-- HikaShop version -- : 5.1.0
-- Joomla version -- : 4.4.5
-- PHP version -- : 8.1.29

Australian Tax requirements are to show GST (a 10% tax) inclusive where applicable and GST excluded prices, on checkout.

We have some items which are inclusive of GST and others which are excluded.
Nothing is simple ;)

Looking to discover if there is anyone who has been in this situation setting things up.

Thanks

We have a bakery business which is selling our flour mix as well as baked goods.

Flour mixes and Breads are GST/Tax exempt and Sweet Things / Pastries have 10% GST applied as they are "manufactured.

There is NOTHING on that site that currently differentiates on a GST basis until now when the accountant informed me we needed to make a change. Those needing GST have that included in the price and those that don't are priced accordingly. The issue is that the reporting into Xero needs to differentiate between the two

I was cogitating last night and realised I need two tax rates

  1. GST - 10%
  2. No GST - 0%

Each item then has one or the other tax applied.
Challenge will then be to edit the reports to differentiate.

My initial question here was to see if any Aussies had been in a similar position and how they successfully resolved the issue.

Hopefully that's a bit clearer and useful to assist.
Thanks Philip

Hi,

Thanks for the details.
You don't need two tax rates. You can just have the 10% tax rate.
For products you don't want to be taxed, you can just set their "product tax category" to "none".
For the other products you want to be taxed, make sure the "default tax category" is selected in that "product tax category" setting.
Then, in System>Taxes, you must have one tax rule for that 10% tax rate with the "default tax category" selected in the "tax category" setting. That way, the tax will only apply to the products linked to the default tax category.
You actually could configure a 0% tax rate with another tax category and another tax rule to link them together so that the products exempt would have the 0% tax rat applied to them instead of no tax. But I don't think this is needed.

That way, when you configure HikaShop to display the prices with taxes, you'll see that the products without a tax category won't have anything changed, but the others will have the 10% rate applied to their price.

Got all the taxes working fine and the final cart display works fine.

The detailed display is what's got me stumped.



I'm after this


What item to edit to remove the Common price: $5.25 Our price: in the display?

:unsure:

Hi,

In your product edit form, you have a prices section. In there, you have a listing of prices as well as the "retail price", or MSRP.
You want to empty that "retail price" field.
