The calculator will show you the price without VAT and the amount of VAT.

For example, the gross price is 320 euros, the VAT rate is 15% and you want to find out the price before VAT.
- select "Calculate price without VAT"
- enter price with VAT = 320 EUR
- enter VAT rate = 15%
- click "Calculate"
The calculator will show the net price and the amount of VAT:
price without VAT = 278.26 EUR
VAT amount = 41.74 EUR

#### How do I calculate VAT? What formula do I use to work out the VAT?

If you know a net price and VAT rate but want to find out the price after tax:
If we assume that VAT rate is 20%, then gross price = net price x 1.2

If you know a gross price but want to find out the price before tax:
If we assume that VAT rate is 18%, then net price = gross price ÷ 1.18

#### How to calculate VAT amount

Example 1. The price before VAT is 130 euros, the VAT rate is 19%. How to work out the VAT and the price including VAT.
total price = net price x 1.19 => total price = 130 x 1.19 = 154.7
VAT amount = total price - net ptice => VAT amount = 154.7 - 130 = 24.7

Example 2. Sometimes you have a total price and need to find the amount of VAT it contains. For example, the gross price is 120 euros, the VAT rate is 21% and you want to calculate the amount of VAT.
net price = total price ÷ 1.21 => net price = 120 ÷ 1.21 = 99.17
VAT amount = total price - net price => VAT amount = 120 - 99.17 = 20.83
