VAT Calculations

Let us consider the following that we made, for VAT Computation:


1. Purchased from Creditor-1, 100 quantities of item1 at the rate of Rs.50 each.


The Input VAT@4% for this amount is Rs.200.


2. Purchased from Creditor, 100 quantities of item2 at the rate of Rs.50 each. However we applied a discount of Rs.200 here. Also, Excise tax of Rs.800 and Educational Cess of Rs.16 were levied on this.


Therefore we applied the InputVAT@4% on the Assessable value of Rs.5616, which is Rs.224.64.


Therefore total Input VAT = Rs.200 + Rs.224.64 = Rs.424.64


3. Sale of 50 quantities of item1@Rs.300 to Debtor-1 .


OutputVAT@4% = Rs.600.


4. Sale of 100 quantities of item @ Rs.100 each.


Output VAT@1%= 100


Therefore total Output VAT = Rs.600 + Rs.100 = Rs. 700


Therefore VAT Payable-> Output VAT - Input VAT = Rs.275.36


This is calculated automatically by Tally and the VAT Computation screen will be displayed as shown below.
