Supported Tax Types

Displaying a tax ID on invoice documents is a common requirement that you can satisfy by adding tax IDs to an account. Tax IDs are displayed in the header of invoice and credit note PDFs.


You're responsible for the accuracy of your account information, including its tax ID number. Our invoices include the tax ID you provided regardless of whether it's valid.

MikroCloud uses automatic validation to help determine if the formatting is correct when you add the ID to our system. We may later add this information to the Tax ID Object, including details returned from government databases, and the registered name and address. However, we don't continue to validate them over time.

Australian Business Numbers (ABN)

MikroCloud automatically validates all Australian Business Numbers (ABNs) with the Australian Business Register (ABR).

European Value-Added-Tax (EU VAT) Numbers

MikroCloud also automatically validates all European Value-Added-Tax (EU VAT) numbers with the European Commission's VAT Information Exchange System (VIES). This process only validates whether the tax ID is valid and is matched against the provided account name.

VIES validation usually takes only a few seconds, but depending on the availability of various government databases, might take longer. MikroCloud automatically handles VIES downtime and attempts retries.

United Kingdom Value-Added-Tax (GB VAT) Numbers

MikroCloud automatically validates all UK Value-Added-Tax (GB VAT) numbers with the United Kingdom’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC). This process only validates whether or not the tax ID is valid and is matched against the provided account name.

HMRC validation usually takes only a few seconds, but depending on the availability of various government databases, might take longer. MikroCloud automatically handles VIES downtime and attempts retries.
