VAT and myshop.com#

If you set up a shop, you will have to follow the rules about VAT of the tax authorities. Below we will explain the different types of VAT which you will encounter and which possibilities myshop.com will offer.

When do you have to pay VAT?
When you are an entrepreneur it depends on two factors if you have to pay VAT, what type of customer you are dealing with and what is the destination of your delivery:

  • private persons and entrepreneurs outside the European Union
    The VAT for deliveries to customers (private persons and entrepreneurs) outside the European Union is 0%
    [more info].
  • entrepreneurs inside the European Union
    The VAT for deliveries to entrepreneurs inside the European Union (with VAT number) is 0% too. The entrepreneur in the other European Union country has to pay the VAT.
  • private persons inside the European Union
    The VAT for deliveries to private persons inside the European Union depends on the country from where the products are send, for example, in the Netherlands the VAT will be 0%, 6% of 19%, it depends of the product. [more info].

VAT and myshop.com
The first time you will deal with the VAT is when you upload your product list. At step 2, product number and price, you have to fill in the amount of the VAT (you can change this at a later moment). When you have uploaded your product list, there are the following options to set up the VAT:

  • Amount of VAT
    – log in via$domain$
    – right above you will see the tab of product list, click on it
    – then you will see right above the option settings/layout, there you will find your product list. Click on edit/view
    – go to price/supply, you have 2 options, click on the upper one. Here you can edit the amount of the VAT, the percentage will apply for all products
  • Different amounts of VAT within product list
    – see above. Below the option of amount of VAT you have the option to select ´VAT field´. To do so, you have to add on your product list a column with for example the name VAT, and with each product the amount of VAT. If you select at the field of VAT for VAT, you will see the VAT percentage which you have filled in at the column.
  • Prices including or exclusively VAT
    – log in via$domain$
    – right above you will see the tab of order process, click on it
    – then you will see left above the option of shopping cart, click on ´settings´
    – here you can set up if the prices are inclusive or exclusive VAT
    • exclusively VAT. The VAT will be shown separately and will be processed in the price
    • including VAT. The prices are now including of VAT, you have the option to show the VAT separately or not separately.
  • VAT for customers in a foreign country
    – the first two steps are the same as above
    – left above you see the option customer data, click on VAT foreign country
    – below you have the option ´add new action´, click on it, you will see 3 options, the first two are relevant:
    • no VAT for certain regions. Here you can add for which region you do not want charge VAT, the most logical option is World (except European Union), because for deliveries outside the European Union you do not have to pay VAT. Furthermore you can add a notification for the customer, for example, ´there will be charged no VAT, because the delivery address is outside the European Union´.
    • no VAT for certain countries with VAT number/company name. Here you can select that with deliveries to entrepreneurs inside the European Union you do not have to pay VAT, because you are shifting the VAT to the entrepreneur in the other European Union country. The best option at ´no VAT for´ is ´European Union (except the Netherlands)´ To use this option, you need to know the VAT number and the company name of the customer. You can oblige the customer to fill in this information. If a customer does not fill in this information, then you can notify the customer, for example ´you have not filled in the fields of company name and VAT number, we have to charge VAT, do you want to continue?´
    To oblige the customer to fill in this information, go to customer data and select the option settings. Here you can decide what the customer has to fill in if he wants to order. You can add the fields of VAT number and company name.
