Tax handling depending on country or VAT ID

Post by boettner » 22 Oct 2015, 14:42

Hi,

I have to post a best practice question again. In some cases it´s necessary to calculate baskets without or with different tax rates.

Examples for shop owners in Germany are:
  • selling to Switzerland
  • selling to foreign EU customers having a VAT ID

So this would include checks for address and customer properties.

What is best used here, should this be implemented via Plug-in? And which objects and methods are involved here? Can you please give me a short hint (again) where to start?

Thanks
Robert.

Yes, a basket plugin can handle this and it should be active after the customers entered their addresses ($basket->getAddress()) so you know their country and their VAT ID. Based on this, you should be able to recalculate the prices.

Hi Robert

I've already written such a plug-in and created an extension which offers VAT ID checks as well.
If you are interested, drop me a private message.

I know it's a long shot, but do you still have this plugin?

I licensed it from Norbert back then and he charges a fee for it. So he should answer your question.
