For us, working with eClear is an essential step towards automating our processes. It allows us to scale our business further and serve our customers across Europe, tax compliant.
Original Räder is one of Germany’s leading suppliers in the field of rims and complete wheels. The company was founded in 2007 and went online with its online shop original-räder.de in 2016. Customers come from Germany, Austria, Denmark, France, and Italy. Demand from Eastern European countries is also increasing.
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. Thus, the company relies on eClear’s products VATRules and ThresholdControl to optimise the online shop in tax compliance continuously.
With eClear, we have gained a strategic partner who can offer customers a unique solution for compliant taxation in cross-border e-ecommerce.
plentymarkets is an e-commerce ERP system. It combines merchandise management with a shop system and omnichannel sales, including a POS system. With the online-based software, the entire online and offline trade can be fully automated. ClearVAT is core-integrated into plentymarkets and available to more than 8,000 retailers.
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 were 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.
