Hello, We just tried to check a VAT number from Ireland ( IE2974508SH ) This was not not accepted by local check because there are two letters at the end. However the number is valid in the VIES database. I suspect the Ireland formate has been changed. When doing a search I found where it says that Irish VAT numbers can have two letters at the end. Therefore I propose tho change the regex for Ireland to : IE => '[0-9][A-Za-z0-9\+\*][0-9]{5}[A-Za-z]{1,2}', Then this would work again for those new numbers.

[...] Just to note that this problem bit us at $work too - I've been in touch with Bernard (BPGN) to offer to take over maintainership of this module and get a new version out with this fixed and Croatia recognised etc, he indicated he'd be open to that but is currently with limited net access - I've asked him if he can assign permissions via PAUSE, if he can't then I'll ask the CPAN admins to help out. As soon as I have permissions I'll get an updated version released. Cheers Dave P (BIGPRESH)

Happy to say I've now taken over maintainership of the distribution (kind thanks to Bernard), and I've now released version 1.10 which solves this issue.
