Yes. EU VAT is supported in ChargeBee.
For more details, refer our documentation here: http://www.chargebee.com/docs/tax.html
Currently the linked page has information that is going to be changed 1st Jan 2015.
"If the purchase is a merchant to person transaction, irrelevant of where the buyer is from within EU, then the tax applicable is based on the merchant’s country. "
will change so that the tax is based on buyer's country.
Will ChargeBee support this and will the support be available in Jan 2015?
(Background info about the change: http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/taxation/vat/traders/e-commerce/index_en.htm This does not apply to all sales, but probably to big part of ChargeBee's clients selling subscription based services.)
With the upcoming VATMOSS regulation changes on January 1, 2015, a bunch of VAT regulations are changing in the EU.
VAT needs to be applied based on the location of consumer than the seller.
Along with this there are a few other changes like storing of evidences of billing address, IP of buyer.
We are working on the changes and will be ready to make a smooth transition & have our customers ready for 1-Jan-2015.
The corresponding help documents will also be modified as we roll out the feature soon.
