Greek VAT says it's invalid

Hey there,

 

I recently received an email that asks me to enter my VAT.

When I do enter it, it says it's invalid - I've tried both WITH and WITHOUT the country code prefix (GR) and in both cases it says 

This VAT number is invalid.

 

even-though I know this is my real vat.

 

I don't own a company, I just rent my private property as an individual and I'm not sure what to do.

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

The country code prefix for Greek VAT numbers is EL but still we get a response that says it's invalid! Please this needs to be fixed. We do own a company and our VAT number checks as valid on VIES VAT number validation. We need the invoices to be issued to our VAT number. So please fix!

I have the same problem, I don't have a company, I rent my house as a natural person and not as a company. Do I need to fill in my tax registration number?

Hello everyone! Thanks for flagging this problem. From what I managed to find out, it looks like some partners are facing this kind of difficulty. The good thing is that the product team is fully aware of the problem, and that our partners mention it in the Partner Community. So right now the team is working on the ways to solve it. It will probably take time.

So please let me know in the comments if you still see this problem after a few days.

The recent news I can share is that the developers team fixed the bug for the Greek market. And the product team is making sure our connection to VIES works smoothly. The final testing maybe will take a little more time.

Hello, I'm trying to enter the Greek VAT on the Finance tab, and always says it is invalid. The 9-numbers code of VAT I enter is correct. I tried several options: the 9-numbers alone, with GR prefix, with EL prefix, with ΕΛ prefix... nothing, It always says "This VAT number is invalid." Pls. help :-( the VAT is necessary!!!
