Best answer

Calculate the correct amount of VAT the business has to pay. Show ALL workings

43 820 + (1 330 + 2 604+ 112 + 756 ) – (184 + 6 818 )
                       4 802                                    7002
=41 620 

OR 43 820  + 1 330 + 2 604 + 112 + 756 – 184 - 6 818 

OR -43 820  - 1 330 - 2 604 - 112 - 756 +  184 + 6 81
