After entering the initial amount in the required text fields, click the ‘+Add GST’ to find the net amount, GST amount and Gross amount.

Formula of calculating the GST amountCanada – 10%
GST = Initial amount x 10%
Gross Amount = Net Amount + GST amount
For exampleThe initial amount of goods and services is $12,000. Find the GST and gross amount.
Solution;Initial amount = $12,000
GST = 12,000 x 10% = 12,000 x 10/100 = $1,200
Gross Amount = 12,000 + 1200 = $13,200
