VAT, Shipping and VAT free products

I sell both vatable and vat free items and I can show appropriate prices for both, the problem comes with the shipping. For vatable goods I have to charge vat on the shipping. I can set that up but then I find that I'm also showing an “Including Vat” price on the shipping for the vat free products. Is there a way to set the VAT to apply to different categories/products and for the vat on shipping to follow the same rules.
