Tax Free Car - Maths Idiot

#1
Have been quoted a price (with tax) for a Mitsubishi Colt with many extras from a german dealer - €10,500

What is the tax free price at 19% off ?

is the 10,500 the 100% price or the 119% price....i.e. is it the taxed value and you want to remove the tax which is 19% on top of the initial price?

The answer will be different.

It could be either - 8,505 or 8,823 depending on the answer above.

re-reading your note i think it is likely to be the 8,823 value.

Cost price = 100
Tax - 19%
Total = 119

Now you come along with your "mergerstewer" form and take 19% off

119 - 19% = (119-22.61) = 93.39. Oops. :)

That is why it works out at 15% instead of 19.

8823.52, easy no? 10,500 /1.19. Assuming the 10,500 incl. 19% Deutsche MwSt.

If €10,500 includes the tax then 0.81 x 10,500 = €8,505
I think you're taking the wrong approach - you are taking 81% of the total., but infact the toal is 119% of the original value as it has tax included, what you need to do is remove the 19% from the 119% to return to 100%, therefore divide by 119 and multiply by 100, which will then give you the value of thecar prior to 19% tax being added to the cost.

Leaving 8,823 as the original cost of the car.
