The solution of creating a price list to to calculate the correct price for Exempt customers is not complete. The reason being that some of the products that I sell are Zero Rate (0%) . Therefore based on a calculated Price list to remove TAX you get the following scenario.

Product A Tax Code ST11 (20%)

Price £12 (£10 ex TAX)

Product B Tax Code ST0 (0%)

Price £12 (£12 ex VAT)

Customer B Exempt - > Fiscal Rule applied + Assign to calculated price to remove TAX

Product A Price £10 correct

Product B Price £10 incorrect as product B is Zero Rated with a price of £12

This begs the question of "What is the point of a Tax Code with a setting of TAX included in Price?" unless there is a way of Mapping between Fiscal Positions

Does this mean that to set up OpenERP correctly all prices should be EX TAX?

Is it possible to use the Taxes -> Special Computation Field to calculate the price on logic. ie IF (tax_code = ST11 and ST11_tax_is_included) {Price = Price - ST11_TAX} ELSE {return Price} . Will this create problems with tax reports? Can any one provide me with an example?

Your solution is possible, but I wonder why you want your product prices to be with tax included?

If you would create the prices without taxes, openERP is able to do the tax-calculation correctly, depending on the country of the customer and the existence of the VAT number of the customer. This way, the tax-exempt customer might get a receipt with tax included, but he can get it back from the customs.

I am a retail supplier and hence all my customers require the prices inclusive of VAT. I am also using the magento ERPconnector. As I had set the prices in Magento as inclusive of VAT when I imported the products into OpenERP they were based on these values. However, it also seems a bit strange functionally associating TAX codes as Included in Price as this would have been better set at product level and then Taxation could be calculated easier between Taxes. I thought there was a setting elsewhere in the configuration that I had missed.
