Add a price level

Select Price Calc Method – Fixed Price

Price Inc = 0.0300

This setup is for 3% of the total invoice price including GST. You will need to calculate the value for other % rates. There is a slight rounding issue that may become apparent on large invoices – there is no way around this except to override the Price Ex or Price Inc as appropriate.

On the Details tab, change the decimal places to:

Qty = 2

Sell price = 4

Add a Job and Complete the Sale

Check the Total sale value

Add the Stock CARD.FEE then change the Order Qty to equal the original job Total

In this example, the total sale before adding the CARD.FEE was $22.00, therefore 66 cents ex GST is added to the total after adding an order quantity of 22 in the Order and Supply fields of the card fee stock line.

Invoice the job.

You can see that 60 cents net ex GST has gone to the appropriate card fee account and 6 cents has been added to the GST Collected account.
