Taxes on Cosmetics


viaGlamour only charges taxes on orders if your billing address is located within Canada. Orders shipped to the EU may incur import tax.

As a merchant, you might need to charge taxes on your sales, and then report and remit those taxes to your government. Although tax laws and regulations are complex and can change often, you can set up Shopify to automatically handle most common sales tax calculations. You can also set up tax overrides to address unique tax laws and situations.

If you use Shopify's default rates, then you need to confirm that they are current and correct for your particular circumstances. You can override them whenever necessary.

Remember: Shopify doesn't file or remit your sales taxes for you. You might need to register your business with your local or federal tax authority to handle your sales tax. The calculations and reports that Shopify provides should help make things easier when it’s time to file and pay your taxes.

You should always check with a local tax authority or a tax accountant to make sure that you charge your customers the correct sales tax rates, and to make sure you file and remit the taxes correctly.

Customer Taxes

Requires Shopify

Shopify can collect taxes from your customers automatically if required. For example, you might not need to collect taxes if you are a Canadian business selling within Canada below $30,000 CAD sales per year. You can let Shopify monitor your sales and register for a tax identification number when you meet thresholds for different provinces, states, or countries.

Enabling Tax Collection

Enable taxes by navigating to Shopify's settings, selecting taxes, and completing any recommended actions.
