Today’s Code Update


Today’s code push contains the long awaited tax inclusive pricing support!  There are settings required to set price display mode to tax inclusive and US customers will still see all prices as tax exclusive. We’ve also added a price rounding rule as well to simplify setting the prices for your products.

Important Setup Notes for Tax Inclusive Customers

  • Set Admin Settings >> General Settings >> Company >>Use Tax Inclusive Pricing to yes. Select a default tax store. The default tax store will be the tax inclusive rate shown on the Product General Tab. Store specific rates and prices will show on the prices tab.

  • Set Manage Stores >> Your store >> Store Preferences >> Store Prices are Tax Inclusive 

  • Add Show Tax Inclusive Price to your Receipt Template

  • Check Linked Apps >> Magento API Settings >> Sync Rules tab. ON the bottom right it should show your web site prices are tax inclusive (if it doesn’t email support)

  • Please note most reports still show tax exclusive prices.


If your Magento site catalog has more than 1 product tax class


Any product that does not use the default product tax class defined in Linked Apps >> Magento API Settings:
  • Product Tax class will have to be updated manually in Magento if the product was created in MicroBiz. Product Tax class will have to be updated manually in MicroBiz if the product was created in Magento.
We are working on mapping the tax classes at this time to eliminate this step.


New Products – Setting the Tax Inclusive Price


Once using tax inclusive pricing is active the new/edit product general tab price widget will change and tax inclusive price will also be visible. In the example below the cost is 38.50 and I entered 54%  (GP) initial markup. The rounding rule made the tax inclusive price 99.00 automatically and the retail, tax and GP was adjusted for the rounded tax inclusive price. Of course you can leave rounding off if you’d like and override the retail and tax inclusive retail any way you’d like. You can enter the tax inclusive price directly as well. The tax is calculated using the default tax store in the settings. Individual store prices and tax rates are visible in the Prices tab.
