HST (Canada)

HST stands for Harmonized Sales Tax and is the emerging tax standard for Canadian Provinces.

HST Setup

From the Admin Menu in your DNN portal, select RazorCart admin console:
You will be taken to the dashboard of your store. 
Select the Tax tab under Store setup on the left hand side.
Once you are in the tax settings, you will see the following screen. Select "HST" from the radiobutton list.
When you select HST as the tax option in your store the cart uses the tax table to look up the province and get the tax rate. HST is only charged for customers in your home province.
The tax method selected requires Tax Table to be configured. To manage Tax Tables, see the Tax Table KB article.

HST Calculation and Display for Goods sold from HST Province

Subtotal = Total of all the items in the cart: (unit cost) x (quantity)
S&H = Shipping & Handling
HST = (Subtotal + S&H) x HST rate (found in the tax table for the province)
Note: Product prices should be entered exclusive of tax – meaning tax is not included in the product price when entering products in the product setup screen.
You now have all of the tools you need to configure HST in your store! If you have any questions, please Contact Us.
