Automated Taxes for EU, CA & US

We are thrilled to announce, that Billia will now support automated cross-border taxation.


What does this mean?

From day one, the best Billing & Automation engine for hosters in Europe supports automated VAT calculation for companies & individuals. This includes a full location-based calculation of the buyer's VAT. Including historical data for VAT percentage change back in the history.


{
    "name": "German VAT",
    "generic_label": "vat",
    "display_inclusive": true,
    "zone": "de_vat",
    "tag": "EU",
    "rates": [
        {
            "id": "de_vat_standard",
            "name": "Standard",
            "default": true,
            "amounts": [
                {
                    "id": "de_vat_standard_2007",
                    "amount": 0.19,
                    "start_date": "2007-01-01",
                    "end_date": "2020-06-30"
                },
                {
                    "id": "de_vat_standard_2020",
                    "amount": 0.16,
                    "start_date": "2020-07-01",
                    "end_date": "2020-12-31"
                },
                {
                    "id": "de_vat_standard_2021",
                    "amount": 0.19,
                    "start_date": "2021-01-01"
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}


Today we are announcing support for Canada & United States.

Unlike Europe, Canada & US are using GST consumption taxes. The only differences between VAT & GST taxes derive from the specific rules that each country applies to the taxes themselves such as tax rates, items exempt from tax and the requirements of registration.



Canada Example:

{
    "name": "Canada - Alberta",
    "generic_label": "GST",
    "zone": "ca_ab",
    "tag": "CA",
    "rates": [
        {
            "id": "ca_ab_gst_standard",
            "name": "Standard",
            "default": true,
            "amounts": [
                {
                    "id": "ca_ab_gst_standard_2013",
                    "amount": 0.05,
                    "start_date": "2013-04-01"
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}

Also in US intangible products are not taxable, but not in all states. Unfortunately, the US taxation system is too complicated to be handled on a 100% with more than 13000 rules. Because of that, we are specialising our system for selling intangible products with automated sales tax applying.





United States - California Example:

{
    "name": "United States - California",
    "generic_label": "GST",
    "zone": "us_ca",
    "tag": "US",
    "rates": [
        {
            "id": "us_ca_gst_standard",
            "name": "Standard",
            "default": true,
            "amounts": [
                {
                    "id": "us_ca_gst_standard_2013",
                    "amount": 0.0854,
                    "start_date": "2014-02-01"
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}

With all these improvements and full multicurrency support for financial documents, that is coming in the next major version of the software, Billia becomes the true global hosting company solution on the market.


We can not wait to unlock you the ability to sell globally services with the click of a button.
