Adding VAT twice?


Recommended Posts


Occasionally I get an order through with the VAT (value added tax) added twice, this does not always happen and I cannot see why this only happens occassionally.


For example:

Sub-Total: ?18.59

Shipping: ?0.00

VAT @ 17.5%: ?1.49 (which is correct)

VAT + VAT @ 17.5%: ?2.23 (which is incorrect)

Total: ?18.59


I only have one tax rate set in Admin which is "VAT @ 17.5%" and one tax class which is "VAT".

I would really appreciate any advise about this.

Hi Marcel,

I cannot see a pattern, this has only happened three times out of about 150 orders. I stand corrected on the VAT amount which adds to the mystery as the two amounts do not even add up to the correct amount of VAT.
