How can I adjust the VAT rate for my Norwegian webshop?

2 0 0


We have a webshop in Norway. The webshop is set up to collect Norwegian VAT in Settings > Taxes > Tax region > Norway. Shopify is with this setup automatically collecting 25% VAT, which is the standard VAT rate in Norway.

The problem is that for the type of product that this webshop is selling, the VAT rate should only be 15%, not 25%. I can not find any option to change the VAT rate in Shopify. Any pointers?

Hi @Furnesdesign,

Nick here from Shopify. 

I just want to make sure I completely understand what you're saying! The VAT in Norway is 25% and you assigned that to your store and is set up ok. But there is one particular product where the VAT is actually 15% and not 25% and you want to change the VAT to 15% for that one product only in your store? 

If that is the case, can you shed some more light on why that one product has a 15% VAT and not 25%. A tax override will allow you to remove a tax, but not change it for one product, and you can manage your tax calculations but I don't believe it's possible to change the VAT for one product only. Let me know if that is indeed the case and we can take it from there!
