### Example

Find the VAT price and net price in Turkey (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 ₤
