The Evidence of Trade is the proof of the intention of creating a tax declaration in a foreign country which shows, aside other information, where the warehouse you are selling from is located.

In other words, Evidence of Trade is needed in order to prove you are storing goods in the country you are applying for VAT number.

The following example shows the Tax Authorities where to find a warehouse in the Czech Republic(a warehouse from where you are shipping goods). 

In this example, the most relevant information is highlighted in yellow (Vat number/ Shipping date/Ship from information/ Vat rate which is applying in this situation) and the rest is rather common invoice information.
