Installation

Installation:

npm i jsvat --save or yarn add jsvat

For legacy versions (below v2.0.0) also possible: Bower: bower i jsvat --save

Getting Started

import { checkVAT, belgium, austria } from 'jsvat'; 
 
checkVAT('BE0411905847', [belgium]); // true: accept only Belgium VATs
checkVAT('BE0411905847', [belgium, austria]); // true: accept only Belgium or Austria VATs 
checkVAT('BE0411905847', [austria]); // false: accept only Austria VATs

Return value

checkVAT() returns a Result Object:

 
export interface VatCheckResult {
    value?: string; // 'BE0411905847': your VAT without extra characters (like '-', spaces, etc)
    isValid: boolean; // main result - is VAT correct against provided countries or not
    country?: { // VAT's couuntry (null if not found)
        name: string; // ISO country name of VAT
        isoCode: { // Country ISO codes
            short: string;
            long: string;
            numeric: string;
        };
    };
}

How to import all countries at once?

import { checkVAT, countries } from 'jsvat';
// const { checkVAT, countries } = require('jsvat');
 
checkVAT('WD12345678', countries);

Extend countries list - add your own country:

You can add your own country. In general Country should implement following structure:

interface Country {
    name: string;
    codes: ReadonlyArray<string>;
    calcFn: (vat: string, options?: object) => boolean; //options - isn't a mandatory param
    rules: {
       multipliers: {}; // you can leave it empty 
       regex: ReadonlyArray<RegExp>;
   };
}

Example:

import { checkVAT } from 'jsvat';
 
export const wonderland = {
  name: 'Wonderland',
  codes: ['WD', 'WDR', '999'], // This codes should follow ISO standards (short, long and numeric), but it's your own business
  calcFn: (vat) => {
    return vat.length === 10;
  },
  rules: {
    regex: [/^(WD)(\d{8})$/]
  }
};
 
checkVAT('WD12345678', [wonderland]); // true
 

About modules... ES6 / CommonJS / AMD / UMD / System

jsvat build includes es6, commonjs, amd, umd and system builds at the same time.

By default you will stick to es6 version for browsers and build tools (webpack, etc): which expects you to import it as

import { checkVAT, belgium, austria } from 'jsvat';

Node.js automatically will pick up CommonJS version by default. Means you could import it like:

// Modern Frontend and Node
const { checkVAT, belgium, austria } = require('jsvat'); 
 
 // Node.js
const { checkVAT, belgium, austria } = require('jsvat');
 
// Legacy Frontend
<script src="whatever/jsvat/lib/umd/index.js"></script>

Alternatively you can specify which module system you do want, e.g.:

// CommonJS (i.g nodejs)
const { checkVAT, belgium, austria } = require('jsvat/lib/commonjs');
 
// ES6
import { checkVAT, belgium, austria } from 'jsvat/lib/es6';
 
// UMD
<script src="whatever/jsvat/lib/umd/index.js"></script>
 
// AMD
const { checkVAT, belgium, austria } = require('jsvat/lib/amd');
 
// System
import { checkVAT, belgium, austria } from 'jsvat/lib/system';

How jsvat checks validity?

There is 2-step check:

  1. Compare with list of Regexps;

For example regexp for austria is /^(AT)U(\d{8})$/.

Looks like ATU99999999 is valid (it's satisfy the regexp), but actually it's should be invalid.

  1. Some magic mathematical counting;

Here we make some mathematical calculation (different for each country). After that we may be sure that ATU99999999and for example ATV66889218 isn't valid, but ATU12011204 is valid.

NOTE: VAT numbers of some countries should ends up with special characters. Like '01' for Sweden or "L" for Cyprus. If 100% real VAT doesn't fit, try to add proper appendix.

Browsers Supports

Support only of evergreen browsers.

Legacy versions (below v2.0.0) supports all browsers down to IE9 (including IE9).
