How to remove 'including taxes' from checkout on my ecommerce site?

Hi folks.
I’m currently building my site but when going through I noticed at the checkout page that is says ‘including taxes’ which can give the impression I’m charging/costing VAT into the product.

I have a limited company where I am not VAT registered so I don’t want it to show that it’s including VAT as it gives a false impression (I believe it makes it look illegal)
Does anybody know how to remedy this
Maybe I’m reading too deep

Hi @Kayoed,


If you're not charging any taxes for products sold on your store and want the language used on your storefront to reflect this, then you can make changes through your theme's language editor. This editor allows you to change different phrases and texts throughout your online store, and can be accessed by heading to Online store > Themes in the Shopify admin before then choosing "Edit languages" from your theme's "Actions" drop-down menu.


Once you're in the editor, you can search for a phrase or keyword (e.g. "tax" or "taxes") to see where this text appears across your store:




We can see in the above screenshot that the word "taxes" appears in various places, including my product pages, cart page and checkout. I can then edit this text or delete it altogether in the various areas that I see fit.


Before doing this, I would recommend making a duplicate version of the theme file you're using incase you make changes that you don't want; this'll then give you the option of reverting back to your backup version if you need to. Once you've made changes to your theme's language, you can save your changes and view a preview of the theme file to see how these changes are reflected on the storefront.
