Check Tax ID Numbers with Quick Check
Quick Check allows you to quickly and easily check any tax ID number for over 100 countries to see if it is valid. To access Quick Check, you must create an account, then navigate to the Validate page.
To use Quick Check, you simply choose a Country and Type, then enter the tax ID number. For a more detailed explanation of each step in the process, keep reading.
Step 1: Select a Country
Select a country by searching for the country name in the Country input box. If you do not see the country you are looking for, please refer to the Supported Countries page for a complete list of supported countries.
Step 2: Select a Type
You can use the type dropdown to restrict the validation to Individual, Entity, or VAT. For example, if you select Entity for the United States, Tax ID Pro will only test to see if the number is a valid Employer Identification Number.
By default, the type dropdown menu is set to Any. This will check all known tax ID number formats for a given country, and if the number meets the validation criteria for one or more of those formats, the number will be considered valid. For example, if you are validating a tax ID number for the United States, Tax ID Pro will check to see if it is either a valid Social Security Number, Employer Identification Number, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.
Tax ID Pro categorizes tax ID types for each country according to each country's policies and procedures. Some countries share formats across multiple categories. Some have distinct formats for each category.
Step 3: Enter the Tax ID Number
You can type the tax ID number, or copy and paste it from another source. As soon as you stop typing, Quick Check will begin testing the number for length, structure, and if the format uses a checksum, it will run the checksum algorithm. If the number passes all of our tests, Tax ID Pro will tell you that the number is valid.
You get 100 free validations with a free trial account, or you can use unlimited validations with monthly or yearly account. Check out our pricing to learn more.
