I've set up OpenCart 2 on my server. The products I sell have 21% "BTW" (VAT). When I add a product with a price, OpenCart assumes the price is without taxes, but the prices I type in are already including the taxes.

How can I let OpenCart assume the prices I type in include the taxes? Or if that isn't possible by default, how would I change OpenCart's source code for that? I don't want to use an extension…

  • Calculating the before tax price as you enter the price is not possible?
