Create sample files

Today we have released new versions for all our products for master data verification right away. The reason for this is the two new functions that we have implemented for all products.

Create sample files

Due to several requests on how to build an import file, we have created the possibility to generate a sample file for all formats (CSV, JSON and XLSX). This contains the correct structure and can be used as a basis for the import.

These are available for selection via the Extras – Sample files menu. Just select the location and the file will be created.

Installation without administration rights

The lack of authorization when installing our application should not be a reason for not being able to use the software. We have therefore changed our installation routine to allow you to install our software products in your user context without needing administration rights. We hope that this will allow us to help not only one, but several customers (and those who would like to become one) to provide support in checking master data.

The update with version 2022.05.04 is available for all software products (VAT-Validation, EORI-Validation, Swiss-UID-Validation and Duplicate-Check).

Correction: VAT-Validation and special characters

The version of our VAT-Validation released today corrects a bug in the processing of special characters. If certain characters were returned, such as a single apostrophe, it could cause the processing to be aborted under certain conditions.

This termination could result in an audit being incorrectly evaluated as negative. This resulted in a VAT ID number being returned as invalid. In some cases, processing was also aborted completely.

We would only be able to reproduce the behavior in the VIES interface (the BZSt interface is not affected) and here, interestingly enough, not even in every test run.

Nevertheless, we have changed the complete processing of special characters within the data of companies (company name, street, etc.).

Your assistance:

If you find that you have records that are incorrectly returned as invalid, but they are returned as valid in the online offerings of the respective institutions, please send us that record.

Please send them on the page of our support.

VAT-Validation 2021.12.20

We have released a new version of our VAT-Validation today.

Unlike the previous version, you can now drag a file to the VAT-Validation regardless of the mouse position. This allows you to operate the batch processing more easily.

We have revised some dialogs of the application and additionally corrected the English translation in some places.

Once again, we would like to point out that we appreciate any feedback on our VAT-Validation. This is the only way we can always improve.
