German VAT Update

As of midnight tonight, Germany is reducing their VAT rates from 19% to 16% and 7% to 5% on the reduced rate. That will be in effect until the end of December as an economic relief measure. If you're selling to German customers, you may need to take some action.

Sterc's Extras will be free from August 1st

Critical Commerce update for EU VAT users

If you sell to customers in the European Union, there's a good chance you've set that up with the built-in EU VAT module.

To avoid issues, you need to update Commerce to 1.1.4 or 1.0.4 right away.
