Connection to the UK VAT Lookup established
Since Brexit validation of GB VAT IDs is no longer possible via the European Commission's VIES services. The United Kingdom has established its own service for validating GB VAT IDs. Our data pool now connects to this service as an additional data source. This will allow for considering this service for VAT validation and for showing additional matches with the business partner lookup.
