VAT calculation formula

For example if VAT is 23% (standard Ireland Value Added Tax rate) , then you should divide by 1.23.
Then subtract the gross amount, multiply by -1 and round to the closest value.
You can find out the gross value simply multiply the net amount by 1 + VAT rate.

In order to get the value of VAT, simply multiply the net amount by the percentage of VAT.
