How i can Add VAT option for each product. There are some with VAT and others with no VAT. And if VAT it should show on the order for the customer.

Magento products have tax classes you need for every tax percentage one tax class.

BE CAREFUL! if you ship in multiple countries and have this country tax, you need a tax class for every product group which has a tax percentage in one or the other country.

Example (only VAT and not 100% sure this is correct in regards of content): Germany:

  • cinema ticket 19%
  • Books 7%
  • cigaretes 19%

This looks like you need two tax classes.


  • cinema ticket 13%
  • cigaretes 20%
  • books 10%

But if you ship to austria you need three!

After creating all the tax classes you need to define all tax rates for each country.

All customers get a tax class too. So you can differ between the ones who pay tax (customers from your country normally) and thos who don't e.g. companies from EU.

Then you need to map all tax classes to the tax rates.

  • thank you for your response but i have one question , when i create a tax class and define all steps needed , can i set VAT fixed value not in % ? Jun 6, 2016 at 8:13
  • No. But Magento supports Fixed Product Taxes. I have no clue how this works: docs.magento.com/m1/ce/user_guide/tax/tax-fixed-product.html Jun 6, 2016 at 9:25

    I can confirm (to the best of my knowledge) that the AT tax rates are correct to this date. Jun 6, 2016 at 10:54
