Tax on shipping to match products

Hi, I've read through the help pages on taxes, but I can't find what I need to keep me compliant with UK tax law... I should be charging VAT on shipping, only when the products being purchased are subject to VAT. So if someone buys yarn from my online shop I should be charging 20% VAT on shipping because yarn is VATable at 20%. However, if someone buys a book from me, I shouldn't be charg...

How to display prices including VAT on Facebook?

The integration with Facebook is pretty neat. However it shows prices excluding VAT, which is illegal in certain parts of the world.   How can I configure it in such way that the price includes VAT. If this means we have to write stuff in liquid or javascript, that's fine. Is it possible?
