    Aha. As I suspected, the numbers are correct, it is the way that you are reading them that is incorrect. If you re-arrange the order of the output it may make more sense... as follows:

    Sub-Total: $110.00
    Australia Post (Parcel under 250gm): $6.05
    Total: $116.05
    * Total includes $10.55 GST
    ------------------------------------------------
    Same item, non GST:
    Sub-Total: $100.00
    Australia Post (Parcel under 250gm): $5.50
    Total $105.50
    plus 10% GST $10.55
    Gtand Total $116.05

    Not so. This is adding GST to the GST inclusive prices.

    As you should, because it maximises your input credits. but please note that this setting only affects how the postage costs are reported, not the actual cost. Using the current example, postage is going to cost *you* $6.05 no matter what, but as a GST registered business you are entitled to claim 55cents back on your next BAS. The GST setting in the ozpost module causes it to take the GST inclusive price ($6.05) and 'toss away' the GST component (0.55), making an *apparent* postage cost of $5.50, so when zencart does its 'thing' and re-adds the GST, the postage cost ends back as per the original cost ($6.05) and the universal balance is maintianed

    Anyway, as you can now (hopefully) see, the numbers are correct, and when exporting/importing to other formats/programs you should assume all prices include GST (therefore don't re-add by other application), and the GST amounts reported by zencart have already been added to the prices... the GST amounts shown being mostly for information/feedback use, and not to be re-added.

    All make sense now?

    Cheers

    I am using your module of course! (what else would an Australian dare use!) Paid version. I have Tax Class at 10% GST included selected in the module.

    If I unselect that setting I get $10 GST and the GST in the shipping is obviosult not taken into account.

    Thanks

    First I know nothing about Rod's module
    But on a total sales price of $116.05
    The gst included in the price is 116.05/11 = $10.55

    The only way to get $11.60 is 116.05/10 (which is incorrect)

    So $10.55 is the correct GST included in the price
    It appears Rod's mod is correct!
    and your calculation isn't

    Unless I am missing something else here.....
    (I am sure Rod will correct me if I am)

    Default Re: Australian GST (goods and services tax)

    Hi guys,

    For my Australian online store, I am trying to work out how to hide the 'tax symbol' from the shopping cart items, a bit like how crazysales dot com dot au looks.

    You will see that the subtotals are displayed with just the GST inclusive price and don't include the "Inc. GST". It tends to look a bit cleaner. Similarly, I just want to display the "Inc. GST" with the Total underneath the cart.

    Has anyone achieved this ?

    cheers,

    adam

    There's a 'tax symbol' somewhere? This is new to me.

    And we all instinctively know what crazysales dot com looks like don't we?

    Oh, I see, you want *us* to go take a look for you.
    Wouldn't it make more sense if you took a screenshot or made some other mockup of what you require, as opposed to directing us to some site that we may never have heard of, and then *hoping* we will be able to see what and where it is you are looking.

    Quite frankly, I can't figure out exactly what you want to do. In one sentence you are stating that *without* "inc GST" it looks cleaner (which one would assume is what you want), but in the next sentence you state that you "want to display the Inc. GST".

    I don't think it is possible to display it and not display it at the same time. Obviously I am mis-reading your question, but in my defense, the lack of any other responses would suggest that I'm not the only person confused as to what you are actually trying to do.

    Anyway, before trying to clarify yourself check you setting under /configuration/my_store/Display Prices with Tax. This setting determines whether the prices are displayed with tax or not
    Also check the 'description' entry under your Tax Rate settings for your GST entry. This setting defines the actual text that gets displayed ("GST", "Inc GST", "GST included", "TAX", etc, etc).

    I'm guessing that between these two options you should be able to do what you are needing, whatever that may be.

    Cheers

    Rod,

    Sorry to get you all fired up like that, let me try again !

    Attached is the screen shot of what I am trying to emulate. What I am hoping to do is hide my 'currency' symbol "Inc. GST" from the shopping cart contents, and just have it display on the total amount (just below the cart). I still want my product listings to show the "Inc. GST".

    Also check the 'description' entry under your Tax Rate settings for your GST entry. This setting defines the actual text that gets displayed ("GST", "Inc GST", "GST included", "TAX", etc, etc)
    I believe this text actually set in Localization > Currencies > Symbol Right

    Hope this helps,

    adam

    Hi,

    The solution is simple. Go to Localization - > currencies. Set the Value column to 1 for Australian Dollar and make it as default.

    Have any other issues PM me.

    Hi everyone.

    How would you go about adding the words "Tax Invoice" to the zen-cart invoice.
    at the moment I have it under Configuration > My Store > Store Address and Phone.

    the only problem is it appears on the contact us page.

    anyone been able to achieve this.

    Thanks
