How sales tax is calculated in the US and rest of the world

Sales tax is a fee that most businesses must pay to their state or municipality on top of their earnings, which they pass to the customer at the point of sale.

Calculating sales tax can be complex because the rate depends on your location and what product or service you’re selling. In the UK, for example, sales tax is 20% across all regions, whereas in the US, sales tax varies between states.

No matter which state your business is operating in, the formula for calculating sales tax will be the same: product selling price x sales tax percentage.
