Friday, June 21, 2024

The Byte Channel, a leading provider of e-commerce solutions, has today announced a strategic partnership with Arxanum, a German company specialising in EU VAT compliance services. Under this agreement, The Byte Channel will act as an agent to supply Arxanum's VAST (VAT Assurance Services Technology) offerings to businesses in Australia, New Zealand, and the broader Australasian region.

The services offered through this partnership include:

  • - IOSS (Import One-Stop Shop): Simplifies VAT reporting for distance sales of goods imported into the EU worth less than €150.
  • - OSS (One-Stop Shop): Allows businesses to report and pay VAT on all distance sales of goods and services to EU consumers through a single return.
  • - Fiscal Representation: Provides a local fiscal representative to handle VAT registrations, filings, and interactions with EU tax authorities on behalf of non-EU businesses.

"Through our partnership with Arxanum, we can now offer best-in-class VAT compliance solutions to simplify selling into the EU market."
