# VAT calculator (gross-net)

The **VAT (gross-net) calculator** is a useful tool in the field of finance and accounting that allows you to easily convert the value between the net price and the gross price, taking into account the VAT rate. And vice versa: on the basis of the given gross amount and the selected VAT rate, the net amount is calculated. In addition, the VAT amount is calculated based on the calculated amounts (gross and net) and the selected tax rate. The amounts are calculated to two decimal places.

## How to use the VAT (gross to net) calculator?

To calculate the interest amounts, select the type (net to gross or gross to net), the VAT rate (you can choose from the following list of rates 3%, 5%, 7%, 8%, 22%, 23%, 24% and 25%) and enter the amount in the form above. After entering the amount, the result will appear with the following data: net, VAT rate, VAT amount, gross.

You can change the type, VAT rate and amount at any time. The result is automatically recalculated. Quick and easy.

### Gross price and net price. How do they differ?

**gross price**is the price that includes (takes into account) VAT.**net price**is the price that does not include (take into account) VAT.

These prices are different in amount. The gross price is higher than the net price (unless the VAT rate is 0%, in which case the two prices are equal).

When we are not in business, of course, we are interested in the gross price. That is, the one where the net price has been increased by the value of the VAT.

### Formulas to calculate prices with VAT

In our VAT calculator, we have used two simple formulas to calculate gross to net and net to gross. You can use them to calculate the amount you are interested in:

- To calculate the gross amount (conversion from net to gross), use the formula:
- To calculate the net amount (conversion from gross to net), use the formula:

#### Examples of calculating prices with VAT

- Example 1: A company providing IT services has signed a contract for the creation of a website with a net price of $ 10000. What is the total amount to be paid by the buyer? The current VAT rate for this type of service is 23%. Using the first formula we have
`10000 * (1 + 23 / 100) = 10000 * 1.23 = 12300`

. This means that the buyer pays**12300 $ gross**for the service. - Example 2: The entrepreneur buys books for 120 $ (gross), which are taxed with 5% VAT. Since these are books that he can "throw in" himself, we can calculate how much less VAT he will pay? Using the second formula, we have
`120 / (1 + 5 / 100) = 120 / 1.05 = 114.29`

, now we subtract the net amount (114.29) from the gross amount (120): 120 - 114.29 = 5.71. That is, the amount we are looking for is**5.71**. This is the exact amount of the sales tax for the books purchased.
