We have a universal calculator for the VAT in France that calculates the amount of payable taxes, based on the selling price and the type of rate.
If you click on the other tab, you can also reverse the calculation, by inserting the total amount in order to get the price excluding taxes.
Here is how the total is calculated before VAT:
Amount with VAT / (1+(VAT rate/100)) = Amount without VAT
Amount without sales tax * VAT rate = VAT amount
The sales tax on goods and services in France is known as the Value Added Tax. The tax is levied on every stage of a product commercialization. Whenever a customer buys a good, the company charges him the amount with VAT, that is tax included. For the consumer, there is no difference when it’s time to pay, because the tax rate will be applied on the total amount.
There are four types of value added taxes in France: reduced, Super Reduced VAT rate 2.1%, intermediate and normal rates.
