Please update the net sales calculation
automatic gratuity is servers tips
currently you are adding service charges to net sales.
Restaurant doesn’t make the money, please make sure you are not adding service charges/automatic gratuity into the net sales please.
Square for Restaurants
Fired a response to you on another thread, but compulsory charges, whether labeled "service charge" or "auto gratuity" cannot be included in tips. Square for Restaurants is doing what is legally required.
We give our servers the Automatic Gratuity
Restaurants don't keep them so adding them into Net Sales doesn't make sense for record keeping prospective.
Not sure how your book keeper is following but currently none of our reports are correct because the Net Sales include the Service Charges (Automatic Gratuity)
My feature request is NOT include Automatic Gratuity or Service Charges into Net Sales.
Currently in Square for Restaurants you are adding Service Charges with the Net Sales
Service Charges are either Gratuity or Tips for our servers
Please exclude the Service Charges from the Net Sales
So our reporting is accurate please
Right now it is not accurate.
I understand the IRS article but you guys are not understanding the basic concept here.
Automatic Gratuity as you roll up under service charges belong to the server and they take them home
The restaurant doesn't keep the service charges so technically it is not NET SALES, yes it is part of the GROSS SALES but not net sales.
The requirement here for you guys to deduct service charges from the NET SALES not ADD IT where it becomes complicated and ALOT OF MANUAL CALCULATIONS.
