Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-10679) Regarding national laws when applying taxes on shipping costs
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2020 14:52:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10679?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=17056021#comment-17056021

Pierre Smits commented on OFBIZ-10679:

It seems to me that this ticket warrants a higher priority than currently one just above trivial.
Correctly calculating the taxation is critical for parties considering to incorporate the
solution in their business operations or parties already having adopted it.

IMO, we should treat this as a bug, not as an improvement, because tax calculation and the
transactions resulting from that are not done in accordance to national laws and/or regulations.

I also suggest to have the solution, if it can be realised in a reasonable timeframe, to have
it back ported to the branch that delivers the next release shortly thereafter.

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.
