This is a really useful and fast tool to calculate the VAT contained within a total amount, or the VAT charged on a net amount.
Our calculator includes the standard and reduced rates for the UK. Please contact us if you would like any other rates added.
Do you ever struggle to work out the amount of VAT in a specific sum? Maybe you need to work out how much VAT to add to an amount that doesn’t currently have it included.
Whatever the case may be, you can get the answers you need right here and now. Bookmark this page today because once you realise how easy it is to use our VAT calculator, you’ll want to get easy access to it whenever you need it in the future.
Firstly you have to enter the sum you want to work with. This could either be a total sum, where you need to find out the amount of VAT it includes, or a net sum. In the latter case the calculator will tell you how much VAT you need to add to that amount.
You then choose the VAT rate to add to it. Click on the arrow next to the rate box and the drop down box will appear with the options you need. Choose the appropriate one and make sure it appears in the box once chosen.
You then need to indicate whether the sum you entered in the amount box was inclusive of VAT or not. Tick it if it was, or leave it blank if not. Finally hit the calculate button and you will be taken to the next screen.
Next, you’ll see the results. You’ll get the amount you entered, the VAT rate (at the percentage rate you originally chose) and the net amount which includes or excludes the VAT, depending on your choices.
The middle box shows you the exact amount of VAT relevant to your sum. So you can use the VAT calculator to work out how much VAT to add on, or use it to see what the VAT amount is for the sum given.
As you can see, it’s an easy calculator to use and it takes just a few seconds to work out the sums you need. If you are working out how much VAT to add to your prices, this is the tool you need. If you want to see how much VAT is included in prices you are paying elsewhere, the tool can handle that too.
Whatever you need it for, keep it close and make sure you use it whenever you need to.
