What is VAT?
How VAT Works?
|Cost||VAT 5%||Total||Selling Price||VAT 5%||Total||Input VAT||Output VAT||VAT Payable=Output VAT-Input VAT|
- In the above example, the manufacturer pays 500 on which 5% VAT is applicable on purchase of raw Material and he sold product to distributor 1000 AED + 5% VAT. So, the Manufacturer needs to adjust Input VAT and Output Vat and balance(Output VAT –Input VAT) i.e 25 AED will be payable to FDA.
- Now, distributors sell Product to Retailer 1500 AED + %vat. Then distributor Pay net payable Vat amount to govt.
- And then retailer sells the product to the end customer at 2000AED+5 % VAT.
Now, in this example, the total tax paid by all business supply chains from supplier to retailer is 100 which is the amount of VAT paid by a consumer. It means the entire tax is paid by the consumer.
