Taxes and Fees - How to add exclusive Taxes and Fees to a reservation


This article describes the process of adding an exclusive tax/fee (on top of the reservation rate) to a reservation. Adding an exclusive tax/fee directly in reservation means that you need to calculate the amount of the tax/fee manually.

Add Exclusive Taxes and Fees to a reservation

Things to note:

  • When you select a fee to add manually to the folio of a reservation or house account, the system will automatically load the amount of the fee you specified when you set up your fees.
  • If you select a tax or fee that is a percentage, you will be able to write in a flat amount.
  • If the fee has an exclusive tax applied, you will see it totaled in another field before clicking the Add button. 
  • To set up the system to add and calculate the taxes/fees automatically for specific sources, see: Applying Taxes and Fees to Specific Sources
