What's up with the tax attribute?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

The tax attribute on my Google Merchant spreadsheet is giving me conflicting messages.

 

I add the tax rate for the UK and the error says it should be a Boolean TRUE|FALSE or YES|NO

But if I add the boolean TRUE, I get another error stating that my attribute has too little sub-attributes...

 

After all, what should I add in the tax column for a Google Shopping campaign targeting the UK?

 

Please help,

 

Koki

the tax attribute is only ever valid or accepted for a u.s. feed.

for a u.k. feed tax/vat must be included within the price --
the price submitted, the price on the landing-page, and
the default add-to-cart price, must all match exactly,
and must all include vat/tax, or is otherwise a policy
violation and grounds for disapproval or suspension,
at any time.

simply delete/remove the tax attribute, altogether, and
be certain that any price or sale_price includes vat/tax,
for a u.k. feed.

generally, the same feed cannot be used for more than one target-country --
that is not allowed and will usually result in the items being disapproved,
removed altogether, a suspension, or all of these.
