    How to work out VAT

    Adding, removing and calculating VAT for your invoices can be done with a couple of clicks by using our VAT calculator. If you know the price without VAT added on:

    • Input the price exclusive of VAT
    • Check the rate is correct (it’s pre-set to the standard rate of 20%)
    • Click the ‘Add VAT’ button
    If you know the price including VAT you can also:

    • Input the price inclusive of VAT
    • Check the VAT rate is right for your transaction (again, it’s pre-set at 20%)
    • Click the ‘Remove VAT’ button

    This will now let you know the price without VAT and the amount of VAT being charged.

    manual method
    VAT calculation formula for VAT exclusion is the following: to calculate VAT having the gross amount you should divide the gross amount by 1 + VAT percentage (i.e. if it is 15%, then you should divide by 1.15), then subtract the gross amount, multiply by -1 and round to the closest value (including eurocents). The last two operations are not mandatory since you see the VAT value even before you do them.
    Adding VAT to net amount:
    Easy deal. Simply multiply the net amount by 1 + VAT percentage (i.e. multiply by 1.15 if VAT is 15%) and you'll get the gross amount. Or multiply by VAT percentage to get the VAT value
    • Take the gross amount of any sum (items you sell or buy) – that is, the total including any VAT – and divide it by 117.5, if the VAT rate is 17.5 per cent. (If the rate is different, add 100 to the VAT percentage rate and divide by that number.) Multiply the result from Step 1 by 100 to get the pre-VAT total.
