I installed the BYZ VAT plugin over a year ago, and got it successfully displaying VAT, but i updated the VAT rate today to 20% for the UK, and although it calculates it correctly in the checkout, the BYZ part that displays the VAT separately on the product listings is still showing it at the old rate of 17.5%.

I presumed that the BYZ plugin pulled the data from the countries database which is where VPASP gets it from. Am I wrong?

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Many thanks

Hi,

Yes; you'd also need to change this config option in the setup tab (ie the database-held configuration values) :
xtaxeurate

That should fix it. If it doesn't, then let us know.

Some places get the rate from the config option, some from the countries table; our tax addon takes it from the config option (xtaxeurate).

Thanks Simon

For reasons unknown, I don't have the xtaxeurate field. Why would this be?

It's hidden in 6.5 onwards; it's no longer used by generic vpasp, although it is still in the database as a config option.
vpasp now uses per-country/state rates rather than the xtaxeurate config value.
The way to unhide it (so you can tweak/view it) is to go to edit-tables in admin, choose the configuration table, then search on fieldname containing tax, then edit the relevant option and set the showfield value to Yes.
Then you'll be able to view/edit it.
For vpasp 6.5 onwards, it's only used by our addon, not by generic vpasp.

As far as I know, the tax rate of different countries is irrelevant for eu merchants; it's only the merchant's own country's tax rate that'd be used; it doesn't matter where the customer comes from. (then, when ordering, the system will decide whether or not vat is payable for the customer, depending on their country and their vat-number; the same rate's used regardless, ie it'll either use a given rate, or it won't apply any tax; it wouldn't use different rates for different customer countries for eu merchants; at least that's how I'd expect it to work; eg our customers from france wouldn't pay french tax rates when buying from the uk; they'd pay uk vat rates)
