VAT value is not deducted - Invalid VAT Number

Our system automatically validates the VAT number, and if it fails to validate, you will see 'Invalid' error message in your 'My Account'. In this case, the VAT value will NOT be deducted from your order.

If you see 'Invalid' status in your 'My Account or the VAT value is NOT calculated during the ordering process, please go through the following points:

1) Delivery address must match with the registered VAT number (business) address. If the delivery address is in the UK, you will need to pay the VAT.

2) Check that you are typing the correct format of VAT number, as defined here > 

3) Makes sure your VAT number is verifiable on the official EU website > 
If your VAT number is not valid on that website, then you must report this issue to the tax authorities in the country where you are registered.
