Automatically charge the correct rate of sales tax
Sales taxes based on where your buyers are (not where you are). The sales tax rates are different across products and tax jurisdictions - from country & state down to county and city level (more than 15,000 across the US alone)
VAT and GST rates and exemptions differ between jurisdictions for consumers and businesses too - see the full list here.

Save on sales tax software and filing fees
Tax calculators may appear cheap but are limited to calculating, charging, and producing a report. They also need to be integrated across all your payment methods globally.
Tax intermediaries charge significant fees - often $100s per filing per jurisdiction per year - just to file taxes.

All your sales tax is remitted for you
You need to file and pay your taxes owed in each jurisdiction it with all the associated costs. These fees vary (ask your tax accountant). In some jurisdictions (like Japan), it is mandatory to appoint a local tax agent to file your taxes on your behalf (who cost money and often work in local languages).
Paddle files and pays your sales taxes owed on your behalf, then issues a 'reverse invoice' to for your records to show taxes as paid. You don’t need to do or pay anything extra.
