# Display results from a form not showing

I have a form with one input (profit)

I also have calculations that work out how much tax to pay and calculates ni contributions

this form works ok except for one small problem.

Example if you input 60000 into the input box and submit the results should echo

Estimated Tax = £11500
Class 2 National Insurance = £159.00
Class 4 National Insurance Low Rate = £3645.00
Class 4 National Insurance High Rate = £200.00

At the moment it shows

Estimated Tax = £11500
Class 2 National Insurance = £159.00

Class 4 National Insurance High Rate = £200.00

it does not show Class 4 National Insurance Low Rate = £3645.00

also how do i then add the totals up to display a grand total for example

Estimated Tax = £11500
Class 2 National Insurance = £159.00
Class 4 National Insurance Low Rate = £3645.00
Class 4 National Insurance High Rate = £200.00

Grand Total = £15504

here is the form action page …

Thanks

This would definitely benefit with a switch statement and maybe an array. It would simplify things and might solve your problem?

Some of the Class 4 stuff has some logic issues. I think I know what you were going for, but I didn’t want to guess and confuse you. The below is a simplification of your code. Hopefully you can adjust it to meet your needs.

Remember whenever you have code that you seem to be repeating or incrementally changing, chances are there is a better way to write it.

``````<?php

if( !isset( \$_POST['profit']) ){
die( 'No Profit Provided');
}

\$profit = (int) \$_POST['profit'];

\$class2_amt = (\$profit < 6475)? 0 : 159;

\$class4_amt = 0;
\$class4_msg = '';
if( \$profit > 9500 && \$profit <= 50000) { // Low
\$class4_amt = (int)(((\$profit - 9500) / 100) * 9);
\$class4_msg = ' Low Rate';
}else{ // High
\$class4_amt = (int)(((\$profit - 50000) / 100) * 2);
\$class4_msg = ' High Rate';
}

\$estimatedTax = 0; // Although this should be set below, best practices is to set it anyways.

if( \$profit < 12500) {
\$estimatedTax = 0;
}else if ( \$profit < 50000){
\$estimatedTax = (( \$profit - 12500 ) / 100) * 20;

Cheers

Thank you so much for taking time to re write this code and explain, its exactly what i was looking for. As a complete novice i can see how it works and learn from it. I appreciate your time and effort and advice and thank you for being patient as in the past i have had negative comments but he only way to learn is from your mistakes. Much respect.

i have tried this and its perfect however the grand total is not echoing on the page ? i will have a go at this see if i can learn and fix it
