Missing Functions in the Standard Are

Your Challenge without the Add-On

In the standard version of Dynamics 365 Business Central, you have basic VAT ID verification functions: you can only check the VAT ID against the VAT Information Exchange System (VIES) in customer, vendor, and contact master data, and log this verification. We have a convenient solution from our partner company Visiondata that offers much more.
