How to remove VAT from a sum manually
Divide the gross amount by (1 + VAT %)
VAT Rate is 20% so divide by 1.20
£100.00 divided by 1.20 = £83.33
Subtract £83.33 from £100.00 = £16.67
Therefore £16.67 is the VAT Amount on an item sold for £100.00.
If you try this sum on the VAT Calculator you will see that it is correct.
