Estimated read time: 1 minute, 24 seconds

When you sell around the world, there are more opportunities for growth.

But there’s also more complexity.

One big complication is sales tax, GST, and VAT: consumption taxes you’re expected to charge your customer and remit on their behalf.

So what are your options when it comes to tax collection and compliance?

In a one-hour webinar, we covered the four main ways that SaaS companies handle global sales taxes.

We also covered:

  • What happens when SaaS companies don’t properly comply with tax regulations.
  • The growing list of countries that have changed their rules around VAT and sales taxes for software sales in recent years.
  • How tax liabilities vary for B2B and B2C purchases in different areas of the world.
  • Who is liable for the sales tax when resellers are involved.
