### Example

Find the VAT price and net price in Luxembourg (GST % is 17) for an amount of 25000 €

Solution :
GST % = 17
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 17 ) / 100
= 4250 €

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 4250
= 29250 €

Hence the VAT Price is 4250 € and Net Price is 29250 €

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 17
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 17)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.85)
= 25000 - 21367.52
= 25000 - 21367.52
GST Price = 3632.48 €

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 3632.48
= 21367.52 €

Hence the VAT Price is 3632.48 € and Net Price is 21367.52 €
