How complex are sales tax regulations today?
As a software business, you owe sales tax where your customers are.
That means you need to register, charge, file & remit the correct sales tax in every taxable jurisdiction you sell software in - country, state, even county-level.
That’s thousands of separate tax jurisdictions with different tax rates, product rules, languages, currencies, and filing processes that you need to keep on top of every month.
Update sales tax rates
Checkout, invoice & receipts
State & country registration
B2B & non-profit adjustments
Ongoing filing & remittance
Prepare for tax audits
Pay backwards liability
“You don’t have to be big to be caught by the tax authorities”
⚠️ Late registration, filing, and payments attract penalties and interest over the weeks and months of non-compliance. This also delays and even blocks your key liquidity events like fundraising, acquisitions, and IPOs.
⚠️ Repeated offences & blatant tax evasion earn punitive fines for companies and company officers, and (in many countries) prison sentences.
⚠️ Tax accountants & calculators don't take liability but you do. When you can't shift liability, it's your responsibility to get it right.
