How does VAT conversion work on a currency invoice for OSS (formerly MOSS)
Invoices in other currencies may include VAT rates from different European countries. This will happen, for example, when you sell digital products and your customers are natural persons from other European countries. It would be burdensome to register in each country to properly settle VAT for such transactions. For this reason, the OSS (MOSS) procedure has been introduced in the European Union so that it easier to sell your products and process such orders.
A few days ago I wrote an article focusing on, how to issue an invoice in the EU using WooCommerce. I concentrated on the OSS procedure on invoices. Next, I showed where to set the tax rates that will be used for digital products. Thanks to them, WooCommerce will correctly choose the tax rate according to the buyer’s country. With several VAT rates and the right rate for converting amounts on invoices, it’s a good idea to make sure you do it right.
I also wrote a longer article about Flexible Invoices for WooCommerce following the EU law. And one covering how to create, download, email & print an invoice in WordPress & WooCommerce.

If you want to set prices of your products in different currencies depending on countries, you can use a currency switcher plugin. For example, the Price Based on Countries plugin will help you set fixed prices for products in other currencies. It will also change the currency by recognizing the buyer’s country. You can also use another plugin that will display product prices and will change the currency in your store for customers from various countries.
The Flexible Invoices for WooCommerce plugin will ensure that for such orders (in different currency), a currency invoice will be issued with a conversion table. The plugin will also allow you to edit such an invoice and select the exchange date:
