Hey @mohitkhatwani,

 

VAT is typically charged in the European Union (EU) countries and is not applicable in the USA, Canada, or UAE. However, certain goods or services in Canada may be subject to Goods and Services Tax (GST) or Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). Ensure you comply with the respective tax regulations in each country.

 

It would be advisable to consult with a tax professional or an accounting firm that specializes in international tax matters. They can guide you on the tax implications of selling in different countries and help you comply with the relevant tax laws and regulations. They will also help you understand the tax treaties, thresholds, and other compliance requirements. Be sure to discuss your specific situation, such as being based in India while selling in other countries.

 

Additionally, Shopify integrates with various tax automation apps and services that offer tax calculation, filing, and remittance solutions. These third-party services can manage tax calculations for multiple countries and handle compliance on your behalf. Explore the app store to find tax-related applications that fit your requirements.

 

Remember that tax laws can be complex and subject to change, so it's crucial to consult with experts and stay up-to-date with the latest regulations to ensure your business remains compliant.
