We are implementing support for global tax. You will be able to configure tax rates for different countries and provinces (applicable for Canada, Australia etc.). The tax will be calculated and applied based on the tax rates you've configured for the specific location.
Just my thoughts. Love where you are going with it though =)
I'm also in BC Canada.
In my case I sell digital products so I don't actually need to add PST...just the GST of 5%.
So far this new tax system you are working on looks great!
When you configure tax, you will have flexibility to set all PST tax rates to "Zero". So, only GST tax will be added to the invoices. You will be able to configure province tax anytime later.
How do you want the tax for the provinces that has HST to be handled? Your inputs will help us design this better.
Also we will be sharing mock-ups for adding the country tax soon. We'd like to hear more suggestions.
Thanks Casimir. :)
The tax line items will be printed individually in invoice. If it is HST it will be printed as a single line item.
We will have label option for federal tax (GST) so you can define how it should be printed on invoice.
Would all the products that you sell have similar tax type or do you have product groupings that have different types of taxes applicable in your business? Trying to understand how different types of products will be managed within ChargeBee and how taxes can be configured specific to those, if required. Thanks.
Your inputs are very helpful.
We understand the scenario of having products with different type of taxes. We will think through this specific use case and try to find out a better solution. BTW, we are adding a check-box at product level to specify if the product is taxable (as a first step).
We already have the placeholder on invoice to show the companies tax id number. We will find out a way to show multiple tax id numbers on invoice and get back to you.
Thanks again for all the fantastic inputs. :)
We will be providing custom date filtering on all reports, so that should definitely address this need. It is a great input to know the periodicity of the tax items. Will take it up.
I will let Vaibhav comment on the timelines. He is actively working on developing this.
Thanks. Have a wonderful day.
We are working on this feature and now doubling up effort (people & effort!) to get this out soon hopefully within the end of the month. Apologies for the delay. Just trying to think through scenarios and get it right. We appreciate your help in inputs and the encouragement to know that you are waiting to get your hands to it. :)
In the next 3 weeks we will circle back to setup your configuration and test it out thoroughly while completing our testing. Hopefully that will also help accelerate all validations to ensure a smooth roll out.
We will co-ordinate with you to get your invoices also imported for your reporting (you mentioned that in another email and will respond to that separately).
Thank you and have a wonderful day.
Just signed up for ChargeBee and this is the one thing I couldn't figure out how to do. How far away is this feature? I don't want to have to mess around with add-ons to do tax.
@Mike We got a bit sidetracked with other major tasks the past couple of weeks, but we'll resume working on getting this out soon.
