[ic] European taxation (again...)
Tue, 12 Dec 2000 23:29:52 +0200
I have been browsing the mail-archives for a while and trying to find an
clear and easy solution in solving the tax-problem that probably many of the
European minivend-users bump into. As many of you know, the tax is based on
Does anyone have a simple solution (I'm a real amateur with this...) in how
to solve this issue. It would be nice have a solution that would use the
normal [salestax] tag. The prices are given in the productdb without tax.
Here a small example: The db contains a field with the tax percentage. This
field should then be used when calculating the basket.
name price tax
toothbrush 10.00 0.22
toothpaste 20.00 0.22
a book 35.00 0.17
Item qty price tax incl tax
toothbrush 1 10.00 2.20 12.20
toothpaste 1 20.00 4.40 24.40
a book 1 35.00 7.70 42.70
tax 17% 7.70
tax 22% 6.60
total amount inclusive tax 79.30
In my country we have also to make a summary on each tax-category. This
seems to be too difficult for me to solve, and I would appreciate if someone
has a solution for this.
