Vat Tax

Postby Mark Bresky » Wed Dec 15, 2004 2:34 pm

We are starting to sell overseas (EMEA) and need to charge VAT taxes for any
shipments for Denmark.

The Shopsite "Help" states that VAT is not supported at this time.

Any suggestions on work-arounds? We would like the customer to see the VAT
amount in the shopping cart before they submit the order.

What taxing method are you using, shopper selected or Zipcode?

If you are using shopper selected just create and option that has
Denmark and give it the VAT rate.

If Zip code you could create a Zipcode entry for Denmark and put in
D??????, d??????? and instruct the customer to enter either there
zipcode if in the US or enter "Denmark" if they are ordering from
Denmark. The code with the ? needs to match the number of characters
that they would enter so if they would put it in in Danish you would
need to put in the appropriate number of ? characters. Note that the
Zipcode field will display on the receipt so they may have 2 "Denmark"s
appear on the receipt.

Most countries in the world have some type of postal code so if you know
the range of numbers used in Denmark you could also set that up in the
Zipcode tax table. It may conflict with a range of US zip numbers so if
you charge tax in the US state where they over lap you might have a
problem using this method.

The number of question marks must match the number of characters the
shopper puts in the zipcode field. So Deutschland wouldn't match
D?????? or d?????? it would require D?????????? or d??????????.

You could spell out the entire name in the zipcode matching string if
you wanted. I was just trying to make it so that if they entered the
name in upper or lower case it would match. If you had the matching
string set to Denmark and someone entered DENMARK or denmark or dEnMaRk
etc. it wouldn't match.
