How to sell into the US and stay tax compliant
Don't be caught out by new US sales tax obligations
The current challenging economic climate is having a tumultuous impact on ecommerce sales globally. According to Statisa, the end of March saw the highest year-on-year growth in ecommerce orders for several European countries, with the UK, Italy and Germany, all up 50% on the previous year.
For European ecommerce merchants selling into the United States, this jump in transactions means they could be triggering new sales tax obligations or “nexus”. Given the number and complexity of sales tax jurisdictions in the US, it can be challenging for businesses to assess whether they are liable for sales tax and where.
Whether you are just starting out in the US, already active in a few states, looking to calculate or retroactively report any back taxes, this webinar is designed for you.
