    The Vat-ID is a tax identification number that is used for sales across the border inside the European Union. If you are not from a European Union country or are not a coporate user, you do not need to fill this field.

    The Vat-ID is different from your Company's tax number and is usually issued by your tax office only on request. It starts with your country code and is followed by digits.
