Re: Accounting best practice: change VAT rateby
Torvald Baade Bringsvor, Torvald B. Bringsvor
I think Dominique has a point, to change the existing rate and make a new one for the old rate.
One point that I didn't think of before sending the original email is that this will only apply to supplier invoices. For outgoing invoices we only have the full VAT or no VAT (export). This 8/10% VAT rate is only for travel and culture which we don't sell.
Therefore I think that the OCA modules mentioned probably would be overkill for this.
Thanks everyone for your responses.

may I suggest to change the rate of the standard VAT to 10 % and create an new tax with the old rate ?A true solution would be to manage rate history and apply correct rates over periods, but Odoo doesn't seem to evolve this way.2015-12-16 13:02 GMT+01:00 Torvald Baade Bringsvor <email@example.com>:HiHere 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...Torvald Baade BringsvorBringsvor Consulting AS - Odoo (formerly OpenERP) implementation partner
