Hi Ingo,

Thank you for your suggestion, unfortunately I already had that set for the facility the POS
is connected to. I have set it for the other facilities as well, but that did not work out.

I have messed around with the code to get it to work and ended up with something that seems
to work. However, if I set 'show pricies including taxes' to my store it adds the tax twice
to the due-amount and total (though the sales tax is correct). So it does not feel right yet.
I have something like this:

Total: 1 euro
Tax: 0,21 euro
Total: 1,42 euro

Kind regards,

    Hello Frank,
    in order to have WebPOS calculate the tax you have to add the SHIPPING_ORIG_LOCATION to
the facility.
    1.) Add contact mech to facility
    2.) Add FacilityContactMechPurpose
    <FacilityContactMechPurpose facilityId="yourFacilityId" contactMechId="yourContactMechId"
    It will then calculate the tax, as the SHIP_ORIG_LOCATION is used for tax calculation
in WebPOS. There is still an issue adding the tax to the "Total Due". As I am currently working
on getting the WebPOS ready for Austria I am working on a fix right now. 
    Best regards,

    Betreff: Webpos and sales tax
    Hi there,
    I’m having trouble with the WebPOS. I noticed the latest update of Ofbiz had some improvements
in this module, but still a lot is missing. One of the most important things I can’t seem
to get working is the sales tax. For example, I have a product of 18.182 euro’s, 22 euro
incl. sales tax. It now shows:
      *   Total: 22.00
      *   Total VAT: 0.00
      *   Total: 22.00
      *   To be paid: 18.182
    So the total amount is correct. The amount to be paid suddenly does not include the sales
tax. Furthermore, the sales tax shows 0 euro. VAT does work outside the POS (in order management),
it just doesn’t work in the POS. When I enter an amount paid by cash or whatever payment
method, it expects me to enter 18.182 instead of the 22.00 euro’s the customer needs to
    I dived into the code but can’t seem to find it. I ended up in applications/order/src/main/java/org/apache/ofbiz/order/order/OrderReadHelper.java
where I found the method getOrderTaxByTaxAuthGeoAndParty() which bases the sales tax on the
tax authority. So my feeling is that in a webpos session the right tax authority is not activated.
The POS terminal I have chosen is connected to a facility that does have the right tax authority.
I’m not sure if there is any other setting that could cause this?
    Kind regards,
