A voucher may not cause taxes or turnover on sale, because from a tax point of view it is more or less an exchange of money for notes. The money is theoretically not in the cash register and would have to be stored separately.
This means that you have to create the article "Voucher" with 0% VAT and a voucher sales settlement type without turnover.
Because the voucher may only be tax and turnover-relevant when the service is requested. The article groups of food and beverages have deposited taxes with us as standard. You therefore need two buttons to pay for e. g. voucher sales (without turnover, picture: present - vouchers buy customers to give away) and voucher redemption (with turnover, picture: piggy bank - because you save money now).
The voucher is not taxed at the time of sale, i. e. 0%, as our groups of articles with food and beverages have deposited 7% or 19% (AT 10% or 20%) VAT. For this purpose, the cash or credit card key (relevant to turnover) is already used for sales. However, you urgently need a voucher settlement type, which does not cause turnover to be doubled in order to avoid double the turnover.
Don't sell vouchers with 19% tax, otherwise you will need all your items double in article groups with 0% VAT! This effort would also mean that you already know that a voucher will be paid for when you place an order, and that you are ordering the voucher value from the tax-free groups, otherwise you will pay double the taxes or circumstances too little.
- Create an article group "Vouchers" with 0% VAT
- Create an article "Voucher" with "Free Price" in the article group "Voucher".
- Now create the payment methods.
The difference lies in the way we handle our POS-System. For the pure form, this means two payment methods separated at turnover.
For the mixed form you only need one button to redeem vouchers. Since you choose the payment method for sales with which the customer pays and thus already generate sales (cash, credit card, and so on).
You should contact your tax advisor and ask him/her if he/she wants a pure or mixed form for the voucher sale.
