This article explains how to set up your city tax on your Amenitiz account, whether it is calculated in € or in %, per adult or per person.
  1. Your city tax is calculated in €, per adult
    Simply go to > Settings in the sidebar of your Amenitiz administrator area and then go to > Taxes:Screenshot_2021-10-20_at_10.59.43.png
    A new page will open where you can check all your city tax settings. Click on > New city tax at the bottom right of your screen to create the city tax you wish to apply to your clients:Screenshot_2021-10-20_at_11.09.48.png

    You can choose to set up a different city tax for each room, or set up a city tax for some accommodations only.;
    You can also choose to exclude or to include the price of the city tax in the price of the room.

    You will then be able to add a name to your city tax and the price you wish to apply. If you want, you can define a period for which this city tax will be applied.
    This amount will be automatically multiplied by the number of adults and the number of nights of the reservations.

    You will then find all your city taxes in your city tax report.

  2. Your city tax is calculated in €, per adult with a % of VAT
    The city tax can be added from the settings > taxes as well, and you will be able to add a VAT in % included in this city tax.

  3. Your city tax is calculated in %
    If your city tax is calculated in %, you can create it as an extra, it will be an extra calculated in % and applied automatically:Create_a_city_tax.gif

    If you have an additional tax on your city tax, for example a regional tax of 10%, you can apply this additional tax to your city tax: city tax * 1 + additional tax = 3 + 1,1 in this case, so the city tax will be 3,3%.

    You will then find this city tax in your charges report.

  4. Your city tax is calculated in €, per person
    If your city tax is calculated in € per person (adults and children), you can create it as an extra, it will be an extra calculated in € per person, applied automatically and every day:Create_a_city_tax_2.gif

    You will then find this city tax in your charges report.

  5. The city tax on the OTA side
    The city tax is applied to your online website and is not sent to OTAs. To configure your city tax in your different connected platforms, do not hesitate to do it directly on the corresponding OTAs.
    When reporting your city tax, you will need to import your city taxes reports from the OTAs, depending on if they collect it for you or not.

When you change a city tax, it will affect future reservations only, the previous reservations are not taken into account for this change.
