RE: Prices incl VAT in ecommerce and POSby
Must not be that hard.
Product prices are VAT excl. Products are categorized. On the category you give the possible VAT codes.
For each shop / webshop you define, prices will be shown incl. or excl. as chosen for this shop and you make a list of the article categories used in the shop with the VAT code to use for this articles in this shop. Administer this is not that hard ( Vat changes need only be done on categories ), it’s flexible and it’s logical easy.
> However, the current handling of inclusive/exclusive taxes is far from optimum.
I agree it's complex to mix prices with vat included and excluded. (E.g. eCommerce & SO). But we had an internal discussion a few weeks ago, and we din't find a way to improve that. Putting the vat included\excluded on the product + sale order + invoice is even more complex and does not fit with most real use cases.
An other option is to create a second price on product forms, for ecommerce and pos.
Anyone has a better idea?
