A VAT database
for your entire product portfolio

Precisely classify your entire product portfolio in the specific VAT logic of each country of delivery. Available for all EU-27 and Northern Ireland.

Calculate correctly

With VATRules, you access a database of certified VAT rates on-demand – directly in your system environment! Your product prices thus automatically consider the VAT rates currently applicable in the EU-27 and Northern Ireland.

VAT compliance with VATRules

All standard rates, reductions, and temporary adjustments

eClear’s VATRules database includes not only the standard VAT rates, but also all country-specific reductions, exemptions and temporary adjustments.

VATRules is the basis for the preparation of correct VAT returns. Because by automated updates, your product prices always consider the tax rate required depending on the country of delivery.

Tax compliance and competition

Reduce risk, secure margin

Many merchants set the same product price when selling to other EU countries to simplify their processes. However, in addition to the liability risks, they often underestimate the margin losses that can occur if local VAT regulations are not considered or their sources are outdated.
