Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » EU Vat Changes – Different rates only when number entered

    Hey there – my EU clients are reporting a new regulation where all users need to be charged a flat VAT rate equal to their home countries effective rate when it’s a PERSONAL purchase.

    However, when a VAT number is entered and it’s a business purchase, they need to be VAT taxed at their home country’s effective rate.

    I’m using the EU VAT NUMBER plugin from woocommerce and trying to wrap my head around how to accomplish this.

    Has anyone implemented this or know a strategy that would work?

    I’m wondering if there is a way to trigger/filter “Calculate tax based on” during checkout to handle this.

    Hey there!

    I’m a bit confused on this:

    my EU clients are reporting a new regulation where all users need to be charged a flat VAT rate equal to their home countries effective rate when it’s a PERSONAL purchase.

    However, when a VAT number is entered and it’s a business purchase, they need to be VAT taxed at their home country’s effective rate.

    Those seem (to me at least) to be the same thing. The VAT Number extension from WooCommerce.com would remove the VAT for their country, making them tax free, upon receipt of a validated EU VAT number.

    If you have more issues with this plugin, please open a ticket with us so that we can dive deeper and provide the support your license includes.

    Hopefully that helps! Have a great one!
