#### 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 Malta (GST % is 18) for an amount of 25000 €

Solution :
GST % = 18
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 18 ) / 100
= 4500 €

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 4500
= 29500 €

Hence the VAT Price is 4500 € and Net Price is 29500 €

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 18
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 18)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.85)
= 25000 - 21186.44
= 25000 - 21186.44
GST Price = 3813.56 €

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 3813.56
= 21186.44 €

Hence the VAT Price is 3813.56 € and Net Price is 21186.44 €
