Senior Discount in Philippines


Recommended Posts

in our country we have such a call senior discount and this discount is computed by this formula:

Product Price: P300
VAT Rate: 12%
Formula: Selling Price ÷ VAT Rate = VAT Exempt Sales
Solution: P300 ÷ 1.12 = P267.86

Senior citizens are given a 20% discount on every goods and services. To compute for the discount, subtract the percentage by multiplying the VAT exempt sales by 20%.

Formula: VAT Exempt Sales x 20% = Senior Citizen Discount
Solution: P267.86 x 0.20 = P53.57

- I cannot add the less VAT in our POS before we less the 20% discount, can you help me? Is there a way? I hope there is.

I am afraid it is not possible to do that on Loyverse, the discount will be deducted first and then the taxes taken into account after that

Please refer to the below image for a test receipts I made



Another point, taxes in Loyverse are calculated differently. I would recommend checking the below link for more information on how they are calcualted

Hi Amirah,

Thank you for taking time to answer my question. One more, would it be possible to have that feature for Loyverse even we pay certain fee to develop that senior discount?

Honestly, we love Loyverse and it really help us in our business. I hope you will consider this for us.

Thank you.

I had this problem too but what I eventually did as a compromise was to create a variable senior citizen discount. I only needed to compute specific orders with a calculator then manually add the discount later on.
