How to set up city tax

Different forms of touristic taxes apply in each country, province or city. This can be an amount per person per night or a percentage on the amount of accommodation.

Fixed amount
Go to the gearwheel on the bottom left of the PMS.
Scroll down until you reach the section for city tax rules.
In the setting you can choose between a currency or %. Click on the currency and save.
Click on the key icon in the top left corner and open the rate to adjust the amount.
In addition to the price per night, enter the amount of the city tax.
In addition to the city tax for adults, you can also enter a different amount for children. If no different rate is set, leave it at 0.

Do you have derived rates? Then all you have to do is adjust the tourist tax in the main rate, and it will automatically multiply to the persons number of the rate!

Percentage
Go to the gearwheel on the bottom left of the PMS
Scroll down until you reach the city tax rules section
In the setting you can choose between a currency or %. Click on % and save
When you indicate % you get the option to indicate how much this is related to the amount of the booking. Fill in this field and click save in the top right corner.

Set up City Tax

Adjust the tourist tax for next year or for seasons
Will the municipality change the city tax next year? Or does your municipality apply a different city tax per season? If so, you can change your city tax for the new year or change it by seasons.

Go to the cogwheel in the bottom left corner
Scroll down until you reach the city tax rules section
Indicate the period for which you want to change the city tax and choose whether it is a percentage or a fixed amount
If applicable, choose which room type the rule is for
Does your city tax change per season? Click the + to the right to add a new rule!
Click save in the top right corner!

Good to know
If you have city tax for children, when you fill in the guest details, the system will automatically adjust the total city tax taking into account the dates of birth of the guests.
Have reservations been made for the dates of the change? You can indicate in your booking conditions and possibly in the booking confirmation that the city tax is applied at the time of your stay and not at the time of booking and therefore may be a different amount if the municipality has changed this.
Which city tax is applied if the rules are out of date? Your default setting remains for the fixed amount that you can find in the price types. If the rule has expired, the city tax will fall on this amount!
Why can I set the city tax by room type? Some hoteliers have multiple accommodations in different locations, so you can apply your own tourist tax per municipality.
