Hi Torvald,

we chose the 'new tax' approach in this module: It creates the new taxes and fiscal position tax mappings beforehand, and it allows you to reset the defaults for purchase and sale at separate times (as sales switches on the date, while you may be processing mainly old tax purchases in the first couple of days afterwards). It does not replace taxes on unconfirmed orders or quotations so users still need to intervene manually but it does allow you to prepare your databases *before* the 1st of January. It probably needs some coding to modernize it and make it work Odoo 8.0.
