How to configure for German VAT Tax ?


Recommended Posts

Hi !


I tried to do this on myself for 2 days but it still doesn't do what it should, so i need your help.


My Shop should display the prices in Euro including VAT (16%)

If you go to the Checkout, it should Display Prices as follows :


Article 100 Euro (<- this includes tax)

Shipping 15 Euro (<- this includes Tax)

Total 115 Euro (<- also including tax)


This order includes 16% VAT 18.40 Euro


So i want the VAT Tax only for informational purposes, it should not be added to the total amount.


another question i have is: i installed the cod-module. but if you choose COD for delivery the COD-Fee i set will not be displayed in the checkout list.


thanks for any help ! :)

Hi Guido


Yes, i switched Display Prices with Tax to true.

The Problem is that the VAT Tax is added to the total Amount.

It is like this :


Article 100 Euro (price including tax)

Shipping 15 Euro (incl. tax)

16% Tax 18.40 Euro


total 133,40 euro (which is wrong because the tax is added two times.)




Now it works. I installed the VAT Display - AddOn and changed it so it displays the real price and the price * 0.16 = VAT


and magically the tax stopped adding to the total amount.

Hey Sebastian,

what exactly did you change in the VAT-Display AddOn? Simply installing the module doesn?t solve the problem.
