Data acquisition

VATify.eu acquires data from public databases of different ministries and other government offices. It coveres most of Europe, coun­try specific details are avail­able below.

VATify.eu coverage is constantly expanding and needs new data sources. Do you know any?

Data source

VATify.eu verifies com­pany details for com­pa­nies from more than 35 coun­tries. Basic source of data is VIES (VAT In­for­ma­ti­on Exchange System). Data retrieved from VIES is regarded as correct and true, and can be used as proof for tax autho­ri­ties, if the consultation number is present. Comparing avail­able data from VIES and data avail­able from member states tax and other fiscal autho­ri­ties, VIES data is relatively limited. Also, VIES databases do not have data on com­pa­nies from coun­tries that are not members of the EU.

VATify.eu extracts addi­ti­o­nal data, made avail­able by tax and other financial institutions in different coun­tries. Extracted data can vary greatly from coun­try to coun­try, so VATify.eu unifies it and makes it avail­able in the same format for every coun­try or other entity, regardless of the origin of data.

New sources

The scope of retrieved and verified data is expanding constantly, but the source of data must be publicly avail­able and in a form that can be auto­ma­ti­cally retrieved and processed. If you know of any new sources, please contact us.
