About Imported Etsy Fees
Etsy fees are imported via our Etsy sales channel integration. The importer checks for any fees that have been generated within the date range specified.
For a rundown on all Etsy fees and what they mean, see The Complete Guide to Etsy Fees.

Due to new international laws, Etsy as a marketplace is regulated to collect and remit taxes for several countries and some US states. This means that the relevant sales tax will be added to your sale revenue automatically as part of the checkout process.
Sales Tax: This is incurred when a sale you have made is required to have sales tax paid on it. This includes US marketplace facilitator tax that is remitted directly to tax authorities by Etsy.
As of Jan 1, 2022, an expense to account for any Etsy remitted sales tax will be imported under the Taxes and Licences category for each order. Before Jan 1, 2022, no expense will be imported for the remitted sales tax as this fee was not available in any Etsy feeds. If required, this taxable amount will need to be created manually.
This tax expense will also be created if the seller is in Australia to represent GST taken on eligible Etsy orders.
VAT Tax Fee / VAT Seller Services: This is the tax calculated on any seller service you have purchased directly from Etsy, if this is applicable to your location.
These fees are created as Expenses, categorised as a Taxes and Licences expense line item.
Any other fees not listed above will be imported as an Unknown Etsy Fee. These can be renamed and categorised manually if need be.
Fees for Refunds
Etsy unfortunately doesn't provide details on what expenses refunds are associated with, so we cannot import these at present automatically. We recommend that you review your Etsy refund history and ensure that the correct expense is edited or removed so that your tallies are correct.
* For imports with a date range before 31 March 2019, Listing, Transaction, Shipping and Advertising fee data is retrieved from the old Etsy billing system (Bill Charges). Imports after 31 March 2019 are retrieved from the new Etsy Billing System.
