Hi. How can we help?

Configuring tax settings

Tax settings should be something to set and forget once they are working correctly.

  • Only Owners and Managers are able to access tax settings in Lightspeed Golf
  • Access to Settings - Sales Setup at the employee role level in Lightspeed Retail (R-Series) is required
  • Tax settings can be found in Lightspeed Golf under Settings --> Taxes
  • Tax Classes & Sales Taxes

Please reach out to the Lightspeed Golf Support team if you require further assistance.
