The countries-view brings you an overview of all countries and the associated VAT requirements.
At the left side (1) you see the countries and a filter option at the top.
At the right side (2) you see the configuration for each country.
|Required||Set to yes if this country requires tax calculation|
|Force||Set to yes to force the VAT even if no VAT is set for this product.|
After the standard VAT, all defined VAT-classes will be appended, so you can define multiple VAT-Rates for each country. The name ("Reduced 1" in this example) is the name ob the defined VAT-class at the VAT-classes-view.
