Realtor Commission Calculator with VAT

By Mateusz Mucha
Realtor commission with VAT adds tax on top of the realtors commission (not on top of the price of the house, though).

This is a variant of the realtor commission calculator which also adds value added tax to the commission (but only to the commission, we assume that the house price is not a subject to VAT). Also, it appears that in most cases the commission is only taken from the selling party. We know there are exceptions, and if you'd like us to cover another case, we'll happily build a calculator for you. Just contact us. You can find our details at the bottom of the page.

An example situation: a realtor is an intermediary in a transaction. The house sells for €100000. Realtor's commission is 3% and a 23% VAT rate applies. The net commission is €3000, which becomes €3000 + (€3000 * 0.23) = €3690 gross. So the total the owner of the house receives is €100000 - €3690 = €96310.

You can also calculate the commission starting with the amount the seller wants to receive. For example, the house owner wants to cash in €250,000, knowing that the commission is 2.5% and that the VAT rate is equal to 23%. To obtain the desired sum, the owner needs to sell the house for a gross sum of €250,000 / [100% - 2.5% * (100% + 23%)] = €257,931.39.
