Last week, Barn2 released the brand new EU VAT plugin for Easy Digital Downloads into the wild. It allows your EDD online store to meet the complicated European VAT law and solves your EU VAT headaches with ease.
Easy Digital Downloads EU VAT
No matter where you are based, when selling digital products to customers in the EU, your Easy Digital Downloads store must comply with EU VAT regulations.
- Charges correct VAT on sales to each EU country
- VAT number validation and storage
- VAT removal and reverse-charge of VAT on B2B sales
- Store multiple customer location evidence
- Collects and displays both postal and IP addresses
- Check and export customer location evidence, e.g. for tax audits
- Adds EU tax data to EDD payment confirmations
- Support for emails, PDF invoices, and EDD payments such as Recurring Payments, PayPal, and Stripe
- Export instant reports for MOSS tax return
- Dynamic VAT Number field: Hide the VAT field for non-EU countries
- New EC Sales List report: Generate lists of your sales to VAT-registered businesses in the EU
- New hooks for developers to customize the plugin
Due to customer feedback Barn2 added a new feature in version 1.1 that allows you to hide the VAT field for customers from outside of the EU. This definitely helps to increase your conversion rates. The shorter your checkout is, the less likely users are to abandon their shopping carts.
Barn2 also integrated their European VAT plugin with the official EDD PDF Invoices extension, allowing you to use these as full EU tax invoices.
