Plugins for SAP Commerce

SAP + eClear

Whether it’s our database that provides valid VAT rates at your shop’s point of sale for European countries or our full-service clearing that takes over your cross-border VAT obligations; eClear’s software services integrate natively with existing SAP business processes.

European E-Commerce

Accelerate your cross-border B2C and B2C business

When selling products in European countries, businesses are legally obliged to collect the Value Added Tax (VAT) from the consumer (B2C) according to the country of delivery (Destination Principle). The variation of VAT rates combined with multiple regional exceptions and temporary adjustments within the EU causes significant challenges to implementing the requirements.

With eClear’s automation solutions, merchants overcome the complexity of transactional taxes in Europe and accelerate their cross-border B2C and D2C business.

eClear 1.0

Much more than a VAT database

Classify your entire product range in the specific VAT logic of each EU member state.
Certified, system-integrated and always up-to-date.

Connect to eClear’s certified tax content

Every standard rate, every reduction, every exception

eClear 1.0 connects you to our VATRules database. It integrates into the SAP pricing determination with direct access out of the SAP SD module (Sales & Distribution).

eClear’s database provides valid VAT rates at point of offer and order creation in SAP.

Is the sale of goods taxable or tax-free? Which tax rate is applicable? — Regular, reduced or super-reduced? Which exemptions and re-exemptions are in effect?

With eClearID, products and VAT rates are clearly assigned and matched to each other. A one-time effort that ensures an accurate mapping of VAT rates along with product and regional EU tax rates: Once assigned – always up to date!
