The Tax feature allows you to define taxes for the items you sell. The feature is represented by two entities: tax rates and tax sets.

The tax rate is the percentage of the sales price that buyer pays as a tax. In the default Spryker implementation, the tax rate is defined per country where the tax applies. See Managing tax rates for details on how to create and manage tax rates for countries in the Back Office.

A tax set is a set of tax rates. You can define tax sets in the Back office.

Tax sets can be applied to abstract product, product option and shipment:

Product option Creating a product option
Shipment Creating a delivery method

International tax rates and sets

Align your business with international tax standards by defining tax rates and sets. Determine country-based tax rates for products, options and shipments, that will automatically be applied to the respective shops.

In a tax system, the tax rate is the ratio (usually expressed as a percentage) at which a business, person, items are taxed.

Tax set is a set of tax rates that can be applied to a specific product.

Keeping that in mind, the tax rate is created first. Tax rate

Once the rate is defined, you can attach it to a tax set(s). A tax set can contain from one to many tax rates. Tax set
