When to register for tax collection
Use the Thresholds tab to get insights about your potential tax registration obligations in France. Stripe also notifies you with email and Dashboard alerts when you need to register to collect tax. Learn more about how the monitoring tool works.
How to register
Different registration schemes could apply to your business, depending on whether you’re based inside or outside the EU. After you’ve decided which registration scheme is correct for your business, learn how to register in France.
After you’ve registered to collect tax in France, add your registrations to Stripe in the Registrations tab in the Dashboard. This turns on tax calculation and collection in Stripe for your transactions in France.

How we calculate taxes
France applies the EU VAT rules. Learn more about tax calculation in the European Union.
In France, there are some territories outside of the scope of the standard tax system and may have different rules that should apply. Stripe won’t calculate tax for customers based there, even if you’ve added a registration for France. Learn more about how Stripe handles excluded territories. This applies to the following locations:
- Saint Barthélemy
- Saint Martin
- Saint Pierre and Miquelon
- Wallis and Futuna
How to report and file your taxes
You’re responsible for filing and remitting your taxes to France. Stripe doesn’t file taxes on your behalf. For Europe, we recommend using our partners Taxually or Marosa, who can help manage your filing and remittance.
