Reverse VAT of 19%

(mwst calculator inverted)

19% VAT: calculate 15.966% of the price (1/6.26331)

Accepted price incl. VAT = 119 Euro.

Calculate price excluding 19% VAT: 119x 0.84034 = 100 Euro

or 119/ 1.19 = 100 Euro

VAT amount at 19% VAT: 119 x 0.15966 = 19 Euro

or 119/ 6.26331 = 19 euros

Inverted VAT of 16%

(reverse vat calculator)

16% VAT: calculate 13.793% of the price (1/7.25)

Accepted price incl. VAT = 116 Euro.

Calculate price excluding 16% VAT: 116 x 0.86207 = 100 euros

or 116 / 1.16 = 100 euros

VAT amount at 16% VAT: 116 x 0.13793 = 16 euros

or 116 / 7.25 = 16 euros

Inverse VAT of 7%

Assumed price incl. VAT = 107 Euro

Calculate price excluding 7% VAT: 107 x 0.93458 = 100 Euro

or 107 / 1.07 = 100 Euro

VAT amount at 7% VAT: 107 x 0,06542 = 7 Euro

or 107 / 15.2857 = 7 Euro

Inverted VAT of 5%

Assumed price incl. VAT = 105 Euro

Calculate price excluding 5% VAT: 105 x 0.95238 = 100 euros

or 105 / 1.05 = 100 euros

VAT amount at 5% VAT: 105 x 0.04762 = 5 euros

or 105 / 21 = 5 Euro

Suppose the price excluding (without) VAT is 100 euros. With 19% VAT, the price is then 119 euros. We can either divide or multiply to get the value or amount we are looking for. Most of the time we only see the multiplication versions, but this is strange because we get exactly the same result if we calculate the VAT backwards. Good to know in case the multiplication key on your calculator has been prematurely retired or similar…

Backward VAT for X%

Sometimes you may need to calculate prices without the German VAT rates. Maybe you work multinationally and need to calculate the price without VAT for branches in neighbouring countries that have different VAT rates. If we are then to calculate with any VAT rate, then we cannot use predefined multiplication numbers or divisions with a special number. To calculate with the general VAT rate X, we have to solve an equation. For example, I use the standard German VAT rate of 19%.

Assumed price incl. VAT = 119 Euro,.

X = 19 (VAT in percent).

Calculate the price without X% VAT: 119 / (1 + (X/100)) =

119 / (1 + (19/100)) =.

119 / (1 + (0,19)) =

119 / (1,19) = 100 Euro

The VAT amount with X% VAT: 119100 = 19 Euro.
