Issue Configuring Taxes

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Just installed the software and I need to configure the tax codes for the following.

 

If the purchaser is in Ontario, it charges 7% Fed and 8% provincial

If the purchaser is in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland, it charges 15% fed tax

If the purchaser is in Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon, Northwest Territories or Nunavut, it charges 7% fed tax

If the purchaser is not in Canada at all, it does not charge any tax.

 

Is there a tutorial for setting up Canadian Taxes anywhere online.

 

Help...

 

Thanks

 

Alex

Canadian Tax Display

Canada Tax Zones Setup notes

Canadian seperate tax

Also look in the extras folder that comes with osC.  It has a great tutorial on taxes.

Ok.. I did the Tax Zones and the Separate Tax. But now It doesnt look like it is calculating right. and It is only showing the GST for the item, not both taxes on a test customer.

Double check how you set up the taxes.  I think you missed a step somewhere.

 

I re-entered all three of the links and am getting wierd calculations.

 

What I need it to do is calculate and show the breakdowns for PST if in Ontario, HST in the maritimes, and just GST for the Rest of Canada. Or nothing if the buyer is not in Canada.

 

Which step or module is best to do this with the breakdowns.

 

Thanks

The problem with osC (as far as I have ever been able to figure out) is that a product can only have 1 tax class. So you could either do it the way you did or, charge GST "or" PST, "or" HST. But breaking them apart is not the way osC comes. You would have to code in a seperate second tax class for that.

 

I haven't played around with taxes too much though because all my products are zero rated for GST and PST exempt.

 

PM me and you can check out the way I have it set up.
