How to set up Magento 2 vat number validation?

The Checkout VAT module is a part of FireCheckout. We added it to the package to help your clients validate VAT numbers during checkout. The option is available now in checkout shipping and billing address forms. We integrated the Checkout VAT with VIES validation service.

To start configuring the module, go Stores - Configuration - Swissup Checkout - Tax VAT.
