#### 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

Value added tax returns usually are filed every two months, and payment is due and payable within 25 days after the end of the tax period to which the payment relates.

### Example

Find the VAT price and net price in Trinidad and Tobago (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

Value added tax returns usually are filed every two months, and payment is due and payable within 25 days after the end of the tax period to which the payment relates.
