Setting Up Your Tax Rate

To ensure accurate and consistent data reporting, we recommend setting up your tax rate within the CrowdComms CMS. Follow these guidelines to avoid user errors and double taxation:

  1. Configure Tax Rate in CMS First:

    • Set your tax rate in the CrowdComms CMS before making any adjustments in Stripe.
    • Creating a Tax Rate should only be done in CMS which will replicate into Stripe.
  2. Stripe Tax Rate Activation:

    • Payments will not be processed if there is no active tax rate in Stripe, regardless of the tax rate set in the CMS.
    • Once generated, tax rates in Stripe remain "Active" and Stripe will always apply the most recent active tax rate.
  3. Managing Tax Rates in Stripe:

    • If you need to change the tax rate please do so in the CMS, it is advisable to set legacy Tax Rates to "Archived" in Stripe so its clear in Stripe which Tax Rate is currently being used.

By following these steps, you can maintain accurate and consistent tax application across both platforms. 

It is highly recommended to set your tax rate in the CMS and allow that information to be fed back to your Stripe Account via our platform. For information on setting the tax rate in the CMS please see here.

Enabling Receipts

For the customer receipts functionality, please ensure to enable receipts on your Stripe Account. You can find more information on how to enable receipts on Stripe here

To enable automated receipts, toggle Successful payments on in your Customer emails settings. Stripe only sends receipts to successful and completed payments. If the payment fails or is declined, a receipt will not be sent.

To ensure your customers receive their receipts you will also need to white list the Stripe Domain ''.

For more on white listing please see here.
