Ok Guys, there's an error somewhere and I can't determine for sure if the error lies with me or with VPASP.

I have the following setup:

xtaxbyproduct = empty
xtaxcountryname = UK
xtaxcountryrates = .15
xtaxeu = Yes
xtaxeucountries = UK
xtaxeurate = .15
xtaxexcludeproducts = Empty
xtaxexcludeproductsdb = Empty
xtaxfreeproducts = Yes
xtaxincludedinprice = Yes
xtaxincludediscount = Yes
xtaxincludeshipping = Yes
xtaxshippingstate = No
xtaxstatename = Empty
xtaxstaterates = Empty

I have a product for which the retail price is 90 and a delivery fee of 10.

Total order value = 100

VPASP calculates the inclusive VAT Amount as 14.89.

This is incorrect, if the 100 includes VAT at 15%, the VAT amount should be shown as 13.04

(Example... 86.96 + VAT at 15% = 100)

If I go one step further and change xtaxincludedinprice to "No", the system should calculate the order value of 100 + VAT at 15% and arrive at a total value of 115... but it doesn't... it's showing 117.50.... that is to say it appears to be calculating VAT at 17.5% if I specify that xtaxincludedinprice = No despite the fact I've got ".15" specified as the tax rate.
