All the products on my site are inclusive of tax.

However at the cart and checkout stage and also any invoices I'd still like to be able to display what the tax portion was.

Like this site.

Inclusive tax shows breakdown

The Total is still just £75.05 + £3.99 delivery, but it's good to show the customer what the tax portion was.

Unfortunately on my site magento keeps showing the tax value as £0.00:

Tax breakdown shows 0.00

I'm using Magento Community Edition 1.7.

I have setup my tax details as follows:

System > Conifguration > Sales > Tax System Config Sales tax

Sales > Tax > Manage Tax Rules Sales Tax Manage Tax Rules

Sales > Tax > Manage Tax Zones and Rates enter image description here

Product > General Product settings

Is there anything obvious I'm overlooking?

  • What is your shipping origin (System > Configuration > Shipping Settings > Origin)? Jun 16 '13 at 21:16
  • You are spot on - that is exactly what it was. Makes sense. So much to check when setting up tax the mind becomes pickled.

You have set tax calculation to be based on Shipping Origin. This needs to be configured under System > Configuration > Shipping Settings > Origin
