The company validation service allows you to validate and correct company names and addresses, commercial register entries and/or VAT IDs of organizations in Germany – directly when entering them.
For your search, three different search methods are available. Depending on the search method, a search for the company name/ address, for the entry in the commercial register, or for the VAT ID can be used to validate and, if necessary, correct the company data or adding missing information to it. If the search yields multiple results, the service outputs a list which is sorted by quality in descending order.
Besides a verification of the company data, Company validation can also provide the prerequisites for conducting VAT-free transactions according to the reverse charge procedure within the European Union.
