TAX & DUTIES OF GOVERMENTAL AND THIRD PARTIES & THEIR CALCULATIONS
Tax calculations may be provided by a third-party tax service, depending on how your Services are configured. You are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with your ecommerce and point-of-sale activities. You must collect, report, and/or pay the correct amounts to the appropriate authorities, if applicable, and if needed, inform your customers about any taxes they may be required to pay and issue appropriate invoices. While some ecommerce features allow you to include sales taxes or other taxes in transactions, you should not rely solely on these features to ensure tax being collected, or remitted to tax agencies, is accurate. We make no guarantees about third-party tax services. We recommend you consult an appropriate tax professional to review tax rates applied to orders, and they should inform you how to reconcile differences that may exist for your specific tax situation. CORKSY is not responsible for taxes not being correctly calculated on orders.
You shall be solely responsible for and agree to pay, indemnify, and hold CORKSY harmless from any and all sales, use, communications, excise, or similar tax or duty, and any other tax not based on CORKSY’s net income, including penalties and interest and any associated professional fees, and all other imposts levied upon or chargeable with respect to the use, license, sale, or delivery of the Services or other deliverables in respect of this Agreement, and any costs associated with the collection or withholding of any of the foregoing items.
