Taxes & Tenders Setup

Taxes

Taxes can be setup as campus-wide, or per location. Campus wide will automatically apply to all items / locations / transactions. Usually, it makes sense to do them campus wide. 

Actions:

  • From the dropdown, select your location or campus wide. 

  • Input the tax name, and the percentage. Percentage is in thousands, to allow for up to three decimal points of accuracy (e.g. 15000 = 15%).

  • Click add tax. 

Once your tax is added, select it from the list. The right side panel will populate and allow for additional set up and editing. Here are the options:

Mandatory Tax: Means that it always applies, regardless of exemptions (i.e. if a meal plan is tax exempt, the tax will still apply)

Flat Campus-Wide Tax: One tax across campus to all items; it’s a simple way to apply tax when there is only one. Note: You cannot have flat tax enabled if there are multiple taxes on campus.

Service Fee Tax: This is usually set to no. 

Once you’ve set up the parameters, click update. If you have multiple taxes that don’t apply everywhere, you can set them by section or item (up to 4 taxes per section / item can be applied). 

Taxes on Sections / Items

As previously mentioned, taxes can be applied at the section and item level as well. The below image shows the options at the sections level, and the item level (they look identical). In both cases, you click Advanced, and the list will expand. 

Tenders

Tenders can also be created campus-wide, or per location. Campus wide will automatically apply to all items / locations / transactions.

Actions:

  • From the dropdown, select your location or campus wide. 

  • Enter the tender name and tender number (should match with what is in your campus card system).

Once added, select it from the list. The right side panel will populate and allow for additional set up and editing. Here are the options:

Discount rate: If there is a discount rate, input it here. 

Taxable: Set to yes or no.

Default Tender: This just makes it the default selection in the app list of tenders when someone reaches the cart. 

Visibility: Set to yes for it to show in the app, or no if you’d don’t want it to show as an option. 

Group ID (for specific period tenders) : Can be ignored. 

If Declining Balance, click update and it is set up. 

Other Tenders:

If Swipe, click on the default Declining Balance and the type will change to Swipe. Then click update and additional options will appear. 

For Board Plan, set Cash Eq and Meal Exchange to No. See below:

For Cash Equivalency, set it to Yes and Meal Exchange to No. Click update and another panel will open to the far right with Cash Eq settings. Here, input the swipe value and max swipes per transaction, then click update. 

If it is Meal Exchange/Meal Money, leave Cash Equivalency as No and set Meal Exchange to Yes, then click update. The panel on the far right will display meal exchange settings. Here, you will create groups with the parameters/conditions to build one meal. An example would be allowing one entree, two sides, and one drink. In each group, you will specify which sections are applicable, and how many items from those sections the customer can choose. With these conditions, customers can choose less items than are allowed, but if they select more items then they would have to pay the remainder with declining balance or credit card.
