Brexit VAT rules for Children's clothing store

Brexit VAT rules for Children's clothing store

Hello!

My store sells children's clothing that should be 0% VAT as per new Brexit regulations, but it's not limited to this, some products we sell are miscellaneous, like sunglasses and bags that are 20% VAT. Due to Brexit we will have to do some changes to our product taxation.

The changes after 31st of December are:

  • A cart that is >135 pounds will always be sold with 0% tax (this is easy to implement, just add a checkout/cart rule that if the cart is >135, then tax = 0%)
  • A cart that is <135 pounds has to be sold with 20% tax (this is the one I need assistance with)

The issue is, I'm not sure what is the most logical way of implementing this, for example if a customer adds some products that are 0% and some that are 20% VAT, and the cart is <135 pounds, does taxation apply to all of the cart, ignoring the 0%?

 

How are you dealing with this? Any suggestions or resolutions are welcome!

Thanks!

Apply cart rule

default tax = 0%;

if($total < 135)

{

     if($category in (23,45,56)) <===  Mention categories for tax 20%

    {

                 tax = 20%;

   }

}

 

use above nested cart rules your problem will be solved , I have not given cart rule syntax here but just shared logic with you, hope it will help you.

There is a lot of dealing between Europe and the United Kingdom, which won't replace overnight. If there is no trade deal, it could mean higher prices in United Kingdom shops. There could also be loitering as lorries bringing products would need even more border checks. Brexit supporters say leaving Europe will give the United Kingdom more freedom to strike trade give out around the world.
