Programming Tax

Most sales taxes can be programmed by entering a tax percentage rate. However, in some cases you may find that tax that is entered as a percentage does not follow exactly the tax chart that applies in your area. If this is the case, you must enter your tax using tax table programming. This method will match tax collection exactly to the break points of your tax table. See “Tax Table Programming” on page 54.

Important Note: After you have entered your tax program, test for accuracy by entering several transactions of different dollar amounts. Carefully check to make sure the tax charged by the cash register matches the tax amounts on the printed tax chart for your area. As a merchant, you are responsible for accurate tax collection. If the cash register is not calculating tax accurately, or if you cannot program your tax properly from the information in this manual, contact the CRS, Inc. Service Center at 1-888-333-6776 for assistance.

Programming a Tax Rate Percentage

1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.

2. Enter the rate, with a decimal. 0.000-99.999. It is not necessary to enter proceeding zeros. For example, for 6%, enter 06.000 or 6.000.)

3. Enter 00.

4. Enter:

Department Programming

Programming Department Status

There are two parts to department programming. Department status is set here. Depending on whether you select open or preset department status is this section, you can also program either the open department entry limit or the preset department price. See “Programming Department Entry

Limit or Price” on page 46.

Use this section to program the following status options:

 Set negative departments that subtract from the sale, rather than normal positive departments which add to the sale.

 Enforce the entry of a non-adding number before the department entry. See “Non Add

Number” on page 34 for operation sequences.

 Disable the departments, so that entries are not allowed.

 Choose Open or Preset departments. Open departments accept amount entries. Use open departments to enter different priced items into the same category. Preset departments automatically register a preprogrammed price when the department key is pressed. Use preset departments to register an individual item quickly and accurately. For example, cigarette packs or food items can be assigned to departments as presets.

When you select preset departments, you can also decide if the department can also accept open entries. This option is referred to as “preset override”.

 Set single item departments which automatically total as a cash sale immediately after the department entry. Single item departments are used to speed up one item sales.

 Select a tax status to determine whether sales tax is automatically added.

Unless otherwise programmed, departments are positive, open, not taxable, not single item departments, and accept unlimited amounts (up to 7 digit entry). Therefore, it is not necessary to program departments you wish to be open, positive, non-taxable, not single item, with no entry limit.

Advanced Tax Programming

Use the instructions in this chapter only if you wish to determine tax program entries yourself. See

“Programming Tax” on page 13 to enter a simple tax rate.

Important Note: After you have entered your tax program, test for accuracy by entering several transactions of different dollar amounts. Carefully check to make sure the tax charged by the cash register matches the tax on the printed tax chart for your area. As a merchant, you are responsible for accurate tax collection. If the cash register is not calculating tax accurately, or if you cannot find the correct tax information for your area in the Appendix, contact the CRS, Inc. Service Center at 1-888-333-6776 for assistance.

Tax Rate Programming

You can program up to three separate taxes on the ER-290. Set tax rate(s) here.

 If you are entering a tax table, see “Tax Table Programming” on page 54 to enter the tax break points.

 If you are entering a Canadian Goods and Services Tax (GST), use tax rate 4 for the

GST tax, and use tax rates 1 and/or 2,3 for any other provincial tax or taxes.

Programming Tax Rates and Status

1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.

2. If the tax is a percentage rate, with a decimal. (0.000-99.999). It is not necessary to enter proceeding zeros. For example, for 6%, enter 06.000 or 6.000.

3. For the type of tax, enter:

0

if the tax is a percentage added to the sale (normal add on tax)

1 if the tax is a percentage value added tax

(VAT; calculated as part of the sale)

Tax Table Programming

In some cases, a tax that is entered as a percentage does not follow exactly the tax charts that apply in your area (even if the tax chart is based on a percentage). In these cases, we recommend that you enter your tax using tax table programming. This method will match tax collection exactly to the break points of your tax table.

Before programming, obtain a copy of the tax table you wish to program. You will need the printed tax table if you wish to determine the break point entries yourself.

Note: You can enter up to 47 break points.

