Tax authorities have mandated new VAT numbers for entrepeneurs which fail Oracle validation.


Hi there

Recently the Dutch authorities changed the VAT numbers for a set of Dutch entrepeneurs. For us Dutch speakers; please check https://www.belastingdienst.nl/wps/wcm/connect/nl/btw/content/gebruik-vanaf-1-januari-2020-uw-nieuwe-btw-identificatienummer, otherwise https://www.orangetax.com/2019/10/new-vat-number/ has some information in English.

Our customer found that the new VAT numbers fail the seeded validation available in Oracle with below error message 

The tax registration number doesn't comply with the check digit algorithm. (ZX-885653)
Cause The tax registration number doesn't comply with the check digit algorithm applied to registration numbers for country {COUNTRY_NAME}.

Howdy, Stranger!
