I noticed that you posted this question several times and nobody has answered it. That is probably due to the fact that we are not familiar with VAT.

I will give it a shot.

list price by manufacturer = Rs 240

wholesaler gets 25% discount, so he pays

Rs 180

question: does VAT get added here ?

if so, there would be tax paid on tax already added at the end.

without VAT added at this stage, the retailer discounts the RS 180 by 15% , thus list price by retailer is .85(180) = RS 153

This makes no sense to me.

Where does the wholesaler make his profit?

Isn't he taking a loss ???

I think this question needs more clarification.
