Thanks for this important video lecture sir, I finally understand the concept of VAT.
You know I was trying another calculation, and it was messing up my answer – maybe would know the reason.
For eg 2 for instance, To find the tax exclusive price, I tried this = 120 x 0.84 [Because to find value inclusive we can add 0.16 to 1 and make it 1.16 and then multiply to get the number 120, then why not the other way be possible 1-0.16= 0.84. Use this reversed number and multiply it with 120 to find the exclusive price?). And the answer was 100.8.
The correct answer was 120/1.16 = 103.45
120/116 x100 = 103.45.
I wonder where the logic went wrong…

Because you’re saying you’re taking 0.16 from 1 to make 0.84 of 120. But the tax isn’t 0.16 of 120. It’s 0.16 of the net price which is 103.45.

Not your question but sales tax related. The following trans took place during Alan’s first month of trading
Credit sales of $121000 exclusive of sales tax
Credit purchases of $157110 inclusive of sales tax
Cash payments to credit suppliers of $82710 inclusive of sales tax
all transactions are subject to 20% sales tax- What was Alan’s sales tax account at the end of his first month of trading?
I answered : 15770 DR but answer was $1985 DR. Why was the cash payment sales tax not counted on Alan’s Sales tax account because he would have separated it so he could claim it back? I know its not your question but intrigued

In future please ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum, and not as a comment on a lecture.
The cash paid is not for extra purchases. It is payment of part of the amount for the purchases on credit. The sales tax is accounted for then the purchases were made.

Thanks for the lectures, they’re very helpful.
I am struggling with your example as in if the tax is on the final price of the product the your example doesn’t add up as 20% of 12 is 2.4 and 20% of 6 is 1.2 and so on.

Never mindI just realised this is VAT not normal tax.
