Hi,

 

EU standards are applicable to France. A French VAT number contains 11 digits, however, it should be preceded by FR like in FR - 12345678901.

 

Best,

In fact a VAT number as issued by French tax authorities and used on the VAT declarations is 15 digits after the FR but is made up of different numbers as follows

 

FR +  2 digits + the company number (9 digits) + 4 digits for the location.

The number required is thus the 11 numbers straight after the country code FR excluding thus the 4 digit location code

Country code for France

‘FR’+ 2 digits (as validation key ) + 9 digits (as SIREN), the first and/or the second value can also be a character – e.g. FRXX999999999The French key is calculated as follow : Key = [ 12 + 3 * ( SIREN modulo 97 ) ] modulo 97, for example  : Key = [ 12 + 3 * ( 404,833,048 modulo 97 ) ] modulo 97 = [12 + 3*56] modulo 97 = 180 modulo 97 = 83 so the tax number for 404,833,048 is FR 83,404,833,04
