Coupon Code applied after Total Sales
Right now coupon codes are deducted before tax, which in our opinion changed from previous versions. Here in Switzerland as well as all of Europe, coupon codes should be deducted from the total sales at the very end of the order. So, if total amount is 80€ including tax and i have a 20€ coupon discount, final amount needs to be 60€.
At least bring back the old check box on the coupon code page, so we can set it up the way needed, before or after tax. Thanks a lot.

In India, we have GST tax. It is a cascading tax. If an product was purchased by the woocommerce store owner from his supplier for $1500, a GST of 18% i.e. $270 should be paid to the supplier. Let us consider the store owner adds a profit of $500, as per GST rules, 18% should be calculated on the profit and added to the price. As a result the customer has to pay 18% of $2000 (1500+500) which is $360. Out of this $360, the store owner has to pay only $90 (18% of $500) which is GST on markup as tax and keep the $270 to himself because he already paid $270 to his supplier. This is cascading tax.
Now, let us consider a coupon of $2000 off. If this coupon is applied before tax, the tax amount becomes 0. In such a case, the store owner loses $270 because he already paid that to his supplier and has to collect it from the customer. If the coupon is applied after tax, then the customer has to pay $360 out which the store owner can keep $270 to himself and pay $90 to the government.
Why does this even need a discussion? If you operate in a country with taxes, this is going to be a huge set back at the end of the year. The government isnt going to be happy youre not charging taxes on products lol.
