Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Add tax for a business and no tax for a consumer

  • Resolved Themedutch


    Hi all,
    Is there a way to add tax for a business and for the same product no tax if it’s a consumer.

    For example, when they fill in field Company name it will add tax. And if the company field is empty it will not add tax.

    Thanks Mike

    It’s not quite that simple in the EU (which is what I’m assuming you’re asking about, given your username). If you don’t charge VAT at times when you’re supposed to, then you need to have the validated VAT number of the company in question.

    Hi Hannah,

    Yeah I’m from The Netherlands but this is a specific case. I have a client with a storage box rental service. The thing that makes it complicated is that consumers are free from tax but companies have to pay 21% tax.

    I found this not completely what we need but similar:

    If I can use the Company name field that would be great. So when a company name is added it will add tax.

    I hope this makes sense

    Out of the box, WooCommerce doesn’t provide any functionality for that type of setup – nor am I aware of any plugins/extensions that would help with that.

    Practically this means that you’d likely need to have that custom developed for you. Given the intricacies of the code involved, I recommend getting in touch with a web developer or one of our friends at
