VAT / GST is a taxation system where taxes are pre-factored into the final prices of products. Instead of going to the store, picking out products, and then adding sales tax at the register, the price you see is the final price you pay. Click here to learn more.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • VAT is rarely seen within the United States, so is not recommended for US users.

  • VAT is currently NOT supported for 🍀Clover US🍀 users. 

How Thrive Handles VAT

If you price a product at $6.00 in Square and you have a 20% VAT, you are still selling it for $6.00, the price of the product isn't changed for your customer.

When you sell the product, the tax is going to be $1.00 and the revenue for the product is going to be $5.00. If your cost for this product is $2.00, you will have a profit of $3.00.

  • You paid $2.00 for the product.

  • The list price is ($5 + 20% VAT) $6.00.

  • Tax is already factored into the list price your customer pays.

  • NOTE: Thrive only calculates your VAT. Any VAT that has come down the line from your suppliers for rebates is NOT factored into Thrive's calculations.
