Configuring taxes
Learn how to properly configure taxes on items and shipping in Global Commerce.
Digital River automatically calculates taxes for you. All you have to do is tell us whether taxes are included or not included in your price list and shipping cost.
How taxes should be displayed to a customer during the shopping experience depends on the country.

Setting the price list to tax inclusive or exclusive

Use the Prices Include Value Added Tax (VAT) dropdown list in Global Commerce to set a price list to tax inclusive (Yes) or tax exclusive (No). If you are using the landed costs feature, you must set Prices Include value Added Tax (VAT) to No.
You need the Pricing Manager role to perform this task.

Setting the shipping cost to tax inclusive or exclusive

Shipping taxes are automatically calculated.
If you toggle Input Tax-Inclusive Shipping to ON in Global Commerce, will handle input shipping costs based on the tax-inclusive flag of the price list. When the toggle is ON, it will refer to the configured price list as follows:
    If the price list is tax inclusive, then the shipping and handling fee (shippingAndHandling) is tax inclusive.
    If the price list is tax exclusive, then the shipping and handling fee is tax exclusive.
When the toggle is OFF, the shipping and handling fee will always be tax exclusive.
