Adding VAT to just shipping cost

Recommended Posts

I need to add VAT to JUST the shipping cost (UK based). Squarespace has informed me this isn't a built in-function they have at the moment, which isn't ideal. I was hoping someone else would have a workaround as there are many businesses who sell products that don't need VAT added to the products, just the shipping.

Thank you

You can add VAT to shipping costs but, as you pointed out, you cannot add VAT to shipping costs without adding it to physical products, at the same rate. This is because Squarespace only allows you to set one VAT rate per site, not per product. It's been this way for a while (see my limitations list). This isn't something that can be overcome with code or addons.

I appreciate this isn't what you'll want to hear, but I hope that a definitive answer is better than none 🙂
