How to set tax

The ticket price is inclusive of tax. To set the percentage of tax, click Site Settings.
We have a TaxJar API integrated for country wise tax rate calculation so the organizer has the flexibility to manually set the tax rate or it can be automatically calculated depending on the venue location.

Tax terminology- The tax term that is used in the country, e.g. GST, VAT, etc.

Set the tax value

The tax value can be set manually or automatically by following either of the options below: 
a. Generic Tax Rate- The Organiser has the flexibility to manually set the tax rate here. The Organiser will need to uncheck Tax Integration checkbox and enter a value in Generic Tax Rate. By default it is set as 10%. 
b. Tax Integration- If the checked box is clicked it will automatically calculate the tax rate depending on the location of the venue. It is checked by default.

Note: The automatic Tax Integration checkbox always gets preference over Generic Tax Rate. If no venue is added for the event, the value of Generic Tax Rate will be implemented.
