@pldtm: it wasn’t removed, but made more straightforward.
For the website that operates with VAT:
Admin > System > Configuration >
Catalog > Prices > Scope = Website
Sales > Tax > Tax based on = Shipping Origin
Sales > Tax > Prices including tax = Yes
Now during product editing the prices will show near the currency <b>[Incl. Tax]</b>
That means all the prices entered are including tax. (regular, special, tier prices)
When the product is added to the cart, the sidebar mini shopcart will show prices and subtotal including tax, but when the customer views the cart page, it will show product prices excluding tax, subtotal excluding tax, and separate Tax total line.
The limitationa of previous approach include:
* inconvenience calculating the tax inclusive price of the product, which is shown in catalog that
* it is virtually impossible to show both incl. and excl. tax prices consistently everywhere.
(configurable dropdowns price adjustments, grouped products, tier prices, related products, cross-sell, up-sell, mini-shopcart, etc.)
* calculation of both prices in every location drags additional performance hit.
So in your case it would probably best to create 2 websites, one for B2C with prices including VAT, and B2B - excluding VAT and possible better prices.
