# Calculate Prices With or Without VAT

The following two calculators allow you to either add value added tax to a price or subtract it from the price to figure the VAT-exempt price.

**The first calculator**operates like a sales tax calculator. Enter the pre-VAT amount along with the VAT rate and it will return both the VAT amount and the price inclusive of VAT.**The second calculator**works in the opposite direction of the first calculator. Enter a price inclusive of VAT & it will calculate the VAT amount as well as the price exclusive of VAT.**The third calculator**subtract a percent from the retail price to obtain the clearance sale price or apply a percent off coupon like the popular 20% off Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons.

## Add VAT to a Price

### Y% vat tax added to $X = $Z

### Adding VAT

**Sales Tax Formula: **Y% * $X / 100 = $Z

where

- X = sale price
- Y = VAT % as a decimal
- Z = VAT amount

**Total Price Formula:** $X * (1 + (Y%/100) = $Z

where

- X = purchase price
- Y = VAT % l
- Z = price with VAT

## Subtract VAT Calculator

### $X - Y% VAT = $Z

### Removing VAT

**VAT Exempt Pricing Formula:** $X * ((100 - Y%) / 100) = $Z

where

- X = final price
- Y = VAT %
- Z = VAT exempt price

**VAT Formula:** $X * (1 - (1 - Y%/100)) = $Z

where

- X = final price
- Y = VAT % as a decimal
- Z = VAT amount

## Discounted Price

### Y% off of $X = $Z

**Discount Amount Formula:** (X% / 100) * Y = Z

where

- X = percentage discount
- Y = retail price
- Z = discount amount

**Discount Price Forumla:** ((100 - X%) / 100) * Y = Z

where

- X = percentage discount
- Y = retail price
- Z = final discounted price
