shipping tax rate depends on tax class product

shipping tax rate depends on tax class product

 In the Netherlands the tax rates varies on what you send. 

For example

  • when you ship a product which has a reduced rate (6% VAT) your shipping tax is also 6% 
  • when you ship a product which has  a standard rate (21% VAT) your shipping rate is 21%
  • When you ship a combination of reduced and standard rate items, your shipping rate is as high as the highest rate. In this case 21%.

How can I achieve this? 

 

I know there are  other countries with similar regulations, but I can't find any solution.

Re: shipping tax rate depends on tax class product

I don't have experience here but an older post on stackexchange about this (https://magento.stackexchange.com/questions/44202/vat-over-shipping-costs-depending-on-vat-rate-of-p...), suggests that the FireGento_MageSetup extension might help.

Re: shipping tax rate depends on tax class product

It's the same thing in Sweden - By law the shipping tax should have the same tax rate as the product that you are selling. If a customer buys two products with two different tax rates then it's the highest tax rate that should be valid as a tax rate for shipping.

 

In Sweden there's 6% tax for books, 12% tax for food products and 25% for all other products and services. So if there's a BBQ shop like ours that sell grills (25% tax) but also BBQ rubs and BBQ sauces (12% tax) then it's impossible to have the correct tax rate for shipping that the law requires.
