Why Stripe Tax

Don’t let taxes hold you back

Businesses are required to collect taxes in more than 130 countries and in most US states. Staying compliant can be challenging, especially as your business grows. Tax rules and rates change constantly, and they vary based on what and where you sell. If you ignore these complexities, you risk paying penalties and interest on top of uncollected taxes.

We built Stripe Tax to simplify tax compliance, so you can focus on scaling your business.

On average, there is a 30% interest penalty on past-due sales tax in the US.

European registration thresholds vary from €0 in Spain to £85,000 in the UK.

Over 130 countries are taxing digital goods and more countries are planning to impose taxes on digital goods.

Non-EU businesses selling digital goods and services into the EU must collect taxes from their very first sale.

If you don’t collect sales tax from your customers, you’ll have to pay past-due taxes out of your own pocket.

SaaS sales are 100% taxable in New York, 80% in Texas, and non-taxable in California.

In Europe, businesses selling digital products generally need to collect two pieces of non-conflicting evidence to validate a customer’s location.

SaaS is only taxable in some US states, and sometimes only B2B or B2C SaaS is taxed.

Over 80% of startups on Stripe sell into more than 20 states and countries.

In 2021, over 20 countries changed their VAT rates for certain products.

Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon don’t charge state sales tax.

72% of online businesses see compliance as a barrier to international growth.

US sales tax registration thresholds for remote sellers vary from $100,000 in sales or 200 transactions in most states to $500,000 in CA, NY, and TX.

South Africa and Russia require foreign businesses to charge VAT on B2B SaaS transactions.

2

Know where to register

Stripe Tax monitors your transactions and tells you when and where you have obligations to register to collect taxes.

3

Automatically collect taxes

Stripe Tax determines your customer’s precise location and always calculates and collects the right amount of tax. It also validates the EU VAT ID and Australian ABN number when needed.

4

File and remit with ease

Speed up filing and remittance with comprehensive reports for each market in which you’re registered.

Step 1

Get started in minutes

No-code setup

If you’re using one of Stripe’s no-code products, such as Invoicing and Payment Links, you can collect taxes with the click of a button in the Dashboard.

Low-code setup

Start collecting taxes by adding as little as one line of code to your existing Stripe Billing or Checkout integration.

API Setup

Start collecting taxes in your custom checkout integration using the Stripe Tax API.

Automate tax with any payment processor

Calculate and report tax on all payments—even ones that are processed outside of Stripe. With the Stripe Tax API you get the flexibility to use multiple payment processors without added tax complexity.

Step 2

Know where to register

Stripe Tax is optimized for tax calculation in 50 countries and all US states. Understand where you need to collect taxes and activate tax collection in a new market in seconds. Stripe Tax supports both country and VAT OSS registrations in Europe, and country and provincial registrations in Canada.

Step 3

Automatically collect taxes

Always calculate and collect the correct amount of tax, no matter what or where you sell. Stripe Tax supports tax collection on hundreds of products and services and keeps tax rules and rates up to date—so you don’t have to.

Tax localization

Reduce checkout friction by showing taxes in the most familiar way to your customers, based on the available location information such as currency or zip code.

Tax ID validation

Stripe Tax helps you collect the tax identification number from B2B customers. You can automatically validate VAT IDs and ABNs for European and Australian customers, and apply a reverse charge or zero VAT rate when necessary.

Step 4

File and remit with ease

Save time when reconciling thousands of transactions. Stripe Tax summarizes reports to match formatting requirements for each filing location so you can easily file and remit taxes on your own, with your accountant, or with a preferred partner.
