Hotel Tourist Tax | Hotel City Tax
Hotel PMS Software, How to setup: Hotel Tourist Tax | Hotel City Tax.
Tourist Tax / City Tax / Regional Taxes
Tourist tax can be setup per night and per guest, but you are correct that the final amount is not itemized per night on the invoice, as it would make the invoice confusing for most people. The total appears as one item indicating how many nights/guests are used to compute. There is currently no way to specify that a tax should only be applied to the first 4 nights of a reservation.
It is possible for you to let your guests know that an additional taxes may be applied or discounted at check-out. You can do as follows:
- 1. You can choose to delete all relevant tax items that may be computed at check-out from ‘My Hotel > Taxes’ so they are not included automatically.
- 2. You can specify pricing policies involving children under ‘Channel Manager > Booking Engine > Settings’. Click ‘Edit’ and in the field titled ‘Children’ you can say for example “Tourist Tax is not collected for Children under 12. Discounts may be applied at check-out.”
- 3. You can use the ‘Hotel Policy’ field to specify any additional tax or pricing policies. For example, “Tourist tax is only collected for the first 4 nights of your stay. Discounts may be applied at check-out.”
Both of the items will be displayed to guests in your booking engine without affecting pricing. You just need to be sure that the person at the check-out desk remembers to either apply the taxes by hand when your guests check out in the case where you remove the tax items, or adjust them accordingly in the case where you leave the tax items to be computed by the system.
Taxes & Fees
You may want to have taxes included automatically when reservations are made or rescheduled. Suppose your hotel includes both a ‘Federal Tax’ at 20% (VAT) and a ‘Tourist Tax’ at $7 per guest (Tariff) for every reservation.
Go to ‘My Hotel > Taxes’ in the main navigation menu, then click ‘New Tax’. For the ‘Federal Tax’ in this example, enter 20 for ‘Amount’ and select ‘Percent’. For the ‘Tourist Tax’ enter 7 for ‘Amount’ and select ‘Per Guest’. You now have two taxes that will be added to every reservation, as in the example.
