Use suppliers default VAT for purchase orders.

When processing purchase orders, the VAT code should default to the suppliers default VAT code and not that of the stock item as its the suppliers that set the VAT you arecharged depending on their registration. Currently for VAT exempt suppliers I need to change the vat for each line item.

    thanks for the comment Chloe, we prioritise new idea inclusion based on a number of factors including elements like security, technical and compliance needs. You can also see from the comment added previously that there are a wide number of factors to consider. I can't give you a timeframe at the moment but as soon as we start to investigate the idea then you'll see the status change and at that point we'll reach out to those who have voted for the idea to get more insight.

    This would need a careful re-think. If it is a EU supplier, they can provide both a services and goods, thus the VAT codes are different. Use the default but have the ability to change and split transactions between service and goods VAT codes. Stock code should never be the driving force for VAT codes.
