Code

Each record requires a unique code to identify the packaging.

Packaging Rates

These are the details required for the rate of tax payable on an item. Multiple records can be entered to allow for different rates in different locations and changes in the rate over time.

Location

The location where this packaging rate will be used. This is based on the parent location hierarchy. You should set up rules for complete areas. You should avoid creating rules at different levels. So for example, create rules for AREA1 and AREA2. Don't create rules for AREA1 and SHOP1 (which is in AREA1).

Effective

The date the rate becomes effective for use. If this is empty, the rate is effective immediately.

Expires

The last date that the rate can be used. If this is empty, the rate does not expire.

Rate

The rate of tax payable on the packaging. This is usually a dollar value per kilo.
