Tax Inclusive/Tax Exclusive setup

Breadcrumb offers the option of setting Tax Inclusive or Tax Exclusive pricing at the Category level. Tax inclusive pricing can make bar service move more quickly as it eliminates the need to make change for items like a bottle of beer or a glass of wine.  

Exclusive Taxes: Taxes added on top of the price of an item.

Example: Chicken salad; price: $10.00; Tax Rate on item: 10%. Bill Total= $11.00

Inclusive Taxes: Taxes included within the price of an item.

Example: Chicken salad; price: $10.00; Tax Rate on item: 10%. Bill Total= $10.00

Beginning with Breadcrumb 2.9 (May, 2017), Breadcrumb will support two options for tracking taxes on checks that contain a mix of tax inclusive and tax exclusive items. Select your preference in the Tax Inclusive/Exclusive Tracking. 

What the selections mean:
Apply tax to the full item price (including the tax) - All items are assumed to be tax exclusive and tax will be charged based on the item price. So, if a $6.00 tax inclusive beer is on the bill along with one or more tax exclusive items, the tax rate will be applied to the $6 price of the beer. This is how Breadcrumb has worked before release 2.9 and this is the default tax handling. 

Reduce the price of inclusive items by the tax amount - The price of the tax inclusive item will be reduced by the amount of the tax and the tax will appear on the tax line of the check. So, if that $6.00 tax inclusive beer is on the bill along with a $10 tax exclusive burrito, the tax rate will be backed out of the inclusive item's price and will appear on the tax line on the receipt.
