I know that, but that doesn't answer my question.

Let me put it another way.

If I have quoted the customer a price for goods including VAT, is it
valid to place the *VAT inclusive* price underneath the price tag, or
does the price always have to exclude taxes?

The reason this matters is rounding - if you take a VAT inclusive price,
take off the tax, then put the tax back on again, you can sometimes not
come back to the number you started with.

Is there a document anywhere that describes how to handle VAT inclusive
pricing anywhere?
