Role of Sellfy in taxes
Sellfy doesn't file taxes for you, so you'll need to report and pay taxes directly to your local tax authority. Please contact your local tax authority to get the most accurate information about what percentage of taxes you need to pay for selling digital products (if at all) - this depends entirely on where you're located.
Our role is to help you set up tax amounts for your products and to reflect those in your sales reports.
Setting up taxes
To set up taxes for your products, navigate to "Store settings" → "Tax Settings". There, you can set the tax amount by country or state. You may also choose whether the tax is included in the product price or if it's added on top of it. When you apply taxes to your store, we automatically calculate the tax amounts for each country/state and display them to the customer at the checkout.
We collect all the order data for you in the "Orders" section, including the product price, tax amount and customer's country of location. This gives you an overview which you can submit to your accountants or directly to your local tax authority, depending on their requirements. You can export the order data in the "Orders " section of your account by pressing the "Export CSV" button. There, you can also choose the period which will be reflected in the datasheet.
We also offer tools for European VAT MOSS reporting. You can find out more about the European VAT MOSS here: How does Sellfy handle the new EU VAT laws?
