We are changing our pos system and I am in charge of hunting one down. I have looked at the version 4 software a long time ago and liked it, but we already had one. So I like your system but, as I live in Ontario Canada, we have some strict rules on taxes and i need to know this software will do what we need. So here we go, we have two taxes gst-5% and pst8%. together they are called HST. I have seen the HST on here but can’t find my answer. In ontario, if the total food bill is $4.00 including HST or less there is no pst added, just gst but, only on certain products (Prepared foods)…i already have that figured out. Now if the total bill is over $4.00 then HST for that product.
We sell a cheeseburger for $2.99 and a 355 mL can of diet soda for $0.99 to a consumer. The total price is $3.98.
The cheeseburger is a qualifying prepared food for purposes of the rebate. Because the diet soda is sold together with a qualifying prepared food, it is a qualifying beverage for purposes of the rebate. As the total price for the two items is not more than $4.00, the restaurant collects only the 5% federal part of the HST and PST Exmpt 8% provincial part of the HST to the consumer at the point of sale.
