Hello Torvald,

there might be other solutions, but one would be to use the OCA/fiscal-rules modules. the account_fiscal_ruke_* modules let you define rules that will apply the proper fiscal position (what will map your 8% or 10% tax) according to several parameters (and this is customizable). Among the native parameters you already have start and end date for the rule validity, see:

Hope this helps.

Here in Norway we'll have a change in one of the VAT rates from January 1st, from 8% to 10%. The change is supposed to be applied for goods delivered after January 1st.

So what would the best way be to handle this? It seems to me that a new VAT rate has to be created for the 10% so that the accountants can choose themselves when sending invoices if an invoice should have 8% or 10%. And also when receiving supplier invoices we need to be able to handle both for a period.

Does this seem reasonable or is there a better way? I mean I'll probably have to test the VAT report to ensure that everything runs smoothly...
