Resolution

There are two ways to look at gross and net price from a business perspective.
On the purchasing side:
- The Gross Price is the price with which you start the pricing procedure in purchasing.
- The Net Price is the price used which includes all discounts and surcharges, and the VAT (Sales and Use Tax,..) if the tax is not fully deductable.

On the invoicing side:
- the Net Price is the price of the invoice without the tax.
- the Gross Price is the price of the invoice including the tax.
