We need an INVOICE ( Not a report ) for the fees you and STRIPE charge on payments. If i use stripe independently as we do , they provide a charges invoice. We need an invoice for all the money you take via STRIPE. Paypal provide invoice for charges why don't you? The UK tax office will not accept a spreadsheet with the charges as that is not a deductable invoice. Another persons question was not answered even though they were very clear with their posting the below in italics.


Please can we have an acceptable answer and solution for those of us that require an invoice for the money you have taken. 


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.
