fix reverse charge support (eu)

Under Consideration

The reverse charge support in blesta is broken/wrong!

Currently invoices for vat exempt businesses show 0% vat,

where it should not show any VAT!

this means that we are incorrectly charging 0% tax vs not charging it.

(invoice needs to show a note of "reverse charge rules apply" in this case, wich can be done currently via the extra nots/comments/text in invoice cumtomisation).

This includes all other services in respect of which tax is payable in accordance with the general rule in another Member State pursuant to section 3a paragraph 6 UStG ( at the place of receipt), in particular:

Quick fix:

invoice: when customer = vat registered business

a) don't show vat (also not 0% like its now incorrectly, just hide the line)

b) Display Customers Vat-ID and our Business VAT ID

Additional fixes for Brexit, Switzerland that should be implemented later:

=> Display an alternative VAT-ID based on Users Location (ie display our switzerland vat id => if the users is in switzerland, overriding the .eu one| UK Vat id for .uk users)

Split the Reverse charge text into its own field at some point:
