European VAT law requires you to keep two pieces of evidence to prove the location of your customers. Easy Digital Downloads takes care of this by storing the customer’s country and IP address.

You must also keep the tax invoice of each customer for up to ten years. The EU VAT plugin deals with this by converting the payment details pages into complete tax invoices. Alternatively, you can use the PDF invoice plugin.
