Re: Accounting best practice: change VAT rate

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.

Hi

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...
