You need to pay 2% NBT on  the sale value before vat. Ie.  5000*2%.

Whether you charge NBT from your customer is a decision upto you which has nothing to do with the payment.

If we charge NBT from customers

Ex: Sales Value - 5000.00

      NBT            -   100.00

VAT                   -   765.00

Total Inv            -  5865.00

What is the amount payable to IRD as NBT

Is that 100.00

Or   (5100*2%)=102.00

you have to pay for ird as nbt Rs.102 (Rs.5100*2%)

Therefore best suggestion to when you collecting nbt from customers you can use following calculation method to avoid bearing excess payment of Rs.2 (102-100) by you.

Sales 5000

nbt     102  (5000/98*2)   

VAT    765

Total  5867

Thank you
