Flux = The surface integral of the field E = charge / permitivity in space (Gauss law)

The permitivity in space is:

8.85 10

^{-12}Coulombs

^{2}/N m

^{2}

So I understand the units of Flux are:

Newton meter

^{2}/Coulombs

Is this correct? I don't understand why in a book they say that the net flux is simply the charge, ignoring the permittivity units.

ALternatively the permittivity could be given in Farad/meter so our flux would be:

Coulombs meter/ Farad

Is this correct?

Thanks!