Determining Break Point Entries

1. Refer to the “Tax Table Programming Example - Illinois 6% Tax Table” on page 55 to help with this exercise.

2. Calculate the break point differences by subtracting the high side of the previous range from the high side of the dollar range.

3. Examine the pattern of break point differences to determine when the break points begin to repeat. Mark the beginning break points that do not fit a pattern as “nonrepeat breaks.” Mark the break points that are repeating in a pattern as “repeat breaks.”

Programming a Tax Table

1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.

2. Enter the number of the tax you are programming (1, 2, or 3, 4), press the TAX SHIFT key.

3. Enter the maximum amount that is not taxed, press the TAX SHIFT key.

4. Enter the first tax amount charged, press the TAX SHIFT key.

5. For each non-repeat break point, enter the high side from the sale dollar range and press the TAX SHIFT key.

6. Press the CHECK TEND key.

7. For each repeat break point, enter the high side from the sale dollar range and press the

TAX SHIFT key.

8. Press the CASH/TEND key to end the tax table program.

%1 and %2 Key Programming

There are two percentage keys on the keyboard: %1 and %2. The %1 key applies a surcharge.

The %2 key applies a discount. Without any further programming, you can apply a discount or surcharge to an individual item or to the subtotal of a sale by entering a percentage and pressing the %1 or %2 key. This program allows you to:

 decide to calculate any taxes before or after the percentage is applied

 set a preset percentage for the %1 or %2 key

 if a preset percentage is set, decide if you wish to also allow a percentage to be entered

 inactivate the key

Programming the %1 or %2 Key

1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.

2. Enter the percentage rate you wish to preset, or 0 if you only wish to enter the percentage. Press the %1 or %2key, depending on which key you are programming.

Be sure to enter the decimal point if you are setting a rate that is not an even percentage, i.e. enter 33

- (Minus) Key Programming

The - (Minus) key is used to enter the amount of a coupon that is subtracted from the sale.

 The - (Minus) key can programmed to be taxable or non-taxable. In other words, when you are subtracting a coupon, you can calculate sales tax on the net or the gross cost of the item. If the - (Minus) key is taxable, you will calculate sales tax on the net cost of the item. If the - (Minus) key is -non-taxable, you will calculate sales tax on the gross cost of the item.

 You can also program limit errors by setting the maximum amount that may be entered into the - (Minus) key. For example, setting a 3 digit limit means the maximum you can enter is $9.99. This is referred to as the High Digit Lock Out, or

HDLO.

Programming the - (Minus) Key

1. Turn the control lock to the PGM position.

2. Enter the High Digit Lock Out (entry limit) digit from the table below. (Enter 0 for no limit.)

PLU (Price Look Up) Programming

The ER-290 offers 200 PLUs (Price Look Ups) as a standard feature. Like departments PLUs (Price

Look Ups) may be open or preset.

 Preset PLUs are used to register preset items. The most significant difference between a preset department and a preset PLU is the method of registration. While preset departments are registered by simply pressing the department key, preset PLUs are registered by entering the PLU number and pressing the PLU key.

There are many possible uses for preset PLUs. Since there are many more PLUs than departments, you may use PLUs when you wish to accurately price and count a larger group of items. Possible uses include: menu items in a restaurant or items (such as cigarettes) that you wish to inventory.

 Use open PLUs when you wish enter different priced items into a larger number of categories.

Programming PLU Status

There are two parts to PLU programming. PLU status is set here. Depending on whether you select open or preset PLU status is this section, you can also program either the open PLU entry limit or the preset PLU price. See “Programming PLU Entry Limit or Price” on page 64.

Use this section to program the following status options:

 Set negative PLUs that subtract from the sale, rather than normal positive PLUs which add to the sale.

 Enforce the entry of a non-adding number before the PLU entry. See “Non Add

Number” on page 34 for operation sequences.

 Disable the PLUs, so that entries are not allowed.

 Choose Open or Preset PLUs.

 Set single item PLUs which automatically total as a cash sale immediately after the

PLUs entry. Single item departments are used to speed up one item sales.

 Select a tax status to determine whether sales tax is automatically added.
