What are Charge Types?
Charge types are the different ways Benson separates charges to guest’s invoices. They are sometimes referred to as “departments”. Examples would be: Bar, laundry, gratuity etc. Benson will have three system charges already populated. You can rename them freely.
- Accommodation charge type
- Cancellation charge type
- Moveable asset charge type
Adding a Charge Type
When adding a charge type you will need to give it a name and select the tax type associated with it.
Adding an auto charge
An auto charge will charge simultaneously with the ‘parent’ charge. And example would be a tourism tax that needs to be applied whenever an accommodation charge is added. This can be set as a percentage or a fixed amount.
