magento core.

    You need to setup dedicated product tax classes which are then used in the specific tax rules, together with the tax rates the products needs taxed with.

    My extension comes with an automated VAT setup, where all required rules, rates and classes can be installed automatically.

    Of course my extension can also handle this, especially when related to EU businesses.

    Best regards,
    Sven

    Hi there

    I have a number of scenarios that standard Magento community struggles with depending on the setup.

    1) Customer VAT Registered, Based in the UK, Shipping to UK - Has to pay - T1

    2) Customer VAT Registered, Based in the UK, Shipping to Switzerland -Vat exempt T0

    3) Customer VAT Registered, Based in the UK, Shipping to France (Retail) - Has to pay - T1

    4) Customer VAT Registered, Based in the UK, Shipping to France (VAT Registered Trade Person) - VAT Exempt - T4 - we need recipient valid vat number

    5) Customer VAT Registered, Based in the France, Shipping to UK (retail) Has to pay - T1

    6) Customer VAT Registered, Based in the France, Shipping to UK (VAT Registered Trade Person) Has to pay - T1

    7) Customer Based in the Switzerland, Shipping to UK Has to pay - T1

    8) Customer Based in the Switzerland, Shipping to France (Retail) Has to pay - T1

    9) Customer Based in the Switzerland, Shipping to France (VAT Registered Trade) - T4 - we need recipient valid vat number

    If I set the VAT based on billing address, if an EU based company outside the UK buys something, but ships to the UK, they will not be charged VAT which is an error.

    If I set the VAT based on Delivery address, if a UK based company ships something outside the UK, say to a private person in France, Magento does not charge them VAT as there's a VAT number present and they're being delivered to outside the UK.

    This is proving a challenge, and I would like to solve it if your plugin can help, I'll be happy to try it!

    Thanks

    Ben
