Income before tax (EBT) = 2,350,000/(1-0.21) = \$2,974,684

EBIT = EBT + interest expenses

EBIT = 2,974,684 + 1,221,000 = 4,195,684

Gross profits = EBIT + depreciation + other operating expenses

Gross profits = 4,195,684 + 2,100,000 + 3,300,000 = \$9,595,684

Cost of goods sold = 50%, Gross profit = 50%

So the net sales = 9,595,684/0.50 = \$19,191,368
