Not everyone is a Stripe accountant!

Stripe in short

Stripe  is a payment services infrastructure for e-commerce businesses.

Their expertise is based on the creation of tools aimed at facilitating and increasing the number of successful transactions.

To do this they use their enormous database and make it available to your company's ecosystem ( QuickbooksQontoPennylane ...) .

Stripe  offers its customers a bundle of banking services and relevant, personalized advice for your business to optimize the levers impacting your profitability.

Advanced management tools

Stripe is a bit like an API factory, one more efficient than the other. Stripe covers a wide spectrum of services that are much more efficient than those offered by online and traditional banks.


This part of the application is essential to understand all the possibilities that this tool offers to managers and businesses. Each functionality is accessible by the company and can be implemented in its application or website by integrating the API.


Stripe is the fastest way to manage online payments, recurring or one-off, in any currency and part of the world. The app also supports many additional features (coupons, free trials, prorations, overages, etc.)


Setting up subscriptions is ultra simple and fully integrated. Card, transfer, multiple currencies... your income is automatically collected in your Stripe account and the invoice is sent directly to your customer. No loss of time or business due to late payments.


Request payment of your funds from your Stripe wallet to your bank. Payout is a service that can be configured so that it is carried out monthly, weekly or at will, by click.

Account for Stripe payment flows

Counting Stripe flows and matching figures is a great challenge. Indeed, Stripe counts the transactions that are recorded in your Stripe account by automatically deducting management fees.

Let's take an example:

You invoice your customer for a service for an amount including tax of €100. Stripe applies its commission of 2.5% + €0.25, which leaves a net sum of €97.25 including tax.

However, this is where it gets complicated. In France, the amount excluding tax is calculated on the amount including tax before commission of Stripe. So if you request a Payout, it will be €97.25 including tax and €81.12 excluding tax, while on the invoices the amount excluding tax will be €83.33.

As a result, the invoices issued do not match either the amounts present in  Stripe  nor with the payments present in your bank. Not to mention that your VAT returns are no longer obvious either.‍
