How Taxdoo Works

Taxdoo

You simply register online with Taxdoo and connect your VAT channels or your ERP / WaWi system in just a few minutes. Taxdoo will automatically import all your data relevant to VAT and determine which EU countries you have been subject to VAT, since when you have been subject to VAT and for what reasons. If you want to register for value added tax abroad, Taxdoo will start the process of registering VAT in other EU countries and submit your VAT returns on a monthly or quarterly basis.

If you book for your personal free demo, an expert will guide you through the sales tax dashboard and discuss the status quo and the next steps.

Taxdoo software recognises your respective European VAT obligations in other EU countries and displays this information clearly in our customer dashboard. This includes, for example, the distance selling threshold, the checking of VAT IDs or the use of foreign warehouses.

Data Collection

Taxdoo uses interfaces to collect all necessary data (turnover, refunds and stock movements) fully automated and updated on a daily basis. This means you don’t need to conduct manual uploads. In addition, an automatic retrospective processing is also possible.

Evaluation and Monitoring

  • Plausibility. Automated plausibility checks for risk minimisation.
  • Distance selling thresholds. Taxdoo monitors on a daily basis whether distance selling thresholds to foreign countries are exceeded. Current exchange rates and differing tax rates are also taken into account.
  • Intrastat reporting thresholds. On a monthly basis, the Intrastat reporting thresholds per direction of goods and the resulting reporting obligations are monitored automatically.
  • Warehouse usage. Taxdoo automatically detects as soon as a foreign warehouse is first used in Amazon’s FBA program.
  • Dashboard. An overview of your tax obligations is conveniently located in your personal Taxdoo dashboard.

Filling in Other EU Countries

Taxdoo collaborates with local tax consultants throughout the EU to ensure reliable compliance with all local regulations, communicate with the respective tax authorities and manage all your VAT obligations throughout the EU such as:

  • Value added tax advance return
  • Value added tax annual return
  • Value added tax recapitulative statement
  • Other reports such as SAF-T in Poland

Taxdoo maps the entire data transmission in the required format in your country. For this purpose, a specially created software infrastructure is used.

Taxdoo provides you with an automated One-Stop-Shop (OSS) data export to allow cross-border B2C transactions to be easily reported via the OSS. In addition, Taxdoo supports you in submitting Intrastat declarations in many states of the EU.

Financial Accounting and Documentation

  • Use of data for financial accounting. The data processed by Taxdoo is structured in the dashboard according to countries, VAT rates and type of VAT liability. This enables you to make a simple transfer to financial accounting.
  • Pro-forma invoices. Taxdoo automatically creates pro-forma invoices for you.
  • Documentation. Taxdoo enables correct accounting and audit-proof documentation of all e-commerce transactions.
