Tool Spotlight: Variable Tax Rates, Accounting For Every Occasion

Paying taxes is inevitable and important; and most important of all is getting them right the first time.

At Cobot, we aim to provide the best tools possible for managing complex tax rates. That’s why we allow for the ability to vary tax rates on your products, granting workspaces the flexibility to get specific—up to three decimal places, to be exact!

Tax season can be an arduous time, preempt the hassle by using variable tax rates. With this feature, you will have the tools necessary to apply variable tax rates on your resources so that when tax season comes, you will be ready.

What is the variable tax rates feature?

It is possible to select multiple currencies to ensure compatibility with a variety of situations, as well as set whether to display net or gross pricing when a member (or visitor) goes to book them.

To access this feature, go to your Admin dashboard and navigate to Settings » Basic » Payments. From here you are free to customize your tax and currencies to fit your business.
