    I am from Europe and would like to make products available to the US market. I would prefer to include our prices including all taxes (this is mandatory in Europe by the way). I know that most US prices are excluding taxes, but I'd like to offer all-in prices to our US customers anyway.

    Is my idea realistic? Is there something we should be aware of?


    Thanks for your help!

    As different countries within the EU have different tax rates, how are you doing that at the moment. I am not aware that all EU business should show prices including tax. If I have a V.A.T. number, do you then not charge V.A.T.?

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    Mal's Forms / Scripts and the syntax are here.

    Hi GT,

    In Europe consumers pay the tax in the country where they buy. So if a German consumers buys something in a Belgian webshop, he has to pay the Belgian VAT rate.

    VAT numbers only apply to business customers, not consumers.

    I'd like to open a US webshop where all prices are all-in prices (so including shipping, taxes, etc). So if a US citizen buys something with a price of $ 100 that is the all-in price.

    Is it possible to do (apart from the technical side) or are there things that I have to take into account?
