    Information

    Rate Type Tax is an option available for Tax Exclusive properties to set an alternate tax rule on a Rate Type.

    Rate Type Taxes override the Tax on the Category and can be setup on a Standalone Rate Type, Derived Rate Type or Property Rate Type Rule.

    Alternate Taxes and are only available on Stand Alone Rate Types.

    Derived Rates will use the tax setup on the Category.

    Inclusive Package Components on a Rate Type will use any Alternate Tax setup instead of the Tax setup on the Sundry Charge.

    Rate Type Tax can be setup as Inclusive Tax to reduce the rate amount by the tax amount or with a selected Alternate Tax to use the selected Taxes instead of the Taxes setup on the Category.

    Rate Type Tax setup as Inclusive Tax will deduct any Flat Amount and Per Person taxes before calculating Percentage taxes.

    Percentage Taxes must be setup with an Inclusive Divisor to be used as a Rate Type Inclusive Tax.

    In the below example the Rate Amount is $100 and the Tax Amount is 10%.

    Tax Exclusive - Category Tax
    1st January 2022 Accommodation (1-Jan-2022) $100

    Tax $10


    Total: $110
    Tax Inclusive - Rate Tax
    1st January 2022 Accommodation (1-Jan-2022) $90

    Tax $10


    Total: $100
