Hi Erastus

Ofcourse this is possible. Simply add your VAT number under your company its details. On your customer his form you also fill in his e-VAT number.
As you can see on the XML of an invoice the VAT number of your customer is printed by default:

<div class="row">

<div class="col-xs-5 col-xs-offset-7">

<address t-field="o.partner_id"

t-field-options='{"widget": "contact", "fields": ["address", "name"], "no_marker": true}' />

<span t-field="o.partner_id.vat"/>



So when the VAT number of your partner is filled in it will be printed on your invoice!
As for your VAT number.. You can add this in your report (account/views/report_invoice.xml) or in the header of your report (report/views/layouts.xml). The field is in the table res.company in the field res.company.
If you want to include it in your header (layouts.xml) add this line:

<span t-field="company.vat"/>

If you want to add it in your report itself (report_invoice.xml) you should do this:

<span t-field="o.company_id.vat"/>

Thank you for this. I stopped using odoo was not convenient at the time but is back on it again. A very dumb question where do I get the e-vat I cannot see it

Hi you have another easier solution as well.

You can go to the company configuration panel et customize your standard document footer by adding thoses information at the bottom of each document of your system (SO, PO, invoices, etc...) using the company header and footer.
