How do I configure VAT on BigCommerce?

Consult a tax specialist to learn about your tax obligations and whether you're required to charge VAT.
  1. Go to Store Setup → Tax
  2. Go to the Tax Rates & Zones tab and click “Add a tax zone”
  3. Enter “European Union” as the tax zone, select all EU member states, and save

  4. Click on the “Tax rate” tab to set the tax rate for your new zone
  5. Enter a tax name, like VAT
  6. Enter the tax class rate. This depends on the rate of the country in which you're registered as a VAT payer.
  7. Enter the same tax rate for shipping.
  8. Check “Enable tax rate” and click “save”

Starting October 1st 2017, Printful will charge 21% VAT for orders fulfilled in Europe with a shipping address in the EU.
