#### 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 South Africa (GST % is 14) for an amount of 25000 R

Solution :
GST % = 14
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = (25000 * 14 ) / 100
= 3500 R

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 + 3500
= 28500 R

Hence the VAT Price is 3500 R and Net Price is 28500 R

#### Remove Tax

Solution :
GST % = 14
Amount = 25000

Step 1 :
GST Price = 25000 - (25000 * ( 100 / (100 + 14)))
= 25000 - (25000 * 0.88)
= 25000 - 21929.82
= 25000 - 21929.82
GST Price = 3070.18 R

Step 2 :
Net Price = 25000 - 3070.18
= 21929.82 R

Hence the VAT Price is 3070.18 R and Net Price is 21929.82 R
