Braintree powers billions of dollars in mobile and online payments for some of the world’s fastest growing companies and most reputable merchants, such as Uber, OpenTable, Airbnb and GitHub, among others.

The new 2015 EU VAT rules require merchants with B2C (business-to-customer) sales of digital goods and services in Europe, to identify where their end customer is located by collecting two pieces of non-conflicting evidence and then applying the correct VAT rate.

‘We are thrilled that Braintree selected Taxamo as their partner of choice for EU VAT compliance’, said John McCarthy CEO of Taxamo, ‘The changes to the EU VAT rules in 2015 on digital services will have a significant impact on Braintree’s merchant base, many of which are some of the most exciting new digital companies around.’

‘Consistent with Braintree’s dedication to our merchant’s success, the partnership with Taxamo will enable Braintree merchants to achieve EU VAT compliance in a simple way without having to develop their own solution.’
