#### 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 Japan (GST % is 8) for an amount of 25000 ¥

Solution :
GST % = 8
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 8 ) / 100
= 2000 ¥

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 2000
= 27000 ¥

Hence the VAT Price is 2000 ¥ and Net Price is 27000 ¥

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 8
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 8)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.93)
= 25000 - 23148.15
= 25000 - 23148.15
GST Price = 1851.85 ¥

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 1851.85
= 23148.15 ¥

Hence the VAT Price is 1851.85 ¥ and Net Price is 23148.15 ¥
