If you are selling goods to EU business customers who have a EU VAT number, you should not charge VAT to their purchases. However, product prices on Shopify always include VAT so if you want to exclude the tax for EU merchants, you can only do it by manually selecting customers to not collect their taxes in Shopify Customers. Therefore, the Tax Exempt feature helps your business sell to EU customers at a tax-free price if they have validated EU VAT numbers.
The Tax Exempt feature in our B2B/Wholesale Solution app offers:
- Automatic/Manual Installation: Install the function in just one click or we provide a thorough guide to manual installation in case our feature doesn’t work with your theme.

- VAT Validation on Cart page: If customers fill in their validated EU VAT number, they will be deducted VAT from their purchase price.
- VAT ID added on Order: Customer’s EU VAT number will be added to their order note so you can record easily.
- VAT ID added as attribute detail: Customer’s EU VAT number will be added to their order record.
This feature is only available on Advanced plan ($50/mon).
