  • Increase sales by benefitting from EU VAT law
  • Automate EU VAT Id Validation
  • Make price display EU-law compliant

Make your shop fit for the Euro Zone!


Exemptify helps you to increase sales by making your shop compliant with EU VAT regulations and allowing you to conduct proper EU B2B transactions by validating EU VAT IDs.


How does it work?


EU companies are allowed to sell products to other EU companies without charging them VAT. This regulation is called reverse-charge mechanism. In order to be able to issue VAT-exempt invoices, customer and merchant need to have valid EU VAT Ids. It is the merchant's responsibility to validate their customers' VAT Ids in order to benefit from this regulation.


Exemptify completely automates this process by checking the validity of the customers' VAT Ids using the official EU (VIES) database. The Id is then stored in your customer database and VAT is automatically deducted from future orders of the customer. For reporting purposes the Id is added as a note to each order.


Exemptify also helps you to make your shop compliant with EU law by including the VAT in the price displayed to your customers while still allowing you to sell VAT-free to non-EU customers.


Price text and validation error messages are fully customizable and localizable.


Exemptify now also allows you to show prices excluding VAT for non-EU customers and including VAT for EU customers.

Is it difficult to set up?


No. You need to


  1. Enter your own VAT Id

  2. Enter your VAT rate

  3. Copy two code snippets to your theme

Installed this app yesterday on our site www.winchshop.co.uk, had quite a few problems with integration due to theme we were using, contacted Thorsten from extensions@modules4u.biz and he has done a 5* service sorting all the problems, would recommend as a great addition to your site.

The cheaper and best app for EU tax exempt !

This is the perfect solution for any business trading from Germany as it elegantly complies with German regulations. Furthermore it seamlessly integrates, is a breeze to install and support is 1st class. Highly recommended.

Great app! It settles the issue with Shopify not being designed for EU tax exempt customers. Plus Thorsten is extremely helpful! Just perfect!

Exemptify just checks if the VAT-ID exists.

In Germany the law says that the verification has to be done "with the diligence of a prudent businessman". Many sources on the web as well as our tax advisor state that only the "qualified validation" which also verifies the address meets this requirement. Consequently in case of an audit any merchant just checking the existence of the VAT-ID likely will have to pay VAT for any purchases with a (valid) VAT grabbed from the net where the address does not match the buyer's.

I'd happily update this review if anything I stated is not accurate.

Excellent App for EU-ID. Very good and fast support, service. Thank you :-)

We decided to go for Exemptify as we needed to be able to sell to European Business Customers with a EU tax exempt. There are not many solutions, and most app vendors (including Shopify) do most of the times not understand the different tax and consumer laws in Europe. Exemptify does allow you to have prices excl. VAT in Shopify, add the tax amount when needed, add no tax when a customer has a valid tax exempt, and still show consumer pricing INCLUDING VAT in your store at all times. Not like the US, Canada, UK, etc calculating and showing it when checking out.
It was not flawless from day one, as we had to do some adjustments to our stores template. But Thorsten was very responsive, very helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. So now we are very happy with our perfect working solution for now, thanks to Thorsten. Our store has grown tremendously since then.
Good to see that there are app developers who are able to compensate for a fairly major flaw in a product (Shopify) which is basically not yet made for the European market. The same is true for languages in Shopify !
