### Example

Find the VAT price and net price in El Salvador (GST % is 13) for an amount of 25000 ₡

Solution :
GST % = 13
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 13 ) / 100
= 3250 ₡

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 3250
= 28250 ₡

Hence the VAT Price is 3250 ₡ and Net Price is 28250 ₡

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 13
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 13)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.88)
= 25000 - 22123.89
= 25000 - 22123.89
GST Price = 2876.11 ₡

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 2876.11
= 22123.89 ₡

Hence the VAT Price is 2876.11 ₡ and Net Price is 22123.89 ₡
