Hi Pedro,

Human readable format is : BE 0441.656.539
In Odoo you have to type : BE0441656539 (the check is a modulo 97)

fwiw, in odoo you can also type BE 0438 081 395 ( so with spaces instead of points )

A VAT number can be assigned to a physical person, or to a registered organisation.  The ID card number is actually not useful at all for VAT purposes.

Also take into account, if you store a person ID card number, or his personal registration number, you must check privacy regulations.  When a belgian citizen gets a new ID card, the ID card number is a different number, but the personal registration number stays the same.
