Exclude VAT based on VAT-ID

Hi,

I’m using the shop add-on and I’m going to sell to both individuals and corporations. Since my business is in the EU, I’ll only charge VAT for individuals from a EU country. For corporations in EU, is there a way to exclude VAT based on the customer adding a valid VAT-ID?

To explain things better. I’m not looking to validate a VAT. I’m looking for a way to remove/change VAT/tax group in the cart, much like I can programmatically apply a discount code. Something like perch_shop_set_tax_group('slug');

You can assign a taxID to a customer, but you can remove tax based on it unless the ID has been validated (otherwise anyone could enter anything and you'd undercharge). You need Shop Assistant in order to do that, but unfortunately that's not yet available to the general public.

Thanks Drew. I totally missed Shop Assistant.
