Shipping cost corresponding to VAT rates

Hi Bas,

to handle the shipping costs in an absolute correct manner, the costs for shipping tax have to stick (german law) with the products tax (!). Maybe this is a feature for future development and affects some more countries?

To give an example:
You have two products in your basket:
1 Product for 10 EUR with 19% Vat and
1 Product for 20 EUR with 7% Vat.

The tax for the shipping costs, which have to be sticked to the products tax rates, would be in this case 7%, as the costs for the lower taxed product (20 Euro, 7%) has a higher total amount.

If the first product with 19% tax rate have had a total price of 30 Euro, the shipping costs tax would be 19% too, as it is the product with the higher total amount.

I found a thread about this issue in the xt commerce forum (german only):

Thanks a lot for having a look into this subject
best regards
