Add a Tax Inclusive Option
You should have a tax-inclusive item where you can see the price of an item and it automatically subtracts the sales tax in reporting and reports the item revenue.
Yes of course! The other way to do it is to put the item as no-tax, and then clover won't be calculating tax. We would have to manually do it at the end of each month or quarter. Its silly, why not just provide this?

100%. It is so easy for you guys to change the way you calculate tax on an order, instead of taking the price of each order and then multiply by tax rate, you take the order total and divide by (1+ tax rate) and you get the tax amount. Then you can record that amount in our reports. However, when we do it now, the system has rounding errors and makes the total order like in the case @Z mentioned $9.99 instead of $10. Please add this very useful feature.
This is driving me crazy, how do you not have a tax-inclusive option??? I need it asap please!
Seriously, please implement this. We don't use coins either and its extremely difficult to deal with whole numbers when you don't have tax-inclusive as an option. We'd like to actually have it only for portions of our menu instead of having it as a global thing. Thanks!

I was very surprised to find out I couldn't set certain menu items as tax inclusive. This is a basic function on every other point of sale I've used as well. This should probably be the first "feature" you work on. I've had to return my Clover station and use Square in the meantime, but I'll follow this thread as I'd like to switch back when its implemented.
Yes, PLEASE! Clover is the only POS I've used/tested that does not have Tax-inclusive option.
I'm confused as to how they sell their POS in Europe as they price things there with tax included. If its a different software, the logic is built in and it shouldn't be difficult to port it here. Please get yourselves together, core applications need work!
I don't want to carry coins at my business, but without a tax-inclusive option there will always be rounding issues. For example an item priced at $9.18 calculates to $9.99 in Clover, when I actually want to sell it for $10. If I price the item at $9.19, tax added would make this final price to be $10.01. In both cases I have to carry coins for the customer.
Yes, a tax-inclusive option. I want to list my prices as $5.00 and have clover calculate how much of that is tax instead of having to list it as price - tax, this way I can have modifiers also as whole dollar and then taxes will never add up to pennys. This eliminates the need of coins at our business.
This would be great, or a way to round to the nearest $.25 or something. Its much easier for bars to deal with quarters only and have even amounts on their drinks for quick service. A way to build in the tax with a tax owed report would be fantastic.
merchant would like to to have he taxes included
in the price and show in th ereports. he wants the clover to be able to
calculate what the tax to the price of an item to equal a dollar
amount. Example if an item is $5.00 and tax is 7%
he wants the clover to let him know the price for the item
should be $4.67. so when he applies the 7% it will be $5.00
In Wisconsin most bars sell their drinks tax included. This means they don't collect sales tax from the customer but instead pay the tax based on their total sales at the end of the day. Our competitors have a report that tells the merchant how much taxes owed on the nontax drinks sales based on their default tax rate
bars need the ability to have the system calculate the tax they owe on liquor sold, but need to present price in whole numbers to customer and not show tax on receipt (work around of backing out the tax isn't sufficient when customer purchases multiple drinks because of fractions of cents)
