VAT Calculation in 1.4.2 - Has This Scenario Been Fixed?
Yeah, decent change that with the 20% rate, it’s far less of an issue. But the fundamental issue would still exist and with 3 VAT rate changes in just over 2 years, I wouldn’t rely on a “lucky” 20% rate sorting this out forever.
And yes, again only an issue on larger quantities so mainly issue for B2B but they tend to have the pickier, accounting-aware customers too.
So it would be nice if they sorted it out at the core, it can’t be that difficult to add in a US/EU switch, just a little if statement after all.
Thanks for looking in to it and acknowledging the issue. These little bugs are often a case of “Am I going nuts or is it real what I’m seeing” and then after banging your head and a calculator for a while, it’s reassuring if someone else concurs!
