The following explains how Workspace and Queensberry handle tax on your retail sales in Workspace.
To comply with your legal obligations it is essential to supply the requested tax details in Workspace Settings / Price List Defaults.
TAX ON YOUR LOCAL SHOPPING CART SALES
All Queensberry Workspace sales are made by you, with Workspace acting solely as your agent. Assuming you have entered the necessary details in Workspace Settings, Workspace will help you calculate Sales Tax, VAT, GST or any other tax that you may need to charge and/or collect on your Workspace sales, including self-fulfilled sales.
If you add such taxes to your Workspace price lists, Workspace will display them in your shopping cart, and include them when collecting payment from your customers and when making payouts to you. You can make your prices:
— tax inclusive (tax will be deducted from the price)
— net of tax (tax will be added to the price)
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE that you are solely responsible for all obligations associated with any and all such taxes in connection with your Workspace sales, including their calculation, collection and payment to the appropriate authorities in your jurisdiction, and including liability for and payment of any penalties and interest. You agree to indemnify us from any and all claims related there to. If you are unsure of your tax obligations please consult your professional advisors.
TAX ON YOUR SALES INTO OTHER COUNTRIES
Workspace will assist you in calculating tax only on sales in your local jurisdiction, as specified by you. All other sales are treated as exports, which are generally zero-rated or exempt local taxes. If in fact you do have a liability to pay tax on sales in other jurisdictions it is your responsibility to calculate and collect them, and you should do so by building them into your prices.
Queensberry ships door to door into New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the USA and UK. Into other countries, taxes, duties and clearance fees may be charged to your customer, and couriers may not release or deliver the goods until they are paid.
TAX ON THE WHOLESALE COST OF YOUR SALES
If you purchase goods such as print products or albums from Queensberry or our other Workspace service partners, whether or not for onward sale to your Workspace customers, we will where appropriate add Sales Tax, VAT or GST to the purchase price. Workspace will display any such tax costs when you are building price lists for your shopping cart, and we will deduct them along with the purchase costs before making payments to you.
TAX ON WORKSPACE SUBSCRIPTIONS, COMMISSIONS AND SERVICES:
If you are resident outside New Zealand we treat all such sales as zero-rated exports and do not charge tax. If you are resident inside New Zealand we treat all such sales as"GST-inclusive".
We treat your sales and other account records as private and confidential except insofar as information is required to be disclosed to a governmental agency or otherwise required by law.
