In order to serve customers from EU and provide digital goods at the rate specific for the country of the customer, certain information is required, which is automatically retrieved using a plugin. This plugin can:

  • Apply the correct VAT rate.
  • Ensure that VAT numbers used for B2B transactions are valid before applying VAT exemption.
  • Collect all the data required to prepare VAT returns.

This information is stored only until the purchase is finalized. The resulting data is anonymized and used to generate reports for tax purposes. No identifiable information for the customer is kept in the process.
