Subject: Re: [ubl-dev] InvoiceLine and VAT inclusive quoted pricing

The UBL Procurement Subcommittee are aware of this confusion and are 
addressing it as part of UBL 2.1

The first draft of this should be available for public review in the 
next few months so we welcome feedback from Graham and others on our 
proposed solution when it is published.
