REST API and UK VAT Taxes and the EU

My company is trying to import taxes from Shopify via the REST API for our UK customers, but are having difficulty working out how to distinguish between UK VAT and EU VAT in the tax_lines object, as they will only be responsible for UK VAT returns.

 

We haven't been able to find any list which shows what values the tax_lines title field can contain, does this distinguish between UK VAT and EU VAT, if not is the customer_locale a valid way to distinguish between UK and EU VAT?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We are going to use the country_code from the billing_address, to distinguish between the UK and EU VAT. Anyone know if this is a bad idea?

It is not a bad idea , perhaps it is the only one... 🙂
