VAT (Value-added tax) or GST (General Sales Tax) are both consumptions taxes.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is VAT?
VAT stands for Value Added Tax. It was first introduced in Europe in the 1970’s. It’s a sum of money charged for goods and services in most countries in the world. Zero-rated products such as food and essential drugs are not subject to value added tax. The tax applies only to domestic consumption, so If you are not a resident of a country you get goods and services at, you are subject to VAT refund. However, if goods are imported or exported from one country to another, VAT is charged.
What is GST?
GST is an abbreviation for Goods and Services Tax. It’s just another name for VAT.
What is the purpose of VAT?
VAT is created to increase the state’s revenue. In most countries, VAT raises approximately 20% of total tax revenue. VAT is one of the most efficient ways to raise funds for government programs. The main disadvantage of VAT is that all costs are endured by the consumer.
How is VAT calculated?
A simple formula is used to calculate the VAT amount: $X x $Y/100= VAT amount. X is the cost of the goods or services and Y is the VAT rate.
In order to get the cost of the product without VAT, the following formula is used: $X/(1+$Y/100).
When do you need a VAT calculator?
Business owners and consumers can find a VAT calculator useful for a number of reasons:

- A quick way to calculate how much VAT can be reclaimed.
