The way you set taxes up in Hubtel POS depends on whether your in-store prices are displayed excluding tax, or including tax.

Your store will default to the correct setting from your registration document. In the absence of one, this must be set when you are first setting up your store. This should not be changed ones you are setup.

  • Tax-inclusive stores
  • Tax-exclusive stores

Tax Inclusive Stores

Your store is tax-inclusive if the prices of your goods/services are listed with the tax included. This means that at the point of sale, the price of each good/service does not change from what it is listed as.

Creating a sales tax (inclusive)

  1. Click on Setup -> Sales Taxes
  2. Once here, click on the Add Tax button on top of the taxes list.
  3. Name your tax and type the tax percentage (ignore the percentage (%) sign).
  4. Select Yes to set tax as already included in price.

You’ve now created a new tax rate.

Apply the tax for your store

A new tax is always listed as disabled. To apply a tax to your store, you must enable it using the Details button. For tax inclusive stores, applying a tax means it will be shown to customers on receipts. It will not charge customers additional fees.

To enable a tax:

  1. Click Setup -> Sales Taxes
  2. Locate the tax you want to enable from the list of taxes.
  3. Click on the three dots icon and select Enable.
  4. The tax will now be applied to your store at the point of sale.

To disable the tax, follow the same process and select Disable.

Tax Exclusive Stores

Your store is tax-exclusive if the prices of your goods/services are listed without tax included. This means that at the point of sale, tax is added to the price of each good/service you sell.

Taxes created and enabled in Hubtel POS are applied automatically on total prices in a single sale or transaction.

Hubtel POS allows you to make as many individual taxes as you need, and lets you apply them on the different sales you make.

Creating an individual sales tax (exclusive)

  1. Click on Setup -> Sales Taxes
  2. Once here, click on the Add Tax button on top of the taxes list.
  3. Name your tax and type the tax percentage (ignore the percentage (%) sign).
