Adding VAT to a price

We shall work it based on the current VAT rate of 17.5%.
To add VAT on at a different VAT rate simply replace the 17.5 in the first line with the new relevant VAT rate.

To begin with you need to work out the multiplier:
17.5 ÷ 100 = 0.175
0.175 + 1 = 1.175

Multiplier = 1.175

Net Price (price before tax) multiplied by 1.175 = Gross Price (Price after tax)


£10 * 1.175 = £11.75

In the above example £10 was the price before VAT, and the £11.75 is the price with the 17.5% VAT added on
