How to Set Up Tax Rules & Add VAT Number

This tax feature allows you to charge an additional percentage based on the total cost of the backer's pledge level, total cost of the backer's shipping, & the cost of any add-ons selected in BackerKit. You will have the option to apply these taxes to shipping fees as well. Currently, you can charge based on the country or State/Province in the US, Australia and Canada

Note: If you'd like to have Taxes/VAT applied to only your add-ons and not your pledge levels, this is possible. Please go into the edit of the pledge level(s) itself and uncheck the, "Is taxable" box.

To estimate potential taxes you may incur for international shipping, you can visit

1. Go to Tax Rules on the sidebar of your project. 

2. Click New Tax Rule.

3. Select a Tax Rate Group and click Submit if you would like add common tax rules or create a tax rule for a single country/region. 

NOTE: BackerKit is not responsible for ensuring correct rates 

You can also enter your VAT number and VAT address in this section:

Once inputted, your VAT number & address will show up on your pack list as well as the backers confirmation screen and email.
