Now, users are able to add a tax exemption ID to quotes created within the FastSpring App and from the Quotes API. This change applies to all supported countries where FastSpring collects taxes.

Updated Zip Code Requirements for North America

In the USA and Canada, users will now be required to input zip or postal codes respectively. This allows us to more accurately validate tax exemption numbers at the time of quote creation. This change applies to both user generated quotes as well as quotes generated by end-customers of FastSpring users.

Expanded Support for Tax Exemption in Orders from Japan

Users making sales in Japan can now input a JCT tax ID for B2B transactions and receive a 0% rate and report the tax directly under reverse change accounting.
