    Hi Martin,

    We've had the same problem for years and never found a satisfactory solution via the forum or Mal directly.
    Fortunately we rarely get it queried by customers as they presumably realise that the VAT displayed is the VAT content of the total. It does look strange through.

    We use mOrders to print our invoices so have adjusted the invoice templates such that the paperwork that goes out with the goods shows the VAT in the more conventional way.

    The other problem you may find is with regard to non UK customers in the EU who have a VAT number (in which case VAT is not applicable)

    For these customers the cart should deduct the VAT from the total but it doesn't. It displays the VAT content as zero but doesn't actually take it off of the total

    GT's solution may solve both these problems but in our case with thousands of forms to edit it's quite a task..
