#### 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

Banking and financial services, social security services, medical care, education services, real estate services such as leasing, gambling and postal services are exempt from Value Added Tax in Latvia.

### Example

Find the VAT price and net price in Latvia (GST % is 21) for an amount of 25000 Ls

Solution :
GST % = 21
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 21 ) / 100
= 5250 Ls

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 5250
= 30250 Ls

Hence the VAT Price is 5250 Ls and Net Price is 30250 Ls

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 21
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 21)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.83)
= 25000 - 20661.16
= 25000 - 20661.16
GST Price = 4338.84 Ls

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 4338.84
= 20661.16 Ls

Hence the VAT Price is 4338.84 Ls and Net Price is 20661.16 Ls
