Subtract tax from the total price of the order at checkout

Hi, I'm starting to work with shopify and I'm encountering this problem in the store that I am handling the prices of the products already include the VAT. But there are 2 cities to which no VAT is charged. I want to know if it is possible that when the user selects one of these cities the VAT can be subtracted from the total that the checkout shows and how it should be programmed. Thank you.

UK seller- Confusion about tax on items?

Hi,   I signed up for shopify a couple of days ago, it seems relatively straight forward to someone who doesn't understand coding, but I've ran into some confusion. I will be dropshipping, I have found some suppliers. I have only managed to list one product before I've ran into problems, firstly I am confused by the taxes. I presumed dropshipping was as simple as selling on Ebay. In...

Bookkeeping - Xero - Cost to High?

I’ve recently had my books done using Xero and the Shopify Xero App. There were around 1200 orders and this has cost £1100 to import and reconcile. The majority of orders are in the £20-40 price range meaning around 4% of every sale has to go to recording the sale, which seems madness.  Is there another way to do this? I only really want Xero for filing tax returns and end of year accounts. ...

Hi,   Here's a brain twister for you. Concerns: I don't want my customers to receive the product and then find out they were supposed to pay tax. I also don't want my customers to pay tax at my store's checkout if they didn't need to pay any tax.   Background: My Shopify (clothing) store is 100% online as I don't handle any inventory and don't have an office. My store is not regi...

How to remove domestic VAT from products, when client is located abroad?...

Hi everyone, Prices of my products are shown on my store inclusive of Swiss taxes (my business and main clientele are based in Switzerland and everyone appreciates seeing the final price straight away, without hidden taxes that come up at checkout). I therefore selected "All taxes are included in my prices" and updated 7.7% of VAT for Switzerland. And this is fine. Now, I am shipping a...

Canadian startup. Can anyone recommend a good accountant?

I'm starting a shopify store, and I thought I had a good handle on things.  I've gotten the necessary permits and familiarized myself with GST remittance requirements.  The Canadian PST/HST situation was causing me some stress, but I figured I'd just start off selling in the US.  Last I read, as long as I didn't have a nexus in any state or sell over $X, I didn't have much to worry about. To...

I'm a little confused about taxes right now.

Hi everyone,    So I'm creating a dropshipping store in Belgium, and now I was wondering.  If I sell to the US, where I would like to try out and then conquer the world (obviously). What about taxes, do I have to charge taxes and pay them to the US? Since I have no warehouse, no staff, no office in any of the states, I just sell to them..  I found information saying that when you ha...

Shopify Payout times = accounting nightmare

Is anyone else experiencing accounting difficulties based on the fact that Shopify reports show sales based on the date according to your time zone, but Shopify Pay determines payouts based on UTC time zone? I'm not talking about the days in between sales and deposit. I'm talking about the actual cutoff times. For example, let's say that Shopify sales for a business day shows that $2000 tota...

New Online Tax Laws - a Deal Breaker?

I have purchased extended licences for my artwork, created and updated product, and have my Shopify site ready to go. I then did my tax research and have been learning about the recent update to online taxes. This seems like a deal breaker to me. How am I supposed to tracking state taxes for every state? Am I missing something? Do I only need to worry about this if my sales are over a certain n...

The standard tax report for Shopify reports incorrectly. Refunds are linked back to the original order and not treated as a separate transaction at the date when they were created. To illustrate... A customer purchases a product in...

Shopify Payouts: challenges in reconciliation

We use Shopify and SAP Business One for our ERP. Right now the way payouts are delivered is quite a cumbersome and manual process for our accounting team. I was curious if anyone uses an app or an integration to reconcile payouts in their ERP. Or what process you use in general. Any information is appreciated.

Sales Tax Details for Paid and Shipped Orders

Hi all If I run the Sales Tax report under Finance, I get the sales tax detail of all orders for the needed timeframe. This is incorrect and it should only show you how much actual tax has been collected. Is there a way to create a report to show tax detail on only paid / or fulfilled orders?   Thanks PD
