VATRules: The much-more-than-just-VAT database

With VATRules, merchants can access a database of certified tax rates for all EU-27 countries (plus CH, UK and NO) on-demand – directly in their plentymarkets backend! The product prices thus automatically take into account the nationally applicable VAT rates.

ThresholdControl: Monitor cross-border business development

The threshold monitor keeps track of when the net turnover from sales to other EU countries would require registration for VAT purposes in the country of destination.

Since July 2021, the thresholds currently still applicable to EU countries were replaced by a uniform threshold of EUR 10,000.

It is very time-consuming to almost impossible to keep track of all the different constantly changing tax and customs requirements. Thanks to eClear, we can optimise our processes easily and automatically.

The Adelheid brand from Trier, Germany, has been delighting international customers with its felt products since 2004. For the 6-member team of to-stock GmbH, which has been distributing the brand since 2017, internationalisation also means a challenge.

Background

Challenges of the
European Single Market

Varying VAT rates, required registrations and liability risks abroad. Anyone who sells products across borders in the EU knows the challenges of the European single market. In addition, relevant changes that need to be observed in e-commerce came into force since July 2021.

Thus, the different supply thresholds are replaced by a uniform threshold of EUR 10,000. If cross-border trade reaches EUR 10,000, the registration and reporting obligations in the countries of destination apply.
