Otta's take on Fonoa

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

It's never been simpler to set up a business online. Tools like Stripe, Intercom, and Twilio have enabled entrepreneurs to sell to millions of consumers and businesses across borders. But managing tax compliance remains a minefield that gets even more intense as companies grow and scale internationally. Fonoa removes the challenge of managing indirect taxes from the everyday business of digital-native companies, with a suite of plug-and-play products that make up its global tax compliance platform.

The company achieves this by easily integrating APIs into customer data to eradicate manual tax processes. Fonoa has grown and expanded its product suite heavily since launching in late 2018 with customers including, Spotify, Teachable, Uber, and Zoom relying on the platform to enable it to remain tax-compliant and reduce operating costs.

Fonoa's 2022 Series B funding allows the company to further its expansion plans, which includes becoming a fully international player offering services on a global scale. Fonoa is focusing on a full tax stack approach for growth, prioritising technology to suit the digital business models of today. Through this, the company is well-poised to tackle an almost unending market that has catapulted startups like Stripe to Unicorn status.

Total funding - $85m
