Example of prices including sales tax

You create a sales order of 10 lamps. The unit price in the order line is EUR 10.00. The sales tax is 25 percent (%).

Case 1

For customer 1, the check box on the form is selected. The sales tax calculation is:

Gross price (including sales tax) = 10 x EUR 10.00 = EUR 100.00.

Net price (excluding sales tax) = EUR 100.00/1.25 = EUR 80.00.

Case 2

For customer 2, the check box is cleared. The sales tax calculation is:

Net price (excluding sales tax) = 10 x EUR 10.00 = EUR 100.00.

Gross price (including sales tax) = EUR 100.00 x 1.25 = EUR 125.00.
