POS tax-free profile

If a shop is tax-free, all sales performed in it are exempt from the payment of certain taxes/duties. In the tax-free profile, it’s necessary to set a handler for the Global Blue or the Premier Tax Free interface. The POS Tax Free Profile is used for setting up the tax-free integration when POS sales are performed. When established, it ensures that certain types of goods aren’t taxed.

Global Blue and Premier are both companies that provide tax-free shipping services. Their IC2 solution is available on POS terminals, as well as on other channels. It’s possible to set up Global Blue Tax Free and Premier Tax Free services in NP Retail.

The following tax-free parameters are linked to each POS unit, and can be configured to suit your business needs:
