Tax Collected by Settlement


In this article, you will learn about Sellercloud’s Tax Collected by Settlement report. This report provides a summary of the tax collected for all settlements. It includes transactional, financial, and location information.

Settlement is the process of transferring funds from a payment processor or acquiring bank to a merchant’s bank account. The settlement process reconciles the transactions and ensures that the funds from the customer’s payment are accurately credited to the merchant’s account. Settlements contain information about a channel’s order-related fees, commissions, and taxes.

You can see the following:

  • Transaction Information: Transaction Type, Order Number, Order Date, Transaction Date, and Channel.
  • Financial Information: Gross Sales, Tax, Marketplace Facilitator Tax, Tax Due, and Grand Total.
  • Location Information: State, Zip, and County.
For more information about Sellercloud’s Financial Reporting Suite, see the Reports FAQ.
