How can I correctly configure tax calculation within europe (TIN)?

if I buy from a supplied in another EU country which has a valid TIN number, no taxes should be calculated. If I buy (the same producT) from a supplied within the same country, that country's tax should be applied.

how can I configure this, so the end-user must not swap taxes manually for each purchase-order-line?

thanks! regards, Tilli


Hi Tilli,

You can use one of the inbuilt facility to achieve this automatically. We can achieve as your goal using Fiscal Position.

We need to defin fiscal position based on country and in that we can define swapping of the tax as well as swapping of the accounts.

thank you! that did it! do you by chance know which table this is in the database so I can fix all current EU partners?
