Switch Off Need For Tax ID/VAT in Invoice For Company

1 week 2 days ago #308976 by bins
How can I switch of the requirement for a VAT number if someone enters a business name?

VAT registration is not compulsory in the UK and we are getting dropped membership subscriptions because companies cannot enter a VAT number!

I thought we handled this a couple years ago, but we have lost several members because they are getting stuck here. Could this have been changed during an upgrade?

There's no feature to turn off VAT requirement if VAT is supplied (e.g. you can't supply VAT and it ignore validation; VAT field it self is not mandatory). Invoice address validation is done in the below file, which you'd have to modify to remove that validation.

Have retested with and without mandatory invoice address and wasn't able to confirm your issue. With Company Name only supplied while leaving VAT empty it saves the invoice and allows the purchase to go through perfectly fine. It should only validate the VAT if supplied. Are you sure they're not just typing in VAT by mistake? You should have at least 2 tax rules as I understand it. 1 for EU consumer and 1 for EU business and should apply the tax rate accordingly.

If it is still having issues please provide the exact steps your taking including any sample data for invoice address (feel free to PM this information) so we can attempt to reproduce your issue.

I have tax rules set up for UK only (UK memberships only)!

If I switch off 'Customer invoicing address/Invoicing address handling at payment time' what will that do? Will the members details used at registration be used?

EDIT: Switching customer invoicing off will switch entirely invoice addresses. Not what you wish, I guess.

The VAT field is never mandatory to fill-up in CBSubs invoice edits.

Not sure what exact issue you are reporting ?

In your tax rates, what setting do you have for "Methods to validate that the customer is a business (B2) for this tax" ?

I have switched off customer invoicing which makes things much better, however, the VAT calculation stops. EDIT -the member address is shown on the invoice.

In every case for us the member address is the invoice address. Everything has VAT and we only sell in the UK.

I want to show VAT, but have no need to record the VAT number or check its validity.
