Hi Torvald,

In Argentina we have different tax rates for VAT. Therefore we have multiple taxes in Odoo, on for each percentage. For instance, we have three different rates: 10.5%, 21% and 27% (no wonder this country is going to the dogs). Therefore we have three taxes defined in Odoo:

IVA (spanish translation for VAT) 10.5%
IVA 21%
IVA 27%

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...
