Adding a Sales Tax to your Bookings

Overview

Launch 27 gives you the option of adding a sales tax to the final amount of all of your bookings.

You simply set the sales tax percentage (i.e. 5%) in your site settings and we’ll multiply it by the amount for the booking (after discounts and price adjustments are applied).

  1. Go to Settings > Sales Taxes
  2. Click Enable Sales Tax feature

    2. Set a percentage value for your Tax

FAQs

How is Sales Tax calculated?

Sales Tax is calculated by multiplying the sales tax rate by the final amount of the booking after discounts and price adjustments are applied.

For example, if you have a booking for $100 and a sales tax rate of 5%, the Final Amount of the booking will be $105.00.

Does the Sales Tax include any Tips/Gratuity paid by the Customer?

No, the sales tax is calculate before tip/gratuity is included. Building off the previous example, if there was a tip added for $10, the Final Amount of the booking will be $115.00 ($105 + $10).
