Hi,

I currently have Magento implemented and i’m looking at becoming VAT registed.
I’m UK based and have customers buying outside the UK too.
Is there a guide for setting up VAT on Magento?

Thanks

Fuzzy

I implemented the AuctionMaid Tax set up and it worked, however now 1 week later it doesnt seem to be calculating VAT and i am perplexed.
Everything is the same.

I did this by selecting every EU country (where UK VAT must be paid if you export) and adding the 15% rate.

Note:  there may be an easier way to do this and there may also be some mistakes with the countries in the file.

Attached is the upload data used:

Code,Country,County/State,Postcode/Zip,Rate,default,german
UK VAT,GB,*,*,15,,
EU VAT1,AD,*,*,15,,
EU VAT2,AT,*,*,15,,
EU VAT3,BE,*,*,15,,

Thanks for the list. Although I don’t think Norway should be on there… it isn’t part of the EU.

Thanks,
