VAT rate in Africa as of 2021, by country

VAT [Value Added Tax] is an indirect tax on consumption.

This is a percentage increase in the price of every item we buy and every service we receive, this model of tax unification allows for greater transparency and ease of taxation.

How do I calculate VAT?

The amount of tax is levied on the value added at each stage of the process.

For example, suppose a consumer buys a lampshade for $100. With a VAT rate of 17%, $17 would be the tax on the product.

Dividing this value by the steps it takes to get this lampshade to the consumer, we could put it this way:

Stage Selling Price Value Added VAT (17%)
Lamp factory $50,00 $50,00 $8,50
wholesaler $75,00 $25,00 $4,25
retailer $100,00 $50,00 $4,25
VAT Total $ 17,00
