For to check if an Europen VAT No. is valid or not:
To sum up required features for different European regulations we need:
- ability to switch on/off displaying prices with tax (can be dependent on customer type?)
- ability to input tax and other numbers for a customer while creating account, changeable later
- ability to add additional info to products, shown on invoice
- custom rounding rules
- showing amount for each tax rate on invoice
