Export Country VAT Rate Basis


If you have to charge VAT to an export customer, would the VAT rate (held in System / Countries / Tax information) be applied at checkout based on the VAT rate for the Country the customer resides in or on the VAT rate of the Country the order is being despatched to?
Hopefully the latter and if it has any bearing we will be using a custom shipping script.

Thanks, Richard

Re: Export Country VAT Rate Basis

The VAT rate is for the country the order is being dispatched to. The custom shipping script is going to do it's calculations based on ex-VAT totals to eliminate any issues there.  If you have the dispatch country set up to charge VAT on shipping, the correct rate will be applied to your shipping charge (which should be calculated as ex-VAT).
