Standard Input Tax to sale to government

This kind of VAT on Sales is the result of taxable sales transactions to government with 12% VAT multiplied with taxes withheld from sales coming from products/services sold by supplier to the government (7%).

Formula: [Taxable Sales to Government   X   Amount of Input Tax not Directly Attributable]

Example:

If you have 1,400,000 of total sales, and 200,000 of it it were sales to government, then:

200,000 x 0.07 = 14,000

Total Input Tax attributable to sale to government

To calculate your total input tax attributable, you should get the sum of both your Input Tax Directly Attributable to Sale to Government with the Amount of Input Tax Not Directly Attributable. See formula below:

[Input Tax directly attributable to sale to government  +  Amount of Input Tax not directly attributable]

Input Tax on Sale to Govt. closed to expense (To Item 20B)

To get this amount, subtract your Total Input Tax attributable to sale to government with your Standard Input Tax to sale to government.

Formula: [Total Input Tax attributable to sale to government - Standard Input Tax to sale to government]
