Summary0005806: Online VAT ID check doesn't work
DescriptionIn EE:
According to the help text in backend, VAT isn't calculated if there is a correct VAT ID entered during checkout and your billing address is a foreign country but EU.
But if I enter a wrong VAT ID, there is also no VAT included.
Steps To ReproduceIn EE-Demoshop:
- Make sure online VAT ID check isn't disabled. (Core Settings->Settings->VAT->"Disable online VAT ID check" is not checked)
- Put something into basket.
- Billing address: Choose an EU country and enter wrong VAT ID (e.g. Austria and 'xyz')
- Go to final step
- VAT is set to 0 and no hint that there was a wrong VAT ID entered

I tested some more VAT IDs. Everytime I used an Austrian address.

DE 123 -> invalid
DE123 -> valid
DE-123 -> valid
So forget to make a space or make a hyphen instead of a space and your ID is always correct.

OXIDs VAT ID, as copied from our website, is DE 231 450 866.
DE 231 450 866 -> invalid
DE 231450866 -> valid
So additional spaces will make your VAT ID invalid, but no hint is given in what format the ID should be entered.
Is it okay, that I entered a German ID and an Austrian address and that is not seen as invalid?
