Tax Problems


Recommended Posts



I'm just finishing off my first shop with OSCommerce but am really struggling with applying the taxes. I considered myself a semi intelligent guy but this is baffling me :blink:


Here's what i'm doing.... Can anyone help with how to finish it off


The shop is a UK based shop so tax is going to be for two zones is my view..... EU and ROW


In "Zones" I have a list of all my countries and zones within countries...


In "Tax Zones" i need to create two Zones... "EU" and "ROW"


In "Tax Classes" i need to create two classes.... 17.5% VAT for EU and 0% for ROW...


When i add Zones to "Tax Zones" should I choose "All Zones" as the "Zone" as no other zone appears in the drop down list...




Desperate and tired :D

ok figured out I was being a bit of a muppet with the zones thing....


What i've done now is added all EU countries with "All Zones" to EU and ROW has "All Countries " added to it due to it being 0% TAX anyway... Is there anything i'm missing?
