Taxes Calculation

Hi, I have a problem with the taxes as I am creating an invoice according to German law.

As you can see I have first a normal Event of € 80.00 with the correct taxes. I had to add them as price modifier. Now there is the issue that when I reduce the price with a code (-20% for example) the new total including taxes would be € 64.00. When I use [TXN_TAX_SUBTOTAL] now to show the taxes of 64 in the last row under the total (“davon MwSt.”) I face the problem that taxes are 0. This is probably due to the missing checkbox at the event that this item is taxable but we were forced to use the price modificator instead. Is there any way to calculate the total taxes of the reduced price?

Hi Jay,

You’re technically not charging taxes (you’re using a price modifier) so it’s actually expected that [TXN_TAX_SUBTOTAL] would return zero. May I ask are you looking to display something different than the 3rd line that shows a total of 12.77? If so, what exactly?

Hi Josh, this is right because of this workaround

The 3rd line is fine. The taxes of € 80.00 are calculated correctly. Our problem is in the last line where it is written «davon MwSt.», below the total of € 64.00. We would need to display the 19% taxes that are included in the € 64.00, the price after the reduction/coupon. The € 12.77 are the taxes that are included in the € 80.00. As we reduce the price by 20% we would now need to show the 19% that are included into the new total of € 64.00 (€ 10.22 » 64-(64/1.19). Thanks

You could add a new shortcode via some custom PHP that does the calculation if there was a promotion. Here’s a link to a gist that shows how to add a new shortcode:

You can add the above to a functions plugin.
