Provides free VAT fallback mechanism
Vatfallback module provides an extra API based validation and a fallback offline regex validation for the unstable VIES database used by Magento
Please find the Magento 1 version here.
1) A plugin wraps the existing Vat check in Magento Customer implementing various services as fallback.
2) Use the console task:
./bin/magento vat:validate NL NL133001477B01
3) Use the API endpoint to get company data by VAT number
