As you are aware, on Wednesday 15th July, Tax on accommodation will be reduced to 5%.
Within the Interfaces section for some Channels, there is a Tax value that has been configured, which will add a value to reservations – THIS MAY NEED YOUR ATTENTION.
How to check…
When logged into Roomlynx Distribution, navigate to
Channel Organisation Chart -> Channel Settings -> Interface Settings
Select the relevant Channel. This setting is mainly configured for the following channels -
Expedia / Lastminute / Agoda / Hotel Direct (you may not be mapped to all of these channels)
You will see a value in the Tax Amount as per the example image below. If there is no value in the box, no action is needed.
If the current value is 20%, we will be automatically updating that value to 5%.
If the value is anything other than 20%, this will have been calculated based on your own requirements and will remain untouched. Please amend the value as required.
If you do not have access to this area of the system, or if you require any further assistance, please contact Support.
