Create Tax Rates for Square Online

DISCLAIMER: Tax compliance is your responsibility. We do not guarantee the applicability or accuracy of our tax tools. If you have any questions about your tax obligations, you should consult a professional tax advisor.

The tax tools built into your website help take the guesswork out of charging VAT, and make it simple to set up and manage tax rates.

Note: Tax settings from your Square account do not sync to Square Online. You’ll need to set up taxes specifically for online purchases in the Square Online Overview page.

Create Tax Rates

Taxes for areas outside of the US and Canada are charged at the country level only and must be created manually. The tax rates should be configured based on where the buyer of the goods or services is located.

To create tax rates:

  1. Go to the Square Online Overview page.

  2. Select Shared Settings > VAT.

  3. Click Add Tax Rate or if you already have a delivery rule for the country, click Edit.

  4. Select a country from the dropdown menu and enter the Country Tax Rate

  5. Add a Name for the tax rate, and click Save to apply your changes.

Note: Taxes created for countries outside of the United States can only have one tax rate per country.
