In the case of deliveries from companies to companies within the EU, the VAT of the country of delivery is not calculated under certain conditions. When these conditions apply is explained e.g. on the website of the WKO: Link to WKO
Odoo already offers a basic configuration for fiscal regulations (and thus also for IG deliveries) with its localisation modules (which is also available for Austria, among others), but this still has to be adapted to the respective company. In the following blog post, we will go into the configuration options in Odoo v14.
Configuration of the tax assignment
The tax allocations can be defined via the finance module => Configuration => Tax allocation. A tax allocation specifies under which circumstances the tax deposited in the product by default will be changed:
Important: In particular, the reference to the application of the tax regulations within the scope of the IG delivery (e.g. intra-community delivery, tax-exempt according to Ar. 6 para. 1 UStG), which is necessary on the invoice, is not set by Odoo by default. The text must be set manually below the tax assignments (see screenshot below).
The corresponding tax assignment is applied automatically depending on the country and the availability of a UID number if configured correctly, but it can also be changed manually in the partner master (Contacts => Sales/Purchases => Tax Assignment) or in an individual sales order.
