Perch Shop Show Product Price with VAT by default

  • Due to slight rounding errors at cart level our client requires the product prices to be entered exclusive of VAT but shown on the front end inclusive of VAT by default.

    Client only ships UK so we don't need to worry about location whilst the customer in the shop.

  • Achieved this using a perch template filter:

    Then wherever I want to show a base price plus vat:

    1. <perch:shop id="sale_price" format="#:2" filter="addVAT">

    Obviously this only applies to UK sales, but until Perch Shop adds a way to provide tax exclusive prices, but show prices with a default tax front end it will have to do.
