Updated on Mar 13, 2019

Tax rates are important as different countries have different VAT for different services offered. Some countries for example have booking taxes, other have VAT for providing certain services like jet skiing or renting a car. Adding and editing Tax rates is very easy in Jomres, but you will also need to apply the Tax Rate to a property after you have finished configuring it.
