Tax-Inclusive Prices & Tax Rates
Ability to set a tax-inclusive rate, so a product with price=50 and an inclusive tax of 10% would actually display a tax line item of $5 on the cart/receipt. When voting, please provide feedback (including the country you need it for) on this request if you do vote for it.
There's a workaround here: http://bit.ly/ce00cA
For the forum discussion relating to this item, please comment here:
We do plan on improving our systems to handle this. Unfortunately, we don’t have a timeframe, but it is high up on the request list.
UPDATE 2014-12-10: We are aware of the changes to the EU VAT coming in 2015, and this feature is definitely planned. Thanks everybody for chiming in.
UPDATE 2014-01-26: A user has made a working customization using Twig to change the cart display to get a VAT style cart and checkout working. Email us if you’d like that.
Still need tax-inclusive pricing
UK store with international customers
Many customers just want to know their total price early in the process, so this is still a priority
I'd be happy with tax-inclusive or with required entry of the ZIP/Postal Code.
the workaround links are broken - also just wondering how it's going and if the workarounds are any better than what I'm having to do already? We have an on the fly php VAT script but with lots of products / foxycart forms on list pages, it's probably not very efficient.

Links above are broken: use these ones
Anyway, seems that issue sleeps for years here. Without this, its not possible to do serious business in europe. If you can't display tax includes prices to your costumers, you can't do a legally valid shop in most european countries.

Needed for Germany. Any idea when VAT-handling is available? Thanks!
Need this for England, so customers know what component of the total is VAT
Needed for B2C in many VAT-countries that require merchants to disguise the tax portion of the bill. ;-)
Hello, the link to the workaround no longer seems to work.
Need this for Germany.

Need this for Ireland, so customers know what component of the total is VAT.

Norway, at the moment 25 %, but can change over time

Yes - Australia has GST (10%), and there are obligations about showing the GST comoponent in the invoice, and also making it clear on the product pages/cart that the prices are INC/EX GST.
There are actually a few situations where certain items to certain customers are not billed with GST, but I think if you build a system that was sophisticated to handle Canada and EU, our fairly simple tax system down here would work out of the box.

This is a big issue for those of us in Europe trying to adopt FoxyCart. It seems like a simple thing to fix, but has been pending for 4 years. Is there an ETA? If nothing else, at least the Cart should show the taxes which will be included in the total amount during checkout.

Please Please - Can this be done soon, it really is a pain for UK/Europe based shops.
Retailers in the UK must display the inclusive of VAT price and then show the breakdown of net, VAT and Gross on the paid invoice/receipt.
It looks like this feature would help everyone developing a store outside of the USA!

In European countries and in Asia, tax is already included in the price and prices must be shown already including the tax.
This would be awesome for Australian customers - and by that definition... me too.
Please do implement this. Need this for Netherlands and Belgium.
Carolin says: Prices are generally always displayed with VAT included unless the business is targeting other businesses specifically. So this option would be of huge benefit!
I think this goes for the whole EU and many more ? Only the US adds the tax in the end ? I am currently investigating Foxycart. Strange it still offers only the US style option.
can foxycart use http://taxcloud.com?
