EE3 & VAT

I am using EE3 and need to charge tax on future events.
I understand I can use the surcharge feature – but I would rather enter the full price and have VAT removed/shown, rather than have a surcharge.

Is this possible?

Yes. Many users of EE3 enter the full price (inclusive VAT) and itemise the VAT on the invoice using a little PHP calculation.

There’s an example in this other thread:

That seems pretty complicated and drawn out?

Hi Matt,

EE4 has the tax features which means it has built in support for displaying taxes, whereas EE3 does not. If you want to use EE3 and display a VAT line, the thread I linked to is, as far as I know, the simplest approach.

Unfortunately EE4 doesn’t have the add-ons I need available yet.

Josh is it possible to preview the PDF invoice?
I’d like to see how VAT no. etc appear after inputting the information.

Also, will VAT appear on all invoices? Or just those issues after the code is changed?

You can download the PDFs from the admin’s Registrations screen by clicking on the pdf icon. This will allow you to preview any changes.

Thank you – I have now implemented the changes.
I have edited the invoice to show the VAT number, but VAT is not present on the PDFs.

Will it be present only on future transactions?

Hi Matt,

It should show up on existing transactions. Can you check to see if you modified a copy of the invoice where the copy is located? Its folder path location is important so that it can be read.

If it’s a copy, the copy needs to be uploaded to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/gateways/invoice along with copies of all the files from the /invoice folder.

I copied the folder to the /wp-content/uploads/espresso/gateways/invoice folder, then edited the templete.php file

But there is still no VAT showing.
Ideally I need to only show VAT from a certain date (01/05/2015).

Can you clarify the actual file path of where the files are now, and along with that, post a link to a pastebin of the template file here so we can investigate?

I managed to get it to display correctly now.
If there is a way to only show VAT on events purchased after a certain date that would be great.

Hi Matt,

There’s a way to do a check against the payment date, which is in a variable in the template that’s named $payment_date. If that date is greater than or equal to the date you want to start including the VAT message, then display it.

A PHP developer on your team will be able to write the code that performs the check.
