OpenCart 1.5.x. How to manage taxes

This tutorial will show you how to manage taxes in OpenCart store.

First of all, you’d turn on the ‘display prices with tax’ option in your store:

Admin -> System -> Settings -> Store -> Option Tab: Display Prices With Tax: Yes (or No)

Create a Geo-zone:

Admin -> System -> Localisation: Geo Zones:
Name: Tax Your Country
Country: Your Country
Zones: All zones (Or select any zone your need)

IF you need Tax for different zones in your country the Geo-zone name and setup should reflect that zone!

Create a Tax-rate:

Admin -> System -> Localisation -> Taxes: Tax Rates:
Name: Tax 19%
Rate: 19%
Type: Percentage (or fixed amount)
Customer Group: Default
Geo-zone: Tax Your Country

IF you need Tax-rates for different zones in your country the Tax-rate name and setup should reflect that zone!

Create a Tax-class:

Admin -> System -> Localization -> Taxes: Tax Classes:
Name: Tax 19%
Rate: 19%
Based on: Shipping Address
Priority: 1

IF you need Tax-classes for different zones in your country the Tax-class name and setup should reflect that zone!

Create all the Tax-classes and Tax-rates you need for your country. If needed do the above for ALL country’s you ship to.

Now that you have set up the correct Geo-zones, Tax-rates and Tax-classes you only need to set the correct Tax-settings per store:

Admin -> System -> Settings -> Store -> Option Tab:

Use Store Tax Address:: Shipping address

Use Customer Tax Address: Shipping address
