-- HikaShop version -- : 4.4.0
-- Joomla version -- : 3.9
-- PHP version -- : 7.3

How do I set up EU sales tax of 20% only if products total less that £135

Above that the sale is treated as an export

I have EU sales tax already set up but don't want it applied above the £135 total

Orders from the EU under £135 VAT charged at point of sale
Orders from the EU over £135 receiving customs to charge import tax.

Apparently there is a EU wide tax return due to be launched in July by the EU.

Hi,

That's complex.
The way the tax system works doesn't allow to add that easily.
First, different products can have different taxes. Second, taxes are calculated on listings, on the product page, etc, not just in the cart.
Also, even when calculating the taxes for a cart, it is done before the the prices are summed:
- prices are loaded
- taxes are calculated on these prices (different products can have different taxes)
- prices and taxes are summed
So the mechanism to select how to tax a price doesn't have the information of the cart total.

Now, could you provide more information about this minimum of 135£ ? Does it include shipping fees ? Payment fees ?
Coupons ?
I've found this information so far:
www.hellotax.com/blog/taxation/vat-thres...ll%20be%20introduced .

I suppose the best would be to have a small plugin to implement one of the events triggered while the cart is being loaded to cancel the taxes on all the prices in the cart with a rule that can be configured in the settings of the plugin. That way, the plugin could take into account the price after the coupon is deduced and after the shipping fee is added, etc and it wouldn't mess with the whole structure of the tax calculation system in HikaShop.

It would be no tax on sale total after any coupons applied, but before postage,and payment fees are not part of the £135. So just the final goods total

Hi,

Then the best would be for the plugin to implement the new event onAfterCartCouponLoad( &$cart ) which is to be added in the next version of HikaShop to be released soon.
Such plugin would require 2 or 3 dozen lines of code.

That's a great help - when is this version released? - doing that coding is way beyond me though, I'd need someone to write it for me - any recommendations?
