    Hi,

    Does anyone know how much VAT costs extra on top of a bill?
    I am wanting my car fixed at this garage, I have been given a price of around £70 but then he says "plus vat".
    Does anyone know how much the Vat would be?

    Thanks

    I see schools are doing their job well....

    To work out the final figure including VAT at the current rate, multiply the price by 1.2

    70 x 1.2 = £84

    It's quite bad isn't it that I'm in my last year of University and don't know VAT price. Hahaha
