I need a help, im setting up my store and i noticed that tax calculation is wrong at checkout and in the invoice after payment example: the tax rate supposed to be 15 % but when i added an item thats price as 100 it calculated the tax as 13.25 which was supposed to be 15.
i have attached screen shots, i tried checking tax setting as: All prices include tax. and also i tried both All prices include tax and Include or exclude tax based on your customer's country
but unfortunately all with the same issue, i dont know if i am doing something wrong
I'm Miles from the Social Care team at Shopify. Whilst I won't be able to provide information on what tax amount is correct, I can certainly guide you around setting up the tax information.
Setting up taxes is based on tax registrations for the following regions:
If you’re not based in one of these regions and you need to charge taxes, then taxes are applied at the country or regional level, depending on your local tax laws.
Follow the links in the steps below for more detailed information:
If something isn't calculating correctly after following these steps, then you would need to speak to a local tax professional to ensure everything has been set up correctly.
Great posting was very useful. One question I ask is how do we settle these taxes with the relevant authorities and can I choose only to deliver to certain countries to start with?
Thanks for your question. Each year you'll be required to lodge your tax with the relevant authorities. This is not something we would assist with, so questions about how to lodge this would need to be directed to your local tax authority. To make it easier, you'll be able to access reporting on the tax you've charged by heading to Analytics > Reports and navigating to the tax reports.
In regards to who you ship to, that is entirely up to you. It's your business so you set the rules on where you ship to. Once you've set up your shipping settings, you'll then be able to navigate to Settings > Taxes to set up your tax as outlined in my post above.
If you have any questions about this, please let me know.
