Hi there @Alexapt!

 

You can refer to the requirements for use Shopify Payments in Czechia here

 

If your business is a sole proprietorship you're automatically set up to accept all major payment types via your Shopify Payments account. 

 

Are you being asked to submit business registration documentation specifically, or are you just being asked to enter your business name when setting up Shopify Payments?

And btw, could you please tell me how it is with the Vat number here in czechia?

Do I have to make on right now, or can I make it once I will start receiving some money?

Or could I just use the shopify thing if I dont have the Vat number?

And how its with the collecting taxes in other states please?

Do I have to manage it to every country I wanna sell too?

@Don 

Thanks

Hi again @Alexapt!

 

We're not able to provide information from here in Shopify on your legal or taxation requirements where you are.

 

As such you will need to consult a qualified expert in your jurisdiction so that you understand any legal or tax obligations you need to observe.

 

When you know what taxes you need to charge and for where, you can set that up using the tax settings in your Shopify admin.

3 Which countries do you sell to? 

 

Based on that information I can give answers on what you need to sell to specific regions/countries

Hi Alexapt,

Ba sed on your replies. 

1. You may go without Czech VAT registration until your annual turnover goes over 1 000 000 CZK (turnover in the last 12 months) 

2. If you want to sell to EU (including Czech republic) with direct  fulfillment from China you need IOSS registration  (not mandatory , but very advisable) . For sales to the UK you need to have UK VAT registration to participate in the UK LVC scheme (it is very similar to the EU IOSS). WE can help you with IOSS/UK VAT , visit us at www. easproject.com. You may want to register for Norwegian VAT  , but it is not mandatory and due to the market size - it is a bit of too much fuss with not much results. US has a very high import threshold (800 USD)  and the state threshold (they do vary) are around 100 000 USD for the sales to a particular state so you do not really need to register for US sales taxes. Canada is complicated and I do not advise to get registered there , you would pay more for compliance than get  revenue.

HI Alexapt, Just go and register at  https://easproject.com/ . You will receive IOSS and UK VAT numbers for free. In 2-3 days you can start using IOSS  , UK VAT registration takes a bit longer.  

We have monthly fees starting as low as 9.9 EUR, you can find all fees on the site. 

Yours
