Webshop with different currency and VAT
we have an established webshop with CHF as currency and 7.6% vat for switzerland. Now we would like to expand the shop for germany and mybe in future for other countries.
What is the easiest and fastest way to establish a new webshop with different currency and different VAT.
It's easier to manage different currency and VAT in the same shop or it's easier to establish a new shop with a separate price/product catalog and reference customer?
Thank you very much in advance

Kapil is correct in every respect. One small detail. To make the selection of Web Shop for different countries inconspicuos or transparent to the end user, the web sites normally provide a feature to select the geographical region graphically - for example by way of clicking a map. Some web sites also do it requesting the user to pick a Locale (Country + Language combination - for example CA-FR or FR-FR) which in turn will give us an idea of the country and the language. Once we know this, the right Shop-ID is know and usually, this is added as a URL parameter.
