How do I map Canadian sales tax codes?

Follow

Introduction

Cloud Cart supports QuickBooks Canada. Cloud Cart will match tax codes from QB to the shipping address region.

How do I get the tax codes to appear in Cloud Cart?

Tax codes are pulled from QuickBooks. Login to QB. On the left, click sales tax. Set it up, if asked. Close your browser and return to our site. You should see the codes.

How does it work?

Cloud Cart maps a sales tax code to a region. If you mapped GST for British Colombia, Connex would apply GST on all items and shipping. To map a code, follow these steps:

  1. Login to Cloud Cart.
  2. Click configure at my connections.
  3. On the left of the configure page, click sales tax.
  4. Click add new tax code.
  5. Add a mapping.

Here is the end result:

If I don't map a tax code, what happens?

Connex will apply exempt to the order.

My orders have multiple tax codes per line, like GST/PST. Does Cloud Cart support multiple codes?

Yes, you can map a single QB tax code that will apply GST/PST to orders. Here are some choices:

My shipping tax codes are different than my item tax codes. How do I map the tax code on shipping?

By default, Cloud Cart will apply the same tax code to products and shipping. Here is an example Magento order where tax on items and shipping is different. If you want to apply a different tax code to shipping, follow these steps:

  1. At Cloud Cart, hover over the gear.
  2. Click import on the left.
  3. In the attached sheet, change the map from to the two letter region from Canada. Change the map to column to the QB tax code for shipping.
  4. Upload the sheet.
