4. Calculating taxes


When using the CoreBundle (i.e: full stack Sylius framework), the taxes are already calculated at each cart change. It is implemented by the TaxationProcessor class, which is called by the OrderTaxationListener.

In order to calculate tax amount for given taxable, we need to find out the applicable tax rate. The tax rate resolver service is available under sylius.tax_rate_resolver id, while the delegating tax calculator is accessible via sylius.tax_calculator name.

4.1. Resolving rate and using calculator


namespace Acme\ShopBundle\Taxation;

use Acme\ShopBundle\Entity\Order\Order;
use Sylius\Component\Taxation\Calculator\CalculatorInterface;
use Sylius\Component\Taxation\Resolver\TaxRateResolverInterface;

class TaxApplicator
    private $calculator;
    private $taxRateResolver;

    public function __construct(
        CalculatorInterface $calculator,
        TaxRateResolverInterface $taxRateResolver
        $this->calculator = $calculator;
        $this->taxRateResolver = $taxRateResolver;


    public function applyTaxes(Order $order)
        $tax = 0;

        foreach ($order->getItems() as $item) {
            $taxable = $item->getVariant();
            $rate = $this->taxRateResolver->resolve($taxable);

            if (null === $rate) {
                continue; // Skip this item, there is no matching tax rate.

            $tax += $this->calculator->calculate($item->getTotal(), $rate);

        $order->setTaxTotal($tax); // Set the calculated taxes.
