Value Added Tax (VAT) Inclusive Pricing is when a price already includes the tax rate.
The Countries page is where you add and configure countries, languages, and currency types. You can also set a tax rate that will calculate tax on the tax line item of an order. With a few simple steps you can include the tax rate in the price of each item in that country, a good idea for countries that have VAT Inclusive Pricing.
