  1. Create a Geo-zone:

    Go to Admin -> System -> Localization->Geo Zones:

    Name: Tax Your Country.

    Country: Your Country.

    Zones: All zones (Or select any zone your need).

    If you need to set up taxes for different zones in your country, Geo-zone names and setup should reflect these zones:

  2. Create a Tax-rate:

    Admin – System – Localisation -> Taxes: Tax Rates:

    Name: Tax 19%.

    Rate: 19%.

    Type: Percentage (or fixed amount).

    Customer Group: Default.

    Geo-zone: Tax Your Country.

    If you need Tax-rates for different zones in your country, Tax-rate names and setup should reflect those zones:

    Create all the Tax-classes and Tax-rates you need for your country. If needed, do the above for all countries you ship to:
