#### Formula:

Add Tax Tax Amount = ( Original Cost * VAT% ) / 100 Net Price = Original Cost + Tax Amount
Remove Tax Tax Amount = Original Cost - ( Original Cost * ( 100 / ( 100 + VAT% ) ) ) Net Price = Original Cost - Tax Amount

### Example

Find the VAT price and net price in Hungary (GST % is 27) for an amount of 25000 Ft

Solution :
GST % = 27
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 27 ) / 100
= 6750 Ft

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 6750
= 31750 Ft

Hence the VAT Price is 6750 Ft and Net Price is 31750 Ft

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 27
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 27)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.79)
= 25000 - 19685.04
= 25000 - 19685.04
GST Price = 5314.96 Ft

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 5314.96
= 19685.04 Ft

Hence the VAT Price is 5314.96 Ft and Net Price is 19685.04 Ft
