EU VAT Enhanced for Magento

EU VAT Enhanced improves the capabilities of Magento when it comes to business-to-business transactions within the European Union. It can control how and for whom VAT is charged. It replaces the Magento core VAT number validation functionality introduced in Magento 1.7 with its own, also to give your business partners a better feedback. Placing an order with 0% VAT is possible for guests and registered customers, totally independent of the customer group.

  • Installer for standard VAT configuration in EU countries
  • Instant feedback for the customer about the VAT number validation result
  • Customized algorithm to determine the customer tax class and customer group
  • Mature Magento extension with many comfort options, compatibile with virtually all other third party extensions

Save your time and development cost and just use the evolved solution trusted by many other merchants and agencies which is constantly improved.

Compatible with Magento-CE: 1.7.x, 1.8.x, 1.9.x

During the period you have access to free email support and you can download the latest version. You can extend the period at any time (no subscription).

Any custom project reference like your clients name or project number.

This extension uses the EU VIES (VAT Information Exchange System) service to validate the VAT-IDs of your customers. It is possible that this service experiences downtimes where it is not possible to validate the VAT Numbers of your customers. In such cases, it does not constitute a malfunction of our module and your customers will still be able to register or checkout in your shop. The specific disclaimer for the VIES does also apply on our module.

This page and our software does not constitute tax advice and is merely intended to serve technical solutions to common issues with business requirements in Magento. For tax information please consult your tax advisor.

Super support, super company, and Sven many many thanks for your help

Kind regards

A real time saver
Review by Advantec (Posted on 17/02/2018)
I work at a digital agency and deal with a number of Magento sites, the majority of our clients have a B2B feature on their website, all of which use this module.
It makes what is normally a tedious process a breeze; much better than native Magento functionality!
Review by Roman (Posted on 24/01/2018)
The extension installation was smooth and it works great. I needed some adjustation and the support made it for me in short time.
Excellent plugin and support.
Review by Joe (Posted on 07/08/2017)
Excellent plugin, works with minimal setup. We used automatic settings which created the rules needed to apply the EU VAT rules. Support to help with a couple of technical problems was comprehensive and very quick. Thank you!
Great support, great extension
Review by jonasj (Posted on 12/04/2017)
Very good extension, our own theme on 1.9 posed a lot of problems because the used files are still from 1.6, so many things are missing. Support was very good and always fast, many mails were exchanged. Got it working in the end like a charm. Would recommend!
Works well out of the box
Review by Julian (Posted on 07/03/2017)
Works well out of the box with CE1.9.2. Good documentation and great support. Automated set up is spot on. You may find you want to delete existing tax zone rates in which case this little module will help you https://github.com/GetCommerce/Magento-Mass-Delete-Magento-Tax-Zones-Rates

Review by Steven (Posted on 23/08/2016)
A really great extension! The installing and setting everything up was easy.
It saved my time! Thank you! The price is ok!
Excellent customer service
Review by Nina Berens (Posted on 07/03/2016)
Configuring and getting VAT to work in Magento can be daunting, especially with an EU business. This Magento extension gets your checkout working perfectly, with auto lookups to validate business VAT numbers. A fantastic extension with OUTSTANDING support from Sven, who went over and above what was required to get our unique one page checkout integrated and working with the extension for us. HIGHLY recommended! I wish all developers offered such great customer service. Thank you
Well-Documented, Great Support
Review by elandmann (Posted on 17/01/2015)
Well-documented extension, works great. A nice benefit was tax tables that can be uploaded to get started which helped reduce setup. Support is quick and right-on.
Good product / good service

Superb everything
Review by Sascha Dobbelaere (Posted on 02/08/2013)

Keep up the good work!
Great extension
Review by Wouter (Posted on 17/06/2013)
Does everything it promised. Very satisfied with extension and support for customization.
Very good service
Review by Steven B (Posted on 24/01/2012)
We have this extension for a few months now.
After we did something the extension wasn't working anymore.
After contacting Sven, we had very fast response.
He looked at the problem by making a account etc.
Suddenly the extension worked again, without any problems.
Maybe some cache problem.
However we were surprised by the fast response and ready to help us out.

Need this extension, just by this one!
Great extension!
Review by Pim (Posted on 10/10/2011)
This a a great extension and works like it should! It also includes a very detailed setup guide. Support is also very good! Had a few customisation questions and got helped very quickly.
Install, Setup, Forget!
Review by Paul Hachmang (Posted on 01/09/2011)
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!
