Why Stripe Tax

Don’t let taxes hold you back

Internet businesses are required to collect taxes in over 130 countries and in most US states. Staying compliant can be challenging, especially as your business scales. Tax rules and rates change constantly and 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 growing your business.

On average, there is a 30% interest penalty on overdue 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 overdue taxes out of your own pocket.

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

In 2021, the United States will introduce around 400 rate changes.

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 will change 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 US$100,000 in sales or 200 transactions in most states to US$500,000 in CA, NY and TX.

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.

Tax localisation

Reduce checkout friction by calculating taxes based on the available location information and show taxes in the most familiar way to your customers.

Tax ID validation

Stripe Tax helps you collect the tax identification number from B2B customers. You can automatically validate VAT IDs for European 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 reports surface all the information you need for each filing location, so you can easily file and remit taxes on your own, with your accountant, or with a preferred partner.
