Magento 1.7 CE- Tax calculation is totally incorrect

Hi All

We are migrating from Prestashop to Magento and used cart2cart to migrate.

Just testing now and Magento does not seem to add tax to the grand total even though this has been set.

1)  Subtotal                              £14.98
2)  Grand Total Excl. Tax       £9.98
3)  Tax                                        2.50
4)  Grand Total Incl. Tax       £12.48

Tax is 20% and the subtotal includes tax.  But the grand total 4) seems to not include tax, even though set in admin.  The tax of £2.50 is correct and the grand total 3) seems to have been calculated by 4) - 3)

We can get it to work by selecting in admin>tax> Apply tax before discount.  However whenever a discount is used the tax figure would be wrong.

Tried deleting and setting up tax rates again, imported all catalog prices to include vat, rounded down to 2 decimal places.  This seemed to have worked however it may have just been the action of backing up and maintenance mode.

Now it is back to the above example again after installing a loyalty reward module.  Tried disabling that in admin and no effect.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Hi
I haven't 100% grasped your problem however in version 1.8 there have been some improvements in tax calculations - have you seen these?

Hi, thanks for the response!

Yes I have seen the updates but for some reason my developer seems to prefer custom coding a solution instead of upgrading.  I am not too keen as custom coding normally means other modules do not seem to work and upgrading in future becomes impossible.

Magento must have worked out the box.  These are not little rounding issues but the whole calculation is done on the wrong field.

Just switching  the admin>tax>apply before discounts makes it all work.  But no tax is applied on discounts.

Seemed this was all due to a module J2T Auto-Add which when disabled in the xml file stopped these VAT / Grand Total problems.

Went back to basics and disabled all extensions one by one, not just in admin, which was tried, but in all the xml files, and the guilty one is J2T Auto Add VA.
