Multi-tax rate bands

sell mixed rate VAT product combinations ShopIntegrator’s Tax Manager now allows you to add additional tax bands for each country and region, allowing merchants to sell mixed packs containing products with different tax rates.

Each product in the Product Manager may now be assigned a specific tax rate band other than the default tax band, so you can handle multiple tax rates within the same country, US State or Canadian Province.

For example, a merchant in the UK who sells a product containing a book and multi-media CD/DVD needs to apportion different VAT rates to each item in respect of each items price contribution to the total cost. Reference: HM Revenue & Customs : Rates of VAT on different goods and services

A book with a 0% VAT rate and a CD/DVD having standard 20% VAT rate when sold together as a product combination might costing £100, with the book part costing £90 and the CD part costing £10, resulting in a 2% VAT rate chargable on the product combination.

  • 20% VAT for CD which is 1/10th the total cost
  • 0% VAT for book which is 9/10th the total cost
  • Effective VAT rate for product combination is 2% = (20% x 1/10) + (0% x 9/10)
