New Feature: VAT For EU Countries



Update January 7, 2015:

We received a number of feedback asking the ability to just block sales from the whole EU or a certain country or group of countries, and we’ve listened and implemented this suggestion. More about this here.

A few months ago we released the original VAT feature that allows sellers to charge VAT to their customers.

Now, we’ve improved upon this VAT feature to comply with the new EU rules for 2015 — which states that the seller will need to charge the VAT rate of the country the customer is in.

Thank you for your suggestions over in our Feature Requests section.

To enable this feature, simply edit your product settings > [general settings] > [use VAT] > [yes] > [apply to European countries] > [yes] > [save changes]

Click the [?] tooltip and you’ll see the various VAT rates:

eu-vat-rate

Update

When this post was initially published, we forgot to inform you that you can view the VAT information gathered from your customers like the country they’re in, the amount of VAT charged, as well as other detailed info related to the transaction, on your Sales Report page >> find the transaction >> details (the document icon)

You can also export the data into excel, csv, or pdf by clicking one these icons at the top:

We hope you enjoy this new enhanced feature!

    Hi there Welly,

    Great improvement, you just made Zaxaa far more interesting for European customers! Please upgrade the receipts Zaxaa delivers to proper invoices (with address and VAT number, if applicable) and I’m on board. And I won’t be the only one : )

    Kind regards,
    Stefaan

    Thank you for this feature since I’m in EU.

    Here is a question: let’s assume that I have a product with 100% affiliate commisions.
    What happens and how is it calculated due to new tax rules?

    When my affiliate sales a product with 100% commission, am I obligated to pay the tax from my pocket, or is it deducted from the amount, and I don’t even see the money or an invoice?

    Thanks

      Good question. I reckon if you give 100% comms you will be out of pocket for the VAT – but remember that is only for EU sales. Hopefully, Zaxaa will set the option to turn off your home country…something vital for UK based businesses.

      Also, to collate the information that the vendor needs is vital. I see that JVZoo have gone much further with this. Hopefully Zaxaa will catch on and catch up

        Hi Barry

        The information collected for tax purposes can be found inside your transaction details on the Sales Report page (https://www.zaxaa.com/report/sales) >> find the said transaction >> details. You can also export the data to csv, excel, and pdf.

        By the way, we’ve also released the ability to block sales from certain countries that you specify. More info here:
