What is the best way to have different taxes in different websites for one country?


Website 1:

  • Tax Rate for Germany -> 19%
  • Tax Rate for Austria -> 20%

Website 2:

  • Tax Rate for Germany -> 19%
  • Tax Rate for Austria -> 19%

The only way I see is to create a new product tax class for website 2. I would then add a tax rule with a tax rate of 19% for Austria and set the new product tax class to all products of website 2.

Is this the correct way or are there any other possibilites?

  • Is your issue solved?

I think I found the solution.

I also have to set in system -> sales -> shipping settings -> origin country to the other country. Its not enought to change the Default Tax Destination Calculation Country and define the tax rules.

  • The problem is that there are more countries available on every website, not only Austria. When I change the origin country, the taxes for the other countries would be incorrect.
