Can any one tell me this answer

A VAT registered business has joined the flat rate scheme, with a percentage of 16%. During the VAT quarter credit sales are £20,400 (including VAT) and cash sales are £1,200 (including VAT). How much VAT is payable to HMRC?

    I understand you should calculate the total of your gross sales (20,400 + 1,200) and apply the % on it. Therefore the VAT due should be 16% on 21,600 = £3,456. I am not a VAT expert but I guess that's the answer!

    The £21800 is the VAT inclusive figure.
    So the VAT payable is 21800*16/116 = £3006.90
