Change Receipt Tax (Alternate Sector)

There are a few situations where it may be useful to change the Tax on a Receipt at the time of sale.

In a Hospitality environment sometimes the Tax can change depending on a take-out or eat-in style order.

Outside of that there are situations where you may have a party that is Tax free such as a banquet or public event.

To use the Tax change functionality in the KORONA.pos Cloud, there are two points to consider:

First, you must add an Alternative Sector for all items that are consumed in the store. By default, these articles are sold according to the original sector, or tax rate, whereas the alternative rate is whatever option you’d like to set as a secondary. Whether that be a different Tax Rate, or Tax Free.

Secondly, you need a button on the point of sale to trigger changing the sector. The options for this are using Toggle Sector, Apply Alternativ Sector, Apply Default Sector.

Toggle Sector: Will have it so that whatever items are selected will switch between their Default and Alternative Sector.

Apply Alternative: Will switch all selected items to the alternative Sector

Apply Default Sector: Will switch all selected items to the Default Sector.

Directions on how to add a button to your POS can be found here: Create POS Buttons / Button Configuration

In our example, when the customer decides to drink his coffee in the store, we simply select the item on the receipt and press the button to change the sector. As you see, the tax rate changes from 6.5% (1) to 12% (2).
