Hi all,
I seem to have got myself confused while studying Indirect Tax.
In what scenarios are the following calculations used, with standard rate VAT being used;
£100 * 120 x 100 = £83.3333
£100 x 0.2 = 20

The first is when you are given the gross amount and asked to calculate net (gross is 100% plus 20% VAT = 120%  therefore divide by 120 then multiply by 100 to get back to net value).
Second is when you are given net amount and asked to calculate gross.5 
Thank you very much. I had a feeling there was a simple explanation.
