Multiple Tax Rates

Home -› POS -› Multiple Tax Rates


SplitAbility point of sale supports multiple tax rates through the addition of groups. Groups can also be used to handle group discounts, promotions or daily specials.

A simple store wide tax is one set up option but for multiple tax rates across various items you’ll need to use groups.

Inclusive, exclusive and compound tax rates are supported. Compound taxes are also known as stacked taxes or tax on taxes.

Any number of groups may be added, different rates can be applied to any group. Individual items can have their own tax groups applied to them. Groups may be applied or removed to menu items in the POS with one simple action.
