Provide documents for VAT validation


I am registered as an interpreneur in The Netherlands and have an VAT number, but its not getting validated, because its registered on a company name in VIES website, not my personal name.


How I can provide you with a document showing I own the business for VAT to be approved?

I have the document, but do not know how should I provide it. There is no such an option as submit the document in my VAT tax settings and without it it just getting declined.


Hope for your help. Thank you.

I have the same problem. Can you please tell me how to provide the documents?


Hi Daniele,


Could you please check if the VIES website is able to validate your VAT number? If so, please add your VAT number in the same exact format that VIES is able to validate it.


Thank you!

Thanks for the reply Bojan!

Yes, I'm in the VIES register and that tool said my VAT is valid. Unfortunatly on my UpWork dashboard it says "not approved".


I read that in case of EU-VAT I have to provide the documents.

You can check it if you want: 02617900697 (Italy).


Thanks again
