Prepare VAT for all European wide sales centrally in Germany via OSS

  • Collect transaction data from sales on various marketplaces
  • Prepare OSS data to report sales transactions by EU-country
  • Report total sales for all European markets via OSS


Business challenge

OSS is a system that simplifies and streamlines the process of collecting and remitting taxes for businesses that operate in multiple countries. It enables businesses to register for VAT (Value Added Tax) in one EU country and then use that registration to report and pay VAT in other EU countries where they have sales.

Just like how an e-commerce platform simplifies the process of selling products online by providing a single platform to manage sales, payments, and shipping, OSS simplifies the process of collecting and remitting taxes for businesses operating in multiple countries.

In the same way that an e-commerce platform provides a centralized dashboard to manage sales across different channels, OSS provides a centralized platform for businesses to manage VAT across different EU countries. This platform enables businesses to file a single VAT return and make a single payment for all their sales in the EU, rather than having to file multiple VAT returns and make multiple payments in each country where they have sales.
