Do You Know?

Many European Countries started implementing the VAT system since the year, 1960.

Defining Value Added Tax (VAT)

A manufactured product passes through various stages of production starting from the procurement of raw materials up to its commercial sale. An indirect tax is levied across the various stages of production. This is known as Value Added Tax. The tax which is paid for acquiring this stock item is allowed to the purchaser as Input Tax Credit. When this stock item is sold, the value-added tax which is paid on purchasing the item is adjusted toward the input tax credit, and the balance amount is paid. The purchases entry with VAT and Sales entry with VAT are recorded with the help of a number of readings of the petrol pump machine. 

The Process of Calculating VAT

The tax paid at the time of the purchase is Input Tax and the tax which is to be paid at the time of sales is known as Output Tax. 

Value-added tax is calculated in the following manner:

VAT = Output Tax - Input Tax

At every stage of the manufacturing process of any product, the buyer has to pay the VAT amount to the seller as the difference in the gross amount. The total VAT paid by each of the suppliers is finally paid by the consumer.
