    Set ID = SHARE
    Supplier ID = NEXT
    Persistence = Regular

8. Define the following values:
    Country = GBR
    VAT Registration ID = GD002

10. The system throws the Error Message
11. Make the same tests with all needed values, to confirm the problem at hand


     " Invalid VAT Registration ID (7450,15)"


Government Suppliers/Vendors cannot be properly configured for their Value Added Tax (VAT) set up, which delays any transactions that need to be booked against them.


The system should not prevent the User from defining a VAT Registration ID value that has been successfully validated at the European Commission Taxation & Customs website.
