VAT/GST compliance for marketplaces

Online marketplace operators selling into Europe face a complex challenge of VAT/GST liability, tax calculation, and currency conversion according to the latest marketplace facilitator rules in every country. Making sure the correct VAT/GST is charged on every invoice, and the VAT amount is remitted to the proper jurisdictions each month adds steps to the marketplace operation.

Vertex for Marketplaces integrates with your e-commerce or marketplace platform to automate invoicing and tax, keeping you current on the latest country and local rates and rules, and streamlining the seller and customer journey so you can focus on accelerating growth.
