VAT Increase in South Africa

Value Added Tax (VAT) will increase from 14% to 15% on the 1st of April 2018. To do this change in the ROBOTILL Point of Sale System is quick and easy. This article will explain how to do the change.

In ROBOTILL you can schedule price changes so that a price change only takes effect on a specific date. You cannot however schedule a TAX change. That means you will need to do the change before the start of business on the 1st of April (or after close of business the previous day). To do the change only takes a couple of seconds.

Changing VAT in ROBOTILL In ROBOTILL Manager, go to Setup > System Configuration > General Configuration > Sales Tax.

Click on 'Manage Tax Items'

Select the 14% VAT Item and click on 'Edit'.

Change the percentage to 15 and click on Update.
