Hi,

I would like to set the tax option so that customers outside the UK do not get charged VAT (tax), while those in the UK do. Where do I set this?

Best regards

Christopher

Hi,

How are you today?

You can do this by: a) using PayPal Standard, b) setting up your taxes for locations in PayPal, and c) configure Event Espresso PayPal Standard settings to require shipping addresses. Paypal will use their shipping address to add the tax based on their location.

Does that help?

Hi,

We only accept payment by invoice, so I would have to control that locally in the plugin. Do you have a function for this?

Thanks

Currently, tax calculations are static, and not based on the shipping or physical address of an attendee.

Hi,

Thank you for your response. Is this something that you are adding to your development schedule as it is key with the new directives in Europe. Hence, when we are delivering digital products VAT always has to be charged, but if we are delivering physical products we only charge VAT to customers based in the same country. Very important feature for anyone based in the EU.

Best regards
