#### 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 New Zealand (GST % is 15) for an amount of 25000 \$

Solution :
GST % = 15
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 15 ) / 100
= 3750 \$

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 3750
= 28750 \$

Hence the VAT Price is 3750 \$ and Net Price is 28750 \$

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 15
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 15)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.87)
= 25000 - 21739.13
= 25000 - 21739.13
GST Price = 3260.87 \$

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 3260.87
= 21739.13 \$

Hence the VAT Price is 3260.87 \$ and Net Price is 21739.13 \$
