Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-10679) Regarding national laws when applying taxes on shipping costs
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2020 14:17:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10679?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=17055989#comment-17055989

Benjamin Jugl commented on OFBIZ-10679:

My ticket at that time included a way to deal with the taxes on shipping costs. The shipping
costs for an item are based on the taxes that apply to the item. So if there is an item with
9% tax, the same percentage is applied to the shipping costs. This has already been implemented.
But for the case that several items are shipped with mixed tax rates, I have only introduced
the apparently most common method for the time being, namely calculating the shipping tax
weighted by price and tax rate of each item. But the calculation of the tax on shipping costs
is not uniform in all countries, states and even companies. Some companies simplify the procedure
and simply apply the highest rate of the items shipped to the shipping costs. Some countries
apply a fixed rate to the shipping costs. Others do not tax them at all. It should be configurable,
depending on the ProductStore and tax authority, how shipping tax is handled.

> As mentioned in [#OFBIZ-4160] there are different ways to approach tax-calculation on
> While some countries (like the Netherlands) have a fixed price for this, others calculate
the delivery just like the delivered good (or a weighted version, if multiple taxrates are
applied to the shipping).
> As I stated:
> {quote}[..]it is advisable to introduce a new ProductCategory "TAX_SHIPPING". This could
be administered through TAX_AUTHORITY_RATE_PRODUCT for individual tax authorities.  Then
there could be a condition before my newly implemented logic, to use this tax rate, if it
is found, and if it is not, my logic is executed.
