EE Perk question

Hi,

 

I'm due to upgrade soon and will be using my EE perk 20% discount. I'm looking at the iPhone XR 64gb at a cost of £63 per month.

 

I'm trying to work out how much I'll be paying with the discount. Am I right that I have to deduct VAT first then deduct the 20% Discount and re-ad VAT?

Re: EE Perk question

@jappy Yes you are right. So you'll pay £48.38 per month. £48.384 to be precise. 

 

That's £63 - 20% -  20% + 20%.

@jappy if you get your 20% discount then you will pay the £63 less 20%. So, £63 - £12.60 = £50.40. VAT is coincidentally 20%.

Yes, but VAT is 20% of the final cost, so surely that needs to be removed first to know what the base price is.

VAT is not 20% of final cost; it is 20% of price before VAT is added.

 

So your calculation is way out as well as being long-winded. You don't need to go around subtracting & adding VAT. Multiplication is cumulative!

 

The price with the discount is simply £63 - 20% = £50.40.
