As a store owner, you have full control over the VAT applied to your shipping rates – you can apply the appropriate VAT rates for your courier-delivered items, or exempt your products if you’re sending them via Royal Mail.
You also don’t have the extra headache of working out your VAT liability percentage for shipping, your Kong store also automatically applies the appropriate VAT rate to your shipping fees based on the VAT liability of the particular items in that order.
This rate is calculated product by product, so even if an order contains a mix of Reduced, Zero-rated and Standard-rated items, the appropriate VAT shipping liability will be automatically added.
This gives you specific management, whereas some platforms only allow you can to either charge tax on shipping or not, globally.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
