Emerald and taxes

Having gone over the past discussions on this list, I realise there is a
known problem with the way Emerald 2.2 handles taxes. The reports generated
indicate $0.00 in the tax column where there should be an appropriate tax
amount. Further investigations reveal that the tax column in the invoice
database tables is not updated correctly.

Here in Zambia, we have a 17.5% value added tax (VAT) that is applied to all
Internet charges unless the customer is VAT exempted. I would be really
grateful if those of you who have hit this problem can offer possible
solutions to the problem - I really can't wait any longer for Emerald
version 2.5. We are currently using the 2.2.38 client and 2.2.31 admin.
