WooCommere taxes wrong (16% instead of 19%)
I need some help with setting up taxes for germany in WooCommerce.
Germany has a tax rate of 19%.
This is also the default setting of WooCommerce.
So far so good.
I created a 1,00 € product and the cart shows me this:
Subtotal 0,84 € VAT 0,16 € Total 1,00 €
VAT should be 0,19 €.
This is the behaviour I want:
see “Why do prices change when “Prices Include Tax”?”
I want to enter a tax inclusive price of 1,00 €.
Visitors from Germany (19% tax rate) should see this:
Subtotal 0,81 € VAT 0,19 € Total 1,00 €
I found many explanations why this happens.
(Because the “tax inclusive” price already includes 19% tax and you dont pay taxes for taxes, or something like that,…)
But I wasnt able to find a solution.
When I select “I will enter prices exclusive of tax” and set the products price to 0,81 €, the cart shows me this:
Subtotal 0,81 € VAT 0,15 € Total 0,96 €
This is even worse..
Does anyone know how to make the cart show the correct values?
Thanks for helping me out! 🙂
