Quaderno Demo: How to automate your digital taxes


Hi there! In this demo I’ll explain why Quaderno is the easiest way to solve your tax compliance and invoicing needs First I’ll explain a bit about tax laws and how Quaderno helps you comply with taxes all over the world Then I´ll go into how the application automates everything regarding tax receipts Afterwards I’ll talk about tax reports and how the app can give you all the numbers you need to file your taxes in no-time Last I’ll explain how you can get started It’s an easy set-up process In most cases, you’ll be done in less than 10 minutes! But first, international taxes If you sell products or services you have to comply with the local tax laws wherever you sell This gets complicated pretty fast Most countries and regions expect your business to charge every customer at the local tax rate Some expect you to register with their local tax system Some, like the EU only want you to charge private citizens but not local businesses Some, like Australia have an annual sales threshold which means you only charge tax if your sales pass a certain total Note that these are *laws* so you have to comply with them But how can you keep up with so many variations of laws, in every country where you have customers? You could do it yourself but then you’d have a new full-time job and my guess is that you prefer to spend time on your actual business To know which tax to apply you have to determine a buyer’s location Legally speaking you need two pieces of matching information that confirm where they are Quaderno automatically collects this information for you verifies the customer’s location and then applies the right tax rate to the transaction The app can handle any tax be it sales tax in the US or GST in Canada or anywhere else in the world We also alert you when you need to start collecting tax in a certain country so your business is always on the ball For example if you pass a tax threshold in Australia you’ll get a notification Or if a new country introduces a brand new digital tax we’ll let you know Then you can configure it in Quaderno in just a few seconds So this concludes the tax part now let’s take a look at the tax receipts Your customers have probably asked for these on occasion How do you create those documents now? With Quaderno you can completely automate this The app generates tax receipts every time you make a sale And if you want these receipts can be emailed to your customers automatically Customers can update the information on receipts themselves as well as access their payment history and download past documents This self-service aspect eliminates any unnecessary back and forth with your customer support team saving everyone time and hassle All receipts will have the look & feel of your business You can easily customize receipts to include your company’s logo and color scheme They can even be issued in your customer’s language! And what happens if you refund a customer? If you issue a refund, the app will automatically issue a credit note This way your revenue and other financial data are always up to date Now you’ve seen how Quaderno can apply the right tax rate on transactions and handle the receipts But what happens when it’s time to file your taxes? Do you always dread this moment? You might have data in different systems and platforms and spreadsheets, and then you have to pull it all together to calculate all the taxes you have to pay Quaderno enables you to fill out your tax returns in minutes, not hours You’ll have all the information you need right at your fingertips All you have to do is select the report you need and you´ll see exactly how many taxes you withheld for each country and region Just copy this information to your tax form and you’re DONE!
