Just bought some online photo software [through digital download] direct from an American company.

They have charged me VAT, which I know some companies can do, if they're in the EU, but this is the States, so I'd like to know if they're legit.

They're VAT number is: VAT ID EU826011714

How can I find out if this is theirs and not just a made-up set of figures?!

I know about the site where you can verify EU member states' numbers, but obviously, they're not EU to start with...

Many thanks

This seems to provide some answers, although this isn't the company I was purchasing from:

Still seems odd to me...
it seems pretty clear to me - you bought the goods and they were supplied to you in the UK, therefore they are subject to VAT, no matter they were delivered from USA
