Change language when including VAT from 'price includes taxes' to 'with VAT'

Hi all,

The standard nomenclature for sales tax in the UK is ‘VAT’. When adding taxes in to the price of an event, the fine print says ‘price includes taxes’.

How can I change this to text that is more conventional for the UK market?

Hi Chris,

Where exactly are you trying to change that nomenclature for the prices? And are you trying to make it conditional on whether price modifiers are in use or not?

Hi Gareth, thanks for the reply. I tried to attached a screen shot, but couldn’t get it to work, but you can see it here just above the button that says ‘Add to event cart’. It’s the bit attached to the asterisk:

The tax isn’t conditional, I just want that wording to say ‘includes VAT’ instead.

You can change that string by ‘translating’ it, we have a few different examples of how to do that but you can use the custom function here:

The string you need to translate is * price includes taxes, so place that within the $strings array like this:

$strings = array(
        'Register' => 'Sign up',
        'Confirm and go to payment page' => 'Complete registration',
        'No events available...' => 'No upcoming classes at this time...',
        'click here to add a new state/province' => 'click here to enter address outside US/Canada',
        '* price includes taxes' => '* includes VAT',
        // Add some more strings here

Then add that function to a Custom Functions Plugin to change the output.
