Is Shopify Double Charging VAT on their Payments?

19 0 3

I'm based in Ireland and from what I can see, Shopify appears to be double charging VAT on their payment transactions  - has anyone else noticed this?


My fees are shown as the following:

1.9% +.25c + VAT on every transaction.


Then on the monthly statement, VAT of 23% is applied AGAIN to each of the above fees.


Has anyone else spotted this and raised it? There's no basis for charging VAT again in my opinion.


Also I've noticed that the monthly statements don't breakdown what transactions are included so it's very difficult to verify they are correct.


Really poor transparency from Shopify.
