Different VAT tax for each product variant

Hi @Nick 

 

yes, those apps are great for customer to dont have to pay EU- TAX, but we are looking to "add" and extra tax, not to remove it.

 

This is a requirement in Spain ( it is called "recargo de equivalencia") and most of B2B will need it, and so far, there is not a solution for this.

 

It will definitely boost the B2B here if available.

thanks

Daniel

Ahhh ok. Thanks for adding more context to this @Daniel-Triciclo

 

I took another look in the app store and found an app which might be able to work for you here. I hope it does at least. It's called Dual Price Display PRO and mentions that it allows you to set the tax rates in a percentage. I'm wondering if this will do what you need it to.

thanks @Nick ,

 

I have check that app, and it only helps to display different taxes ( which you match with your tax settings)

 

what we are looking for is something more complex, as it does require to modify the taxes by group of customers.

 

Here it does explain a little bit more in detail the scenario, maybe something you can share with your tax team:

 

PS: the tax is 5.2% not 5.4% as I wrote before, and it might vary depending on the base of the main tax.

 

thanks for your help

Daniel

Hi Adrian, were you able to find a solution for your problem eventually? I have the exact same problem: I want different taxes on different variants of the same product. Is there a useful app! Thanks in advance!

@Soufeina, no. I was unable to find a solution. Unfortunately I had to give up on shopify.

I have the same problem too.

 

I need some of my product variants to have a lower tax, but not all the product variants...

Hi @acero_10,

 

I spoke to our higher-level support team about this. You cannot do a different VAT for each variant. You can only charge different tax rates by doing overrides which require you to override a collection. Since you have to put the whole product in a collection, and not just a variant, it’s not possible to override the rate for just one variant.

 

Because of that, the best workaround is creating each variant as its own separate product here.

Hello Adrian,

 

I read through this thread and we're facing the same issue with implementing tax overrides to specific variants of our products.

 

Were you able to find a solution to this? Would really appreciate if you could share it here.

 

Thank you.

This is to be a deal-breaking issues that many sellers are facing. 

It becomes increasingly important when using the charge VAT on digital goods option.

I strongly believe there should at least be a verification at checkout to ensure that VAT is only applied to products that are not listed as physical products in order to avoid any legal / tax collection issues.

We built an entire store with the "parent product with two variants: one digital, one physical" structure (because having duplicates everywhere + translations would be un-manageable). We based our development on the fact that Shopify had a tool to charge VAT on digital goods and are now facing a problem because the "charge VAT on digital goods" doesn't check if the product is indeed digital or not. It is misleading and I would add it to the bug fix list (not a feature request since there is already a feature... it's just not working as it should). 

Sellers outside EU should not collect VAT on physical products. It would (I think) be quite easy to add a hidden condition to ensure the option behaves like its label says: "charge VAT on DIGITAL goods" (not just any good in a given category).
