1 - Enable & Define Your Tax Rate

Go to Manage Settings, and click on General Settings.   Scroll down and you will see a checked box that says 'Do Not Charge Tax on Purchases'.  Uncheck it to enable taxes.

You'll want to enter your tax rate, and you can rename what we call 'Tax' if you want (for example VAT or GST.)  Finally you can tell Punchpass if tax is INCLUDED in your pass cost or not.  If not, then tax will be added onto the price of the pass when your customer pays.  If it is included, then the price you define in Manage Passes will be the total cost for your customer.

2 - Taxes Are Now Charged On Purchases

We'll display the tax as a separate line, and note whether the tax is included or is extra.

If you assign a customer a pass, and then EDIT the pass price paid, Punchpass will recalculate the tax owed.

3 - Report on Tax Paid

Tax totals are reported in the Pass Sales Detail report:

We also show the tax paid when viewing the pass in the Customer account.  The example below shows the Tax name changed to 'VAT':


  • There is no way to add more than one tax.

  • Taxes are applied to ALL purchases - you cannot designate which passes are taxable and which are not.

  • The tax amount is not currently passed to Stripe as a separate line item - so Stripe receipts will not reflect the Tax line.
