#1102 1.3 AP transaction, tax included option - is it working?


I tried to create a new AP transaction, where I would like to enter the amount with the Tax included option.

As I entered the amount increased by the VAT and I saved it, I found that, it did not respect the option and handled the amount as a value without VAT.
I attached a screenshot from SQL ledger, where I am able to set this correctly:
As you can see, I just split the total amount (taxes included) into three parts (government rule) and I entered them.
The system automatically calculated the taxes and put that into the right places.

In contrast, in lsmb 1.3.38 I am not able to do the same thing.
When I enter the total amount, no tax calculated and entered into the right accounts.
If I enter the tax, too, it will be added to the amount I entered above.

So, as I can see, this option does not work, right? I have to enter the net values and enter the taxes, too.

Please confirm.

    that's correct: there's no way for LedgerSMB to know how to calculate taxes in transactions. The right action here is to remove the "Tax included" checkmark: think what happens if you have two tax accounts. Which one should it choose?

    Fixed by removing the "Tax included" button.
