BtoB: proper EU VAT rules extension virtual goods
Hi, for EU B2B virtual goods a lot of tweaks are necessary to use woocommerce or woocommerce subscribtion when selling also to B2C
When making a extension with all proper tax classes (now everyone has to find out the wheel again, search all EU iso codes ( the right formated ones) makes the tax classses buy the extension http://docs.woothemes.com/document/eu-vat-number-2/ to collect and verify the right VAT, and the modify the checkout form.
Company / 'shop base country' / valid VAT= add 'shop base country'% VAT
Company / EU but not 'shop base country'/ valid VAT= don't add 'shop base country'% VAT
Individual / EU = add 'shop base country'% VAT
Individual / outside EU = no VAT
The checkout form should first ask if the shopper is an individual or company and only show the vat field to a company.
I have to make now a product variable with different tax rule to make this happen right now to show the right tax rule?

There is a cloud service called AvaTax which can handle these VAT rules for you automatically. I wrote a plugin to make the service work in WooCommerce. You can get it here: http://www.adipietro.com/product/taxnow-for-woocommerce/
