VAT

VAT works differently from taxes. While taxes add to the final price, VAT does not modify the total amount. Instead, it will deduct the percentage from all the line items and display it at the end of the pricing table.

VAT Percentage The percentage of the VAT tax.
VAT Name The name of the VAT tax that will appear in the pricing table.
Display Only Only display the VAT value in the pricing table without subtracting it from the line items.

Multiple VAT Rates

You can set a default VAT rate in the Settings page, which can then be overwritten for each form product in the Form Editor. The “Custom VAT” field is only visible if VAT is enabled in the Settings page.
