The message "This VAT number doesn't exists in EU database." ^ should probably be changed to something like "This VAT number does not exist in the EU database." Regards, fany

Hello, thank you for your intervention. It seems that there is no typo error as the verb "to exist" is "he/she/it exists" at the third person of the indicative present. Kind regards, Bernard

yes, but when you negate it, you have to use the infinitive form: does not exist Likewise, you would not say "didn't existed"(, would you?), but "didn't exist"; again: infinitive form in negation.
