This not solved.  HMRC will not accept a spreadsheet just showing the fees taken from each transaction, which is the spreadsheet you get when you download from the Payment screen.

Shopify supply a service by charging a fee to use Shopify Payments, it is for example 2.2% + 0.20p per order.

HMRC requires the following on an invoice for supplying a service.

Your invoice must include:

  • a unique identification number
  • your company name, address and contact information
  • the company name and address of the customer you’re invoicing
  • a clear description of what you’re charging for
  • the date the goods or service were provided (supply date)
  • the date of the invoice
  • the amount(s) being charged
  • VAT amount if applicable
  • the total amount owed

Shopify use Stripe to process Shopify Payments and we also use Stripe for other websites and we receive a monthly invoice from Stripe which show these charges.

Shopify are in the wrong in not producing an invoice for a service they provide and HMRC will catch up with them.

Import your orders into your accounting software, for example Quickbooks
online as a sales receipt, then you'll have the document you need. Deb

I believe you will find the VAT invoice as a pdf document here under "Documents" :-)
