### NAME

CheckDigits::M97_001 - compute check digits for VAT Registration Number (BE)

### SYNOPSIS

```

use Algorithm::CheckDigits;

\$ustid = CheckDigits(ustid_be);

if (\$ustid->is_valid(136695962)) {
# do something
}

\$cn = \$ustid->complete(1366959);
# \$cn = 136695962

\$cd = \$ustid->checkdigit(136695962);
# \$cd = 62

\$bn = \$ustid->basenumber(136695962);
# \$bn = 1366959

```

### DESCRIPTION

#### ALGORITHM

 1. The whole number (without checksum) is taken modulo 97. 2. The checksum is difference of the remainder from step 1 to 97.

#### METHODS

 is_valid(\$number) Returns true only if \$number consists solely of numbers and the last digit is a valid check digit according to the algorithm given above. Returns false otherwise, complete(\$number) The check digit for \$number is computed and concatenated to the end of \$number. Returns the complete number with check digit or ’’ if \$number does not consist solely of digits and spaces. basenumber(\$number) Returns the basenumber of \$number if \$number has a valid check digit. Return ’’ otherwise. checkdigit(\$number) Returns the checkdigits of \$number if \$number has a valid check digit. Return ’’ otherwise.

None by default.
