Tax / Surcharge Feature for ConvertDirect

Tax / Surcharge Feature for ConvertDirect

We have enhanced the tax/ surcharge feature. This includes the ability to have tax based on ‘Flat Tax’ or ‘Slab Tax’ model, multiple tax settings, and multiple surcharge settings. This feature used to be enabled only on request.

To make it more user friendly we have enabled this in the STAAH Instant extranet for you to access. We have also made some enhancements which include:
  1. Ability to have tax based on ‘Flat Tax’ model (Fixed)
  2. Ability to have tax based on ‘Slab Tax’ model
  3. Multiple tax settings – If required
  4. Multiple surcharge settings (Added on to per room booked)
This feature is applicable for STAAH ConvertDirect Booking Engine. Taxes are only calculated and added to room and extra guest charges.

Properties already using current tax feature, please use the new module and apply new tax structure (if required).

You will find the button to enable this feature in Property Profile.
