Important Notes on GST/IVA/JCT/VAT (and Similar Indirect Local Tax Fees): Fees are rounded to the nearest cent per transaction. The report shows the sum of those rounded fees, which means that the value in the report isn’t strictly the quoted percentage of total volume. You will be able to see a breakdown of these fees on your monthly tax invoice, which is available and downloadable by the 10th of the following month in the Documents section of your dashboard. If your business is registered locally, you should be able to account for these indirect taxes on Stripe’s fees in your local returns.
