Thanks for the follow up. The new code has cleaned up the repeated lines. Thanks again.
Yes I did spot you query this sort of question somewhere before in one of the numerous posts I have trawled over the past few months as I attempt to master this great software! I too would not understand someone who would appear to want a tax rate that applies only to a specific payment type.
I asked this question purely to make my book keeping a little easier. As I’m sure you’re aware in the UK there has been VAT relief applied on soft drinks and food in the hospitality industry (12.5% as opposed the standard 20%). Therefore I have the products in those categories on our setup, mapped to a 12.5% tax templates. Our work periods end at close of business each day and I enter the days takings into our accounts software. The accounts software works in the standard ‘double entry’ format just like SambaPOS does where each debit has a related credit and vice versa, so the cash receipts of the days takings, credit an Income:Sales Receipts ledger and debit a Cash Account ledger and the Card Payment receipts credit the Income:Sales Receipts ledger and debit a Bank Account ledger. An entry in the ledger only allows for one tax type and entering a tax amount, that when correlated to the net and the gross, if it does not match a defined tax percentage, it will not allow you to complete the entry (which is what adding 12.5 and 20% tax values would do) So consequently for each days takings I have 4 entries - cash 20%, cash 12.5%, card 20% and card 12.5%. So having the different tax totals for each payment type is a helpful starter.
So for example, from my screenshot, if I made an entry for the cash ledger and entered 225.75 for the gross and 36.79 for the tax the software would update the net to 188.96 but would not submit because the tax would not calculate out to the defined rates of 12.5 or 20%.
Hope that clarifies why I asked.
PS did you know some of you vids have disappeared from your tutorials? I’m just recently been wading through the loyalty setup one as I might look to try something like this in the future. Its nice to have some video’s to go with the text thanks.
