Our website needs to show prices excluding UK VAT at 17.5% because we have a worldwide customer base.

I have looked at the GC API specification, and it appears that a list of countries for which tax should be charged, and the rate which should be charged needs to be passed by the GC payment module through the GC. GC then works out whether or not the VAT should be charged depending on the customer's address.

Does the GC module pass this information? - if so, how do I configure it in VM? If not, how can the problem be solved?

Thanks,
Richard

Richard the GC module uses the tax table in virtuemart. So if you want a country to have VAT make sure they are in the tax table. To make sure a country does not have VAT you can leave them out or create an entry for 0.0% tax.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I specified a VM tax rate for the UK - this works correctly when I checkout with my UK GC sandbox account - tax is added.

I haven't specified a VM tax rate for the US - this works correctly when I checkout with my US GC sandbox account - no tax is added.

I specified a tax rate for France - this doesn't work correctly when I checkout with my French GC sandbox account - no tax is added when it should be because I've specified a rate for France.

I would be grateful for any ideas.
