Registration-based tax settings

Registration-based taxes are available for certain regions only. This guide applies to you if your store is based in one of the following regions:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • European Union
  • United Kingdom
  • Norway
  • Switzerland
  • Australia
  • New Zealand

Unlike location-based taxes, registration-based taxes require you to input a tax registration number to calculate your taxes. You can get this number from your local tax authority.

You can use Shopify to automate charging taxes, but you can't use Shopify to remit or file your taxes for you. After you review the regions where you sell your products and determine where you're responsible for charging taxes, then you can follow this guide to make sure that you've configured your Shopify store to charge the correct rates.
