New European VAT regulation¶
Lino is so cool! It seems that I solved #42 (New European VAT regulation) within a few hours! Okay there might be some details which might require attention when first users start to actually use it ;-) But all in all I am proud. When I read how a taxation change took 4 developers a week to handle, I got afraid and decided that it might be time to start working on this ticket. But unlike the developers at PA I have over 20 years of experience with handling VAT in an accounting software, so these topics were not new to me. Everything went as planned:
Added the new model
lino.modlib.vat.models.VatRate(Change in database structure).
New fixture with the rates I know
Moved documentation from
En passant I noticed that
hide_sumswas being ignored by
Installed latest development version on lino-framework.org. And another good
news: It seems that
initdb now works also on InnoDB because
disable_constraint_checking(). So the problem described
in Lino and the InnoDB engine has gone.
