Got this message from a translation agency regarding EU Tax number:
Yes, it is a condition to have a valid EU Tax number to work with us. So, if you decide to apply for such a number it would be great. Alternatively you could try to borrow such a number from friends or relatives."
I am guessing the obvious answer is NO, it is not legal. How would someone be able to apply for a EU Tax number if the person isn't a citizen of a EU country, right? How about borrowing a EU Tax number from a friend, do people do that?
