# Taxes

Spark may be configured to calculate and apply European Union VAT tax to subscriptions.

To get started, you should uncomment the Features::euVatCollection() line within your application's config/spark.php configuration file. The value provided for the home-country option should be the two-character country code corresponding to the country where your business is located:

use Spark\Features;

'features' => [
    Features::euVatCollection(['home-country' => 'BE']),

Once you have completed these steps, Spark will automatically gather customer billing address information as well as VAT Number and apply the correct VAT based on the customer's location.
