-quote Ryan - see that what you're requesting (calculating VAT per product) is exactly the kind of thing I'm saying core should make possible. -quote.
My question was more or less a "trick" question. VAT IS NOT CALCULATED PER PRODUCT/SERVICE!!!!!! Sorry to shout, but this rule numero uno. This is EXACTLY what caused some companies to loose millions. I don't care how wonderful Szeged was. Coders know zilch about tax laws. I care about what the Internal Revenues of the EU countries are demanding. If that is "offending" to you, you're very immature. This is no kiddies game!
You're not dealing with it, not by a long shot. So will you take me seriously or make a mockery of yourself in the eyes of anyone who has a reasonable amount of knowledge about European VAT laws. Be honest now... do you??? Most of us Europeans spend a lifetime learning about them. SO aren't you being arrogant denying the complexity of the problem?
