Usually, product details consist of the product description, quantity, unit price and amount. This being a multiple tax invoice, a separate column for tax percentage is given after the taxable value.
A different tax percentage cell makes it easier to calculate the VAT amount on each item. It is mandatory also according to the rules. To the extreme right, there is the “Total Amount” which displays the line total.
The following method of calculation is used for calculating the values:
Taxable Value = Quantity X Unit Price
VAT Amount = Taxable Value X VAT Percentage
