Vertex has acquired Taxamo, a provider of cloud-based tax and payment automation solutions for global e-commerce and marketplaces.
Taxamo, headquartered in Ireland, counts many of the leading, high-growth digital service providers among its global customers who rely on its unified platform of integrated capabilities to support indirect tax compliance, with a core focus on online sales, payments, and e-invoicing.
“The fabric of today’s global commerce is more connected and complex than ever before,” said Vertex CEO David DeStefano. “Our mission is to enable every business to transact, comply and grow with confidence. We are incredibly excited to bring these new end-to-end solutions to our customers and partners around the world.”
Taxamo’s cloud-based solutions are purpose-built for today’s global, e-commerce businesses that need to automate compliance and commerce across the entire value chain of cross-border transactions from merchant to seller to payer and revenue authority. Taxamo delivers comprehensive end-to-end solutions for VAT and GST management - from registration to calculation, compliance, invoicing and payment – all on one platform.
“This acquisition supports and accelerates our growth strategies across e-commerce platforms and marketplaces in the enterprise and mid-market in Europe and North America, and among our existing global customers,” added DeStefano. “We also believe the addition of Taxamo opens up entirely new market opportunities as global marketplaces continue to expand, and tax complexity grows across the interconnected supply chain of logistics, shipping, customs and payment platforms.
