What is Tax-Exclusive Sales Tax?
This article will take you through how to configure Sales Tax for Tax-Exclusive regions, i.e. US and Canada. Tax-Exclusive means that your business’s displayed prices do not include tax and tax will only be added to the subtotal of sales at checkout. For more information, you can check out our guide to Sales Tax in Glofox and our handy FAQ.
How to Configure Sales Tax in Glofox for Tax-Exclusive Businesses
For new Glofox customers, your onboarding manager will configure the correct tax mode for you, for example, if you are in a Tax-Exclusive region then your taxes will be set to exclude taxes by default.
If you are an existing customer set up as Tax-Inclusive at the moment, and wish to transfer to Tax-Exclusive, this may affect the price of your existing subscriptions, so please reach out and a Glofox admin will guide you through the process.
How to Create and Assign a Tax Rate
The steps below outline how to create a new tax rate in Glofox.
- From the Glofox dashboard, click the settings icon on the top-right-hand corner of the screen
- Then click ‘Settings’

- In the ‘Tax rates’ section, click ‘Add tax rate’

When creating or editing your tax rates you have the opportunity to automatically assign the tax to all new products and services if desired.
