This article shows how certain Magento settings and Traderunner settings work together to achieve the desired result for tax handling.

It is not a replacement for understanding how Magento deals with tax and how to set it up correctly, or what tax obligations you have when selling on TradeMe.

Tax handling is an important part of selling across country borders. Several settings in Trade Runner contribute:

  • Price entered with tax checkbox in Screenshot 1
  • Non taxable classes values in Screenshot 2
  • Products are taxable checkbox in Screenshot 3

These must be set and checked by the retailer, currently these settings cannot be retrieved automatically by Trade Runner and the defaults are geared towards Australian sellers.

Also see below for suggested settings in Magento.

Screenshot 1: Settings -> Administration -> Magento Product Import -> Price Entered With Tax checkbox 

Screenshot 2: Settings -> Feeds -> Non Taxable Classes input field

The value or values entered in this field must be determined as explained here: Magento Suggested Settings for Australian Retailers in the Sales -> Tax -> Product Tax Classes section at the bottom of the page. 

Screenshot 3: Settings -> Trade Me -> General -> Products Are Taxable checkbox
