Hi there, @accounts396.
You've got me here to help and share some insights about your tax rate concern.
QuickBooks Online features may vary in each region due to its different accounting and tax preferences. For the Ireland version, you're unable to change the tax rate in bulk since each item has an individual rate set up. It needs to be done manually.
The system allows you to change the default tax rate of your customer. However, this is only applicable to selected versions like the US and Canada.
On the other hand, since your items are over a thousand, you may check on a third-party application that integrates with QBO and offers the option to modify the tax rate in bulk.
I can see the importance and convenience to have this functionality for you and your business. Know that our developers are constantly finding and considering new features to be added to the system. This way, we'll be able to make the product work the way your business needs.
You can always visit our QuickBooks Online Blog to stay in the loop about our program road-maps.
I'll be right here to help if you have any other questions. Just leave a reply below. Take care!
thanks for your help but i don't have this tab on the Ireland version. I think this may be only on the Canadian version. It seems such a simple setting and would help me so so much to have this option until qbo can resolve this.
I appreciate your prompt response, @accounts396.
I've already updated the response above to provide clarifications regarding the instructions presented earlier. I've included there the information on how to get this issue sorted out.

I'm greatly upset that this all qbo can offer.
Its not manually possible for myself, so i must consider another provider.
The vate rate can change again at anytime and i will be forced to repeat this process every time.
