Displaying taxes

The default output of the PDF invoice (Simple template) shows the taxes of the order in the same way the taxes are represented in the WooCommerce email that is sent to the the customer. Like in the example below:

If you have a copy of our Premium Templates extension you will have more choice on how taxes are displayed on your invoice. You will have the possibility to separate your taxes in the totals of your invoice as well as displaying tax per product in the product overview on your invoice.

 

Columns

You can add one or multiple ‘VAT blocks’ in the ‘Columns’ section of the customizer that will add a column to your product overview on the invoice. You can set this block to display the taxes of a single product, the taxes of the total quantity of that product and select whether taxes should be displayed before or after discount.

You can also add a ‘Tax rate’ block that will add a column to your product overview that displays the tax rate of each product in the order.

 

Totals

You can add one or multiple ‘VAT blocks’ in the ‘Totals’ section of the customizer that will add an extra tax line to the totals on your invoice. You can set this block to display the combined tax, the product tax or the shipping tax. You will also have the choice to display the tax percentage and the tax base/subtotal.

 

 

If taxes are missing in the invoice, this is an indication your taxes in WooCommerce may not be configured correctly. The best way to check if you have configured your WooCommerce tax settings correctly is to check the order details. When configured correctly, WooCommerce should calculate product and shipping taxes and display them in the order details like this:

If taxes are not shown like this on your orders (and invoices) please check your WooCommerce tax settings. Here is a guide to setting up WooCommerce taxes in the correct way: Setting up taxes in WooCommerce
