Hungary:

A suggested way to mass-validate Hungarian VAT numbers!

1. Compile a simple text file that has the first eight digits of the Hungarian VAT numbers you want to validate. (So from HU11157814, it will be 11157814. If it is in national format 11157814-2-20 then cut the last three digits.) The separator is the Enter / end-of-line.

(You may use unlimited number of VAT numbers in theory, however over 5,000 numbers the query will run over 2-3 minutes…)

2. Follow this link:
http://www.nav.gov.hu/nav/adatbazisok/ADATBLEKER/afaalanyok/afaalanyok_csoportos

3. Use the ‘Browse’ button to select your file. Upload by hitting ‘Kiválasztott állomány betöltése’.

4. Your results will appear, you may download a simple text file, by clicking on ‘Nyugta file letöltése’. The text has semicolon ‘;’ as a field separator.
