Display prices with taxes - regardless of zone
« on: September 29, 2014, 10:50:57 AM »
Hello,

I'm nearly there with my cart - but I am struggling with the taxes.

I'd like my storefront to treat everyone as though they are from the UK and display prices with taxes.
I set up a tax zone and tax class, have set the display prices with tax to on in the checkout.

regardless of whether I set the tax zone to none - or UK tax, it still does not display the product prices with taxes.

Please help - if this doesn't work then I may be forced to use another cart system as this is a showstopper.

Thanks for that - I did the following :-

Countries - switched status to OFF for all except United Kingdom
Zones - switched status to OFF for all except United Kingdom
I have only one location - United Kingdom
Tax Classes - Only one Class - "Taxable Goods" with Rate of 20% - Location Zone is All location Zones

I have an item that costs 4.99 - it shows up as 3.86 when I put it in the cart, the tax is calculated as 0.64 (this is not 20%)

What am i doing wrong?

Let's check your currency settings first - your default currency needs to be set to 1.00000.

Here's the doc on it -

If that isn't the issue,  keep posting.

Thank you - that certainly helped. The problem was the exchange rate was set.

The prices now appear correctly  - but unfortunately only when I set the tax class to None
I will look into the other suggestions later as I need to get my kids to bed.

Thank you Basara and llegrand!

I now have a great shopping cart that works the way I want it to.

I simply had to adjust the prices to account for the tax that was added on top.
