The tax settings in A2X vary by the marketplace, and suggested tax and account mapping varies based on your clients' registered countries. This article helps explain how to enable advanced settings in A2X to allow for region-specific tax mapping.
Please note: These instructions are for the technical configuration of A2X and not tax advice. eCommerce platforms and tax rules are changing. Please check your client's tax settings in their e-commerce store settings.
Step 1: Enable Registered Country settings in A2X
Please Note: After connecting A2X to your client's e-commerce store, please reach out to the support team to enable this feature in your account if you do not see the VAT feature available in your settings.
This feature allows users to separate the transactions in A2X based on whether the orders shipped to their registered country. This feature will also update the accounts and taxes mapping page and allow users to map tax rates at a detailed level for accurate VAT and GST reporting.
Below is an example of available Accounts and Taxes mapping options before enabling the Registered Country settings in A2X

Please note that the additional columns include the transaction details and the shipped-to-country for Shopify, Ebay and Etsy users. Amazon users will have the option to choose either the shipped to country or the VAT jurisdiction country.
*Enabling the registered country feature allows A2X to separate the data and group the transactions into the following country groupings: 1. Main Country 2. Europe 3. Non-EU.
If you notice a mix of countries outside of the 3 main categories, please wait for the system to update and remove the additional entries. The update may take up to 24 hours.
