How to use Loyverse with different VAT rates


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have a question regarding Loyverse POS.


We have a restaurant and we just opened a food shop next to it. In the shop, we sell products with different VAT (we are based in Italy and we have products with 4, 10, 22%).

I was able to set up all the VAT rates for the different products and it works great.

We have the fiscal checkout machine required by the local laws and I wish it was a compatible model, but it seems it is not.


That being said, I would like to use Loyverse to manage our stock level and help us track the sales of the different categories of products based on the VAT and to help the cashier in the checkout process.


At this time, our cashier must digit on the checkout machine the value of the goods and the corresponding VAT rate. For example: if a customer buys 1kg of apples at €3.00, 2 kg of beef at 12€, 1 bottle of wise at 7€, 3kg of oranges at 4€ the casher must digit:

3.00+4% button

12.00+10% button

7.00+22% button

4.00+4% button (again).


It would be great if Loyverse could help me to get around this. 

Ideally, I would like to use Loyvers to input all the goods bought by the customer and then have a report the total value of the goods divided by the VAT rate, so that the cashier can input the totals and hit the VAT rate only once.

Please see the attached picture to understand what I need.

Does this make sense to you and has anybody worked out a way to do something like this?

As far as I know, in the total it is not possible to divide the tax based on the amount it is applied to.

It is possible to have different tax on each item, but the question is it the same tax on the same item all the times, or does it differ from one sale to the other?

How to apply different tax on each item can be done from the item's card on the back office or the POS (this is useful if you have the tax applied to the item in all purchases)


Or on the item on the ticket on the POS (good if you apply the tax differently from one sale to the other)


I have 2 different types of taxes in my account, so this is how my receipts would like and I am afraid it is not possible to change the receipts format and how it is organized

      Hello, My accountant has asked me to produce a report where the sales are shown as before tax, tax percentage, total sale. Since my catalogue is configured to have the tax included in the articles when I generate the report Gross and Net profit are the same amount, is there any way of showing the price of the sales and articles before the tax is applied? this is a major feature for VAT liable business.
      Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

      Some of the items that we buy from the supplier has VAT (added separately). But in the advance inventory management, there is no field to input the VAT.
      Is there some way we can input this field?
      We cannot simply add the VAT to the cost as we need to pay the government the VAT difference so this field has to be separatd.
