## Introduction to Value Added Tax

VAT stands for Value-Added Tax. It is one type of indirect tax levied on products at every point of supply chain i.e. beginning from the raw materials and all the way to the retail price. The VAT that has been paid by the user is calculated by deducting the product’s cost from any already taxed costs of the product’s constituents. You can calculate VAT in two ways. One formula is to calculate VAT from Initial Price or the Net Amount, and the other formula will help you to calculate VAT from the Price with VAT or the Gross Amount.

Arithmetic Formula for Calculating VAT from Initial Price:

VAT Amount = IP * VAT %

Where,

VAT Amount = The amount of VAT in currency units.

IP = Initial price or net amount in currency units.

VAT % = The percentage of VAT imposed on the product or service.

Arithmetic Formula for Calculating VAT from Price with VAT:

VAT Amount= (FP/(1+VAT%))*VAT%

Where,

VAT Amount = The amount of VAT in currency units.

FP = Price with VAT or the Gross Amount in currency units..

VAT % = The percentage of VAT imposed on the product or service.
