VAT stands for value added tax. VAT is an indirect tax that is imposed on goods and services whenever the value is added from the production to the point of sale. Each business in the supply chain can claim a credit for the VAT already paid. However , the final consumer cannot claim this credit, making VAT a tax on the end consumption. It’s a major source of government revenue
worldwide, used in 160 countries.

How to add VAT manually?

Let’s say the product’s base price is 100$ and the VAT Rate is 20%. (According to UK VAT Rate)

  • Base Price = £100
  • VAT Amount = Base Price × VAT Rate = £100 × 0.20 = £20
  • Total Price Including VAT = Base Price + VAT Amount = £100 + £20 = £120

So, the total price of the item, including VAT, would be £120.

How to remove VAT manually?

Let’s say the total price of an item, including VAT, is £120 and the VAT rate is 20%.

  • Total Price Including VAT = 120$
  • VAT Amount = Total Price × VAT Rate = 120$ × 0.20 = 24$
  • Base Price Excluding VAT = Total Price – VAT Amount = 120$ – 24$ = 96$

So, in this example, if the total price including VAT is 120$ and the VAT rate is 20%, then the base price excluding VAT would be 9$.
