#### 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 Jersey (GST % is 5) for an amount of 25000

Solution :
GST % = 5
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 5 ) / 100
= 1250

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 1250
= 26250

Hence the VAT Price is 1250 and Net Price is 26250

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 5
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 5)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.95)
= 25000 - 23809.52
= 25000 - 23809.52
GST Price = 1190.48

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 1190.48
= 23809.52

Hence the VAT Price is 1190.48 and Net Price is 23809.52
