How do I calculate GST amount?
With the unified system of taxation, taxpayers can now determine the tax levied at multiple stages for different goods and services under the GST regime. For calculating GST, the taxpayer must be aware of the applicable GST rate for each category. The various GST rates are 5 percent, 12 percent, 18 percent, and 28 percent.
If a product or service is sold for Rs. 1,000 and the applicable GST rate is 18 percent, then the net price will be = Rs. 1,000 plus (1,000 x (18/100)) = Rs. 1,000 plus Rs. 180, or Rs. 1,180.
GST Calculation Formula
For calculating GST, a taxpayer can use the formula below:
To add GST to the base amount,
GST Amount = (Original Cost * GST %)/100 Net Price = Original Cost plus GST Amount
To eliminate GST from the basic amount,
GST Amount = Original Price - (Original Price * (100 / (100 + GST %))
Net Price = Original Price - Amount of GST
