SuiteCommerce Advanced supports the display of VAT, GST, and PST tax amounts for Canadian, UK, and Australian editions of NetSuite.

Before enabling display of VAT/GST/PST in your web store, you must have your NetSuite account set up with the proper tax types and tax codes. For detailed information on setting up taxes for your NetSuite account, see the help topic Taxation.

Note

The display of VAT/GST/PST tax breakdowns is supported only in single Australian, UK, or Canadian editions or in One World editions with a single subsidiary configured.


To enable the display of VAT/GST/HST in your web store:

  1. Select the website and domain to configure at Setup > SuiteCommerce Advanced > Configuration.

  2. On the Shopping Catalog tab, enable the option If the Information is Available to your Country, shows detailed taxes in the cart.

  3. Verify that the proper tax codes are entered on the Accounting tab of the Item records.

  4. For Australian accounts, set the Prices Include Tax option on the Sales/Pricing tab of the Item record. Note the following behavior depending on the selection:

    • Prices Include Tax is enabled — This results in the display of the total cost including tax to display on the product page. On the checkout page, the breakdown of the item cost and tax are displayed separately.

    • Prices Include Tax is not enabled — This results in the display the cost without tax on the product display page. On the checkout page, the breakdown of the item cost and tax are displayed separately.

Once the display of VAT/GST/HST is configured for your account, users are shown the breakdown of VAT/GST/PST tax amounts during checkout.

Note

For Canadian accounts, a user must be logged in and have a default address selected. If not, a tax code error is returned.
