Version 1.4.4 of ID Validation, which we released today, fixes an error within the interface of the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt). It happened that a timeout of the interface was reported, which could lead to aborted processing or partially empty results in the output file.
Please update to the new version as soon as possible. The new timeout is set to 60 seconds. This should fix just about all requests for the existing problems. In the versions of ID Validation or the VAT Validation module, the default timeout was 5 seconds.
We will continue to test the Federal Central Tax Office interface to reduce this timeout again in the future.
If you have any other errors or longer responses beyond this timeout, please let us know. Only if we hear about it, we can correct our module of the VAT Validation.
