  • 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

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.
