Deposits / Fees / Services / Taxes
All deposits, fees, taxes and services must first be defined and then assigned to (or removed from) all (or individual) properties. It is probably best to do this step AFTER all of your inventory has been added to Lodgix.
Please navigate to:
Settings > Inventory > Deposit / Fees / Services / Taxes
There are seven tabs that comprise the Universal Property Template:
- Reservation Deposit. Amount required to secure the reservation. This is prepaid rent.
- Security Deposit. Amount required in addition to the reservation deposit. A security deposit is always refundable and is never counted as income.
- Taxes. Amount required by state, city and municipal taxing authorities. Either a % or a per night flat fee.
- Fees. Cleaning fees, processing fees, damage protection, travel insurance, etc. Either a % or a flat fee.
- Services. Optional components of a reservation. Usually ancillary items like firewood, chef, ski lift tickets, grocery delivery, etc.
- Discounts. Discounts and Coupon Codes are covered in depth here.
- Damage Protection. Accidental damage protection is explained here.
