One big difference between Apple Store and Google Play when selling apps

One new thing learned lately and one more thing why I like Apple Store more than Google Play when selling apps.

Apple Store

Apple act as an agent. You supply your products to Apple who then market and supply them to consumers. Apple takes cares of the VAT & other taxes and for accounting purposes I just need to create one invoice every month.

Google Play

Each transaction in the market takes place between the end user and the app developer, addresses are exchanged, and the responsibility for any local taxes applicable to each sale lies with the developer. So more paperwork & excel spreadsheets needed! And I hate paperworks :)
