Ah I see. Many apologies, I had misunderstood and thought you were saying your entire code response was the fix, as in completely changing my method. Apologies and thanks again for the response. It still doesn't appear to work but I believe it's to do with using the WSDL. I'm going to attempt to do it without and I think I'll get more success. Thank-you very much. Mark.

    Ah, ok. The entire code is rarely the fix around here, usually its a demonstration.

    And honestly I dislike SOAP strongly, and I barely understand WSDL :)

    There was a recent question, Re^4: checkVat - SOAP::Lite, and I had no clue what was supposed to happen, but it was simpler to use SOAP::Simple, and it turns out, SOAP::Simple is better with WSDL. The whole program boiled down to

    #!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use LWP::Simple qw' mirror '; use SOAP::Simple; use Data::Dumper; my $wsdlUrl = 'http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/checkVatServi +ce.wsdl'; my $wsdlFile = 'checkVatService.wsdl'; mirror( $wsdlUrl, $wsdlFile ); my $soap = SOAP::Simple->new( $wsdlFile ); my ($answer, $trace) = $soap->checkVat( countryCode => "IE", vatNumber => "1234567890", ); print Dumper( $answer ),"\n"; $trace->printRequest; $trace->printResponse; __END__
    The output is
    $VAR1 = { 'parameters' => { 'requestDate' => '2011-05-13+02:00', 'vatNumber' => '1234567890', 'valid' => 0, 'countryCode' => 'IE' } }; Request: POST http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/services/checkVatServ +ice HTTP/1.1 User-Agent: libwww-perl/6.02 Content-Length: 347 Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8" SOAPAction: "" X-LWP-Version: 6.02 X-XML-Compile-Cache-Version: 0.991 X-XML-Compile-SOAP-Version: 2.23 X-XML-Compile-Version: 1.21 X-XML-LibXML-Version: 1.70 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/e +nvelope/"><SOAP-ENV:Body><tns1:checkVat xmlns:tns1="urn:ec.europa.eu: +taxud:vies:services:checkVat:types"><tns1:countryCode>IE</tns1:countr +yCode><tns1:vatNumber>1234567890</tns1:vatNumber></tns1:checkVat></SO +AP-ENV:Body></SOAP-ENV:Envelope> Response: HTTP/1.1 200 OK Connection: Keep-Alive Date: Fri, 13 May 2011 08:01:45 GMT Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 Client-Date: Fri, 13 May 2011 08:01:53 GMT Client-Peer: 147.67.119.103:80 Client-Response-Num: 1 Client-Transfer-Encoding: chunked <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?><soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapen +v="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"><soapenv:Body><urn:chec +kVatResponse xmlns:urn="urn:ec.europa.eu:taxud:vies:services:checkVat +:types"><urn:countryCode>IE</urn:countryCode><urn:vatNumber>123456789 +0</urn:vatNumber><urn:requestDate>2011-05-13+02:00</urn:requestDate>< +urn:valid>false</urn:valid></urn:checkVatResponse></soapenv:Body></so +apenv:Envelope>
    Looks simple indeed :)
