I have a product which has tiered prices but when i search for the item it show the lowest prices but includes VAT (tax) how could i get it so the VAT is not included.

This is the block of code which displays the price.

<?php if ($this->getDisplayMinimalPrice() && $_minimalPriceValue && $_minimalPriceValue < $_convertedFinalPrice): ?>

        <?php $_minimalPriceDisplayValue = $_minimalPrice; ?>
        <?php if ($_weeeTaxAmount && $_weeeHelper->typeOfDisplay($_product, array(0, 1, 4))): ?>
            <?php $_minimalPriceDisplayValue = $_minimalPrice + $_weeeTaxAmount; ?>
        <?php endif; ?>

        <?php if ($this->getUseLinkForAsLowAs()): ?>
            <a href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl(); ?>" class="minimal-price-link">
        <?php else: ?>
            <span class="minimal-price-link">
        <?php endif ?>
        <span class="label"><?php echo $this->__('As low as:') ?></span>
        <span class="price" id="product-minimal-price-<?php echo $_id ?><?php echo $this->getIdSuffix() ?>">
                <?php echo $_coreHelper->formatPrice($_minimalPriceDisplayValue, false) ?>

        <?php if ($this->getUseLinkForAsLowAs()): ?>
        <?php else: ?>
        <?php endif ?>
    <?php endif; 

I have tried just taking out the


from the code but that did nothing if anyone could help that would be brilliant

If you don't need show taxes in frontend you can try this:

Go to:

System > Configuration > Sales > Tax > Price Display Settings

Set te attribute:

Display Product Prices In Catalog -> Excluding Tax

Reindex and clean cache.

If you need show taxes you can try this:


$_minimalPrice = $_taxHelper->getPrice($_product, $_minimalPriceValue, $_simplePricesTax);

And change it by:

$_minimalPrice = $_taxHelper->getPrice($_product, $_minimalPriceValue);

I hope will help you!

  • i need to show tax on product pages and checkout it is just on the products that display a low as price on product list pages and search results

  • Sorry, I had misunderstood you. Search: $_minimalPrice = $_taxHelper->getPrice($_product, $_minimalPriceValue, $_simplePricesTax); And convert by : $_minimalPrice = $_taxHelper->getPrice($_product, $_minimalPriceValue);
