This can not work. Example, in belgium (21% vat):

Suppose a retail price of 1.99€  (including tax).
You can not manage the prices with tax excluded because:
  - 1.64€ * 1.21 = 1.98€
  - 1.65€ * 1.21 = 2.00€

If you manage prices with tax excluded, it's impossible to have a 1.99€
price with tax included. A show that works with prices including taxes
must manage prices including taxes.
