#### 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

Since April, 2015 Malaysia's sales and services tax was replaced by Goods and Services Tax (also known as Value Added Tax) with standard rate of 6 %.

### Example

Find the VAT price and net price in Malaysia (GST % is 6) for an amount of 25000 RM

Solution :
GST % = 6
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 6 ) / 100
= 1500 RM

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 1500
= 26500 RM

Hence the VAT Price is 1500 RM and Net Price is 26500 RM

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 6
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 6)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.94)
= 25000 - 23584.91
= 25000 - 23584.91
GST Price = 1415.09 RM

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 1415.09
= 23584.91 RM

Hence the VAT Price is 1415.09 RM and Net Price is 23584.91 RM

Since April, 2015 Malaysia's sales and services tax was replaced by Goods and Services Tax (also known as Value Added Tax) with standard rate of 6 %.
