## What Is VAT?

Value-added tax (VAT) is a consumption tax levied on goods and services. It is imposed at each stage of the production and distribution process. The tax is levied on the value added to the good or service at each stage of production or distribution.

## How Do I Calculate VAT?

To calculate VAT, you multiply the purchase price of the good or service by the VAT rate. For example, if you buy a widget for \$100 and the VAT rate is 20%, you would multiply \$100 by 0.20 to get a VAT of \$20.

`VAT = VAT Rate x Price `

## How Do I Calculate VAT Inclusive Price?

To calculate the VAT inclusive price, you need to add the VAT rate to the gross price. So, if the gross price is £100 and the VAT rate is 20%, the VAT inclusive price would be £120.

`VAT Inclusive Price = Price + (VAT Rate x Price) `

## How Do I Calculate VAT Backwards?

If you know the total cost of a good or service including VAT, and you want to know the cost excluding VAT, you can calculate it using the following formula:

`VAT Exclusive Price = VAT Inclusive Price / (1 + VAT rate) `

For example, if you know that the total cost of a widget, including VAT is \$120, and the VAT rate is 20%, you can divide 120 by 1.20 to get the VAT exclusive price.
