How do I get started with UK VAT rates?
In the drop down menu at the top of the page click 'Configure' > 'Tax' and set your default VAT rate. You can choose whether your prices include VAT or not.
You can also set the VAT per product by editing a product and putting the VAT percentage in the tax field.
Using Advanced Tax
You may need to set a different VAT rate for different products. You would use tax bands to do this.
- To set up tax bands click 'Configure > 'Tax' and then click the 'here', hyperlink for advanced tax options.
- Click the 'Switch ON advanced tax functionality' button to switch on advanced tax.
- Enter different VAT rates within the different bands. You will be applying the tax band to different products, so if you have a product that has a VAT rate of 5% then enter that into Band B
- Now edit your product and click on the 'options' link to apply a tax band.
