Every country, province and city handles city tax in a different way. In the UK you probably do not have to worry about a city tax, but in other countries you might find city tax as a charge per person per night or a percentage over your logies revenue. 

Therefore, RoomRaccoon PMS must be very flexible to be able to serve all those different needs.

 City tax for children

This option is only available if you handle a fixed price per person per night. Next to the adult city tax, you can enter a different amount for children. If there is no deviant rate to be set up, you can leave this value at zero.

The system will decide whether the adult or child rate needs to be taken into account based on the date of birth set up in the guest profile. The city tax will only be adjusted after this information is filled in and will not be taken over from any OTA.
