Hide Tax/Vat Number Field from customer admin form based on Customer Group.

You can hide Tax/Vat Number field and only show based on specific selected group like 1

You can change group value as you want show/hide on Tax/Vat Number field.

Follow below steps:

File path: magento/app/code/Vendor/CustomerForm/registration.php



File path: magento/app/code/Vendor/CustomerForm/etc/module.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Vendor_CustomerForm" setup_version="1.0.0">
            <module name="Magento_Customer"/>

File path: magento/app/code/Vendor/CustomerForm/view/adminhtml/ui_component/customer_form.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<form xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Ui:etc/ui_configuration.xsd">    
    <fieldset name="customer">
            <label translate="true">Account Information</label>
        <container name="container_group" component="Magento_Ui/js/form/components/group" sortOrder="20">
            <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="type" xsi:type="string">group</item>
                <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Group</item>
                    <item name="required" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>
                    <item name="dataScope" xsi:type="boolean">false</item>
                    <item name="validateWholeGroup" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>
            <field name="group_id" formElement="select">
                <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                        <item name="fieldGroup" xsi:type="string">group_id</item>
                        <item name="component" xsi:type="string">Vendor_CustomerForm/js/customer</item>
                        <item name="source" xsi:type="string">customer</item>
        <field name="taxvat" formElement="input">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="source" xsi:type="string">customer</item>
                <rule name="required-entry" xsi:type="boolean">true</rule>

File path: magento/app/code/Vendor/CustomerForm/view/adminhtml/web/js/customer.js

], function (_, uiRegistry, select, modal) {
    'use strict';

    return select.extend({
        onUpdate: function (value) {

            var taxvat = uiRegistry.get('index = taxvat');
            if(value == 1) {
            } else {
            return this._super();

Try this above code and let me know if any issue.

Hope it help!
