Never Stress About Sales Tax and VAT

Selling SaaS, software, or digital goods? We’ll collect your sales taxes — then remit those taxes on your behalf. Compliance worries? Tax returns in multiple jurisdictions? Not collecting taxes today and need to start? We’ll take care of everything.

We’ll Collect and Remit Taxes
on Your Behalf

FastSpring acts as the merchant of record for sales of SaaS, software, and digital goods on your website. That means we’re responsible for handling the sales tax. You control the checkout experience and branding. We process the payment, collect appropriate taxes, then remit those taxes on your behalf.

Instantly Become Tax Compliant

Tax rules are always changing. Do you know how Wayfair vs. South Dakota changed the rules in the U.S.? Are you current with all the different VAT regulations in the EU? Have you kept up with digital services tax updates in India? You can try to keep up with global tax changes on your own (or even with the help of a tax professional). 
Or you can trust FastSpring to keep you tax compliant worldwide — even as the rules change.
