German term or phrase:Mehrwertsteuerausweis
I have seen this as "VAT identification," but I don't quite understand _whose_ it would be, if that is indeed the correct translation:
Der Verkäufer wird dem Käufer gemäß §§ 14, 14a UStG nach Fälligkeit eine zum Vorsteuerabzug berechtigende Rechnung über den Kaufpreis ohne Mehrwertsteuerausweis ausstellen.
@David: the point is that you *can't* reclaim input tax *unless* VAT is stated on the face of the invoice, so if the seller issues an invoice that does not show the VAT on the net amount, the buyer can't reclaim input VAT.
Are you sure that the German text you've reproduced is correct, Tegan? The point is that the buyer can only reclaim input tax (Vorsteuer) if the invoice specifically states VAT, i.e. the net amount, the amount of VAT and the VAT amount.

Explanation: I believe the VAT ID is actually a number. It would be ID of the person issuing the invoice.
