When do I need to consider taxes?

Tax needs to be considered both when you purchase your products from Gelato, and as you are charging your own customers. Whether or not tax is due, and the corresponding tax rate depends on:

  • Where you are registered

  • The item purchased

  • The shipping country and the buyer's registered location

  • The production (printing) country - is typically the same as the destination country

Where can I see the applicable taxes for my orders?

When Gelato needs to charge tax, you will see the applicable taxes in the website checkout and as a line item on your billing invoices and receipts. Gelato's local tax ids will be written on your invoice.
