|Value Added Tax, or VAT, is a tax set forth by the Congress or Country President that increases the selling price of items at the marketplace.|
The minimum VAT percentage on market prices is 1%, the maximum one is 50%.
|Tax revenue is added to the country Treasury.|
- If a citizen decides to sell one unit of Helicopters for $1.00, and the countries VAT for Helicopters is 5%, then he will earn just $0,952 for that unit of Food (1.00/105*100).
So be careful when you place an offer on the market. A good idea to avoid losing money is to calculate your real income once VAT is applied, before to place the offer.
