              SAM4s ER-5215M Cash Register Tax Programming

The ER-5215M has the capability to support four separate taxes. Taxes can be calculated as either a straight
percentage rate of between .001% and 99.999%, or a 60 break point tax table. Each tax may be either an add-on
tax (added to the cost of a taxable item), or a value added tax (VAT) that is included in the price of the item.

Our example will be for "Straight Percentage Tax Rate Programming"

use the following method to program a tax as a straight percentage. Programming Straight Percentage Tax Rates

  • 3. For the type of tax: If the tax is a percentage added to the sale (normal add on tax), enter: 0 If the tax is a
    percentage value added tax (VAT; calculated as part of the sale), enter: 2
  • 4. Enter 0 here for all taxes, unless if you are programming tax 4 as a Canadian GST. If tax 4 is a Canadian
    GST, enter the sum of the options following: OPTION VALUE = SUM GST (tax 4) is taxable by rate 1? Yes = 1
