Who runs it?
The vatlayer API is a product built and maintained by apilayer, an Austrian technology company aiming to build a variety of reliable programming interfaces (APIs) and make them affordable for developers and startups.
APILAYER LTD is headquartered in the United Kingdom, with offices in London, and Vienna, Austria.
At vatlayer we aim to provide the highest possible level of data accuracy and response speed possible. In order to achieve this for every API request, our VAT information API relies on multiple servers and a distinct "fallback & validation" mechanism, consisting of a fairly large number of different data sources, which include the European Commission's databases.
