    How much is algebra and how much is Excel and how much is financial theory.

    I don't know financial theory, but it seems like VAT should just be included somewhere in cp. So cp=67+0.2*sp. Substitute into your existing formula for gp and you get
    gp=(sp-mycost-0.2*sp)/sp=(250-67-0.2*250)/250=.532 (for the example given). Does that look right, or is there a different way to handle tax?

    In my own opinion, your formula should have looked like this: gp=(sp/1.2-mycost)/sp/1.2. The colour red aspect of the formula is your sales net of vat, which is what you supposed to use to get your gp margin.
