Hey Shahzad, 

I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify 🙂

Great questions! Setting up the taxes in your store can definitely be a bit of a challenge! In all cases, we recommend reaching out to a local tax expert so that they can answer questions specific to you and your business. Since tax regulations vary all over the world, for your first and second questions, reaching out to a tax expert would definitely be your best bet! 

As for your third question, I found this third party page that might help clear up what VAT is! Additionally, this page in our Shopify Manual will walk you through how to set up the VAT in your own store when you get all the details 🙂 

Finally, when you set up your store, you'll be in charge of setting up the tax rules for your customers. Then when your customers order something from your store, you'll be collecting those taxes, and it's up to you to remit them to your government when it comes time. 

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us on this thread 🙂 

Have a great one,

Ann | Social Care @ Shopify
