Is this phrase correct:

Hereof VAT: £18.90

It is showing on the website in basket under the Total price.

Thank you in advance!

    The use of "hereof" is not an error, but it sounds unnatural to me. I'd just write "VAT: £18.90."

    (Whether or not you want to state the percentage used for the VAT calculation is a separate question. In any case, that's a matter of business practice and personal preference, not of language.)

    I would expect such use of "hereof" to mean that the VAT is already included in the total shown - the total is €100 of which €18.90 is VAT. However, I don't know if the website is using the word "correctly"!
