Founded in Germany in 2016, eClear is the only VAT and Customs Clearing House in Europe. With eClear’s innovative automation solutions, retailers overcome the complexity of transactional taxes in Europe and accelerate their cross-border B2C and D2C business.

eClear transforms the way you deal with VAT and Customs

While the EU is pushing ahead with VAT rates’ liberalisation, the correct determination, calculation, reporting, and waiving of VAT represent growing challenges for trading companies.

eClear’s solutions transform the handling of VAT and customs duties from the ground up. With certified tax content for millions of products and compliant VAT and customs clearing in all EU member states and beyond, eClear gives merchants secure access to the European Single Market.
