Europe VAT 1.0.20 Release Notes

Europe VAT 1.0.20 contains fixes and improvements. It is recommended that you upgrade as soon as possible.



  1. Any attempt to validate a VAT number ti show the valid/invalid icon on the store front or as an admin editing a customer account is now logged in the database. 
  2. A limit of 3 attempts to show valid/invalid status on the store front or admin area is allowed per user per 5 minute window. This only applies to the user interface, automated checks when editing a VAT number are still performed.
  3. The jQuery code in the install guide which is added to the store theme has been improved



  1. If the VIES validation service is unavailable the module would throw a PHP fatal error which could take the store front offline under some conditions. If VIES is not available there is no longer a PHP fatal error.

Upgrade Instructions

  1. If you have made modifications to the TEMPLATE FILE found in __template_files take a backup of this file before moving to step 2
  2. Delete the "europe_vat" directory and replace it with the directory found in the downloaded ZIP file
  3. IMPORTANT Review the module configuration, define your country code. Failure to add this will stop the module from working correctly.
  4. If you took a backup of a custom TEMPLATE FILE, put this back into the _template_files directory, overwrite the existing file.
  5. the jQuery code which is added to your store theme has changed. The old code must be removed from your store theme and the new code added. Review items 6 and 8 from the install guide, remove the existing code from your theme and add the new code.
