Apologies - my German is non existant!

Webshopapps have developed an extension for a client in Sweden which calculates tax(VAT) on shipping & handling, dependent on the tax rate of the contents in the cart. I’m looking to add algorithms of calculation to cover the tax rules for other EU countries. I would really appreciate some feedback on requirements to meet the needs of German VAT calculations, so I can bring this to market in some useful way for others.

For example:
*VAT on shipping calculated against the highest VAT rate in the cart
*Calculated using the rate applied to the largest value of items of a tax class in the cart
etc.

You can email with any requirements or repost on this forum.

Did you ever finish the extension?

Here in Finland the shipping fee’s VAT should be calculated by the ratio of the products bought.

So let’s say Product A has VAT 23% and Product B has VAT 9%

Customer makes the following purchase:
Product A 40 eur, incl VAT 23%
Product B 60 eur, incl VAT 9%
Shipping fee 10 eur incl VAT

Shipping fee’s VAT should be calculated like this:
4 eur of the shipping fee with VAT 23% 0,75 eur
6 eur of the shipping fee with VAT 9% 0,50 eur
Shipping fee’s total VAT 0,75 + 0,50 = 1,25 eur

I don’t know if this is how it goes in other EU countries, but this should apply here in Finland. At least this is how I understand this thing.
