Folks, just wondering if anyone has further knowledge on Craft Commerce's Tax Rates? I am setting up my first commerce store and the client requires that if the customer is buying from the EU, and has a valid VAT number, they then do not pay the 20% VAT.
I have my Tax Categories, Zones and Rates set up, and have checked the option to 'Don't apply this tax when the shipping address has a valid VAT ID' - however when it comes to the payment screen after putting in a VAT number in the businessTaxId input on the Shipping Address screen, it does not deduct the 20% added VAT. It does pick up the correct Tax Zone as I can see it is EU Tax that has been added, it is just not deducting when I enter a VAT ID.
Just wondering is there something else that I would need to be covering first before this works? Apologies if this is a little too vague.
I am currently running the latest version of Craft & Craft Commerce, and working from the base files that you get when you download.
Edit I have just noticed this error in the commerce.log file if it helps matters
