View and Configure Taxes in Xero

When your store is connected with Xero, Xero can help you manage and change your tax rates.

The Xero app creates tax rates based on orders from your Shopify store. Tax rates are created any time your Shopify data is exported to Xero. Tax rates created by the Xero app will have names that begin with "SH".

To view tax rates created by the Xero app:

  1. From your "Xero Dashboard", select Settings.

    select settings

  2. Select General Settings.

    select general settings

  3. In the "Organisation" section, select Tax Rates.

    select tax rates

  4. Select the Tax Rates bar to expand the list of tax rates that have been created in Xero.

    select the tax rate bar

That's it!

If your Xero account is based in the United Kingdom, Australia, or New Zealand, you must map your Shopify tax rates to the default Xero tax rates. You can do this while setting up the Xero app, or at any time from the Xero app's "Settings" page:

  1. From "Shopify Admin", select Apps.

    Select Apps

  2. Select Xero.

    Select Xero

  3. Select Settings.

    select settings

  4. In the "Tax settings" section, select a tax rate for each of the listed categories.

    select tax rates

  5. Select Save.

    select save

That's it!
