Hello Valeria,
LOD does not have data on VAT codes or company registration numbers.
Researchers have done this exercise before, and it mostly boils down to linking patent applicant names with company names. This exercise has been done by various researchers using the Amadeus data from Bureau Van Dijck. ... AmadeusNeo
You might want to post your question on the PATSTAT forum as well to reach out to users that have the linked PATSTAT - BVD data.
US patent data has been linked to Compustat
