VAT basics: What you need to know

VAT, or Value Added Tax is a consumption tax that is applied to most goods and services. While the standard rate (20%) applies in most cases, there are items—such as children’s car seats and sanitary products—that are charged at the reduced rate of 5%. Using the slider on our calculator, you’ll be able to calculate the VAT and gross or net prices for different VAT rates. If you’re unsure about the correct rate you should apply, refer to HMRC’s resource on VAT rates.
